Ive been playing alot of latin stuff recently in practice. Just for warm ups and soundchecks...e.t.c. I found a rythm i like (gipsy kings: silver hands), and it seems i use ALOT of dead notes. I can play it pretty fast and improvise parts into solos and stuff, just i use so many dead notes. I cant seem to get into the groove without using them. I feel like a freak. (yet again) I was wondering if anyone else finds themselves almost over-using this technique? just wondering.
