I didn't quite practice every day last week, but I think I got at least 5 days in. Probably an hour plus each day. I posted that solo last week, and now I'm working on the song that goes with it. There's the intro solo that I PM'd you guys, a whole bunch of rhythm stuff, then the main solo I posted last week, then an outro chorus with some licks between the vocal lines. Mostly just working on memorizing the rhythm parts and getting the timing right - it's a slow blues so you gotta lay way back in that groove
That's about it for me. Got a birthday coming up at the end of August so it might be time to start saving up for a new toy lol
I'm worse at what I do best And for this gift I feel blessed Our little group has always been And always will until the end
Think I played at least 30-60 minutes a day this week, but missed Friday due to busy work day and then family gathering in the evening (didn't get to go see Robert Cray who was playing in town Friday night ). Still working Stetina's "Total Rock Guitar", but did break out a couple of old blues books as well.
Well bout same for me 1 plus everyday except Friday. Friday night went to see Bob Dylan in concert, what a great show. No lesson this week either so substituted practice review some already covered material. Technic wise working on developing a rhythm that includes A rake technique.
I got in 6+ hours. Still working on various Jazz standards - basic chord and melody versions to play with somebody else and also some solo guitar arrangements.
I've taken a step back to the basics. I was constantly biting off more than I can chew. In another words, I was spending way too much time trying to play things beyond my skill level and not enough time playing simpler things that are within my grasp. That's an old story, but I've never really broken out of that habit.
I watched 2 excellent documentaries. "Life in 12 Bars," which is the best doc I've seen about Eric Clapton, and "Still on the Run," about Jeff Beck. Beck was my 1st guitar hero way back when he was with the Yardbirds. I was blown away when I first heard songs like "Heart Full of Soul" and "The Shape of Things." He was a true innovator and doesn't seem to get the credit he deserves.
Still thinking about recording something. We'll see what happens.
