    Only the video was an actual assignment. The second wasn’t, and that shows in my playing.

  2. Just my 2 cents, but you are rushing your lines. Practice with a metronome. You should be playing to some kind of time keeping device the vast majority of the time so you can get your time very solid.

    Focus on hitting the 1 solidly, without anticipating the beat and clean up your notes with a firm fret technique.

    This Victor Wooten video shows a good way to use a metronome

    You are right, I was rushing, and terribly so on the blues scale clip. I do use a metronome, and it has been a big help for me. I had been learning and practicing “Hip Hug Her” from the Duck Dunn book, and I set that metronome at 110, and all sorts of stuff just fell into place!:laugh:
