        Weekly improv jams with a drummer and bassist did it for me





        Not to sound like a smug bastard, but I've put in SO many hours of improv jams that I feel like I could pretty much hold my own in damn near any context, except maybe some super complex 5-key-change-per-second jazz ****************

            Getting a VHT.



            I thought I was pretty good until I got to hear how sloppy my leads were without layers of saturation and compression to make them sound better.

              Yep. I recorded 2 solos last night. It was like Jekyll and Hyde. One was awesome (for me) ..the other..so bad I may keep it. I kinda like how gonzo it is.

                      I can't play leads for ****************...but threads like these motivate me. David Gilmour motivates me. Lots of players motivate me...I just don't feel like I have the time to get that good. I could probably do 30 minutes a day, and it'd take me a lifetime to be able to play what I hear in my head...Bummer.

                            playing lots and lots of blues over the past year has injected a whole bunch of new phrasing, quickness, and soul/feeling/expressiveness into my playing. Made my improvisation and my ability to listen for chord changes way better too.
