Well I have spent the last four Mondays rehearsing with a new originals band. Super good front man and really awesome material. Just got an email today, I'm not going to work out. I thought it was going pretty good. I had all the song structures learned and about half of the complex riffs down. This is a first for me. I'm taking away from this experience the following: 1 - Practice more scales, especially higher up on the neck 2 - Rehearse in different keys 2 - Practice scales in different modes This was a very humbling experience and I'm sure going to learn from it. Not complaining, just working through it - thanks for listening.
