I have a song going through my head and I thought about blipping it but if I do that I will get sucked in there for hours. I think it would be a better idea to play my own guitar, don't you? not to worry about the neighbors: headphones after hours. and since I'm mostly playing scales and practicing licks, I'm not banging out loud chords that everyone can hear without amplification.
I am trying to get good enough at improvising to go play out on the street, but it seems I need quite a bit more practice. the hard part is keeping all the patterns straight at first. I am concentrating on minor scales for the time being, with a blues scale thrown in when i get bored. blues have a predictable pattern to them but the minor scale is similar enough in all five positions (I have five. I don't know how many the rest of you have) that it is a bit confusing. I'm slowly learning the names of the notes on the fretboard but that is slow going. when you are old, rote memorization is not as easy as it once was! I need some sort of flashcard system. looking from my fretboard to the map I printed out is very slow.
ok. first caffeine.
