I should have started working on the Exist solo a lot earlier, damn you for being awesome Gypsy jazz. The good thing is that now I started working on it it means I'm getting closer to starting with the Riff Challenge @Rute Rodrigues gave me(which is probably also gonna take forever again)
The analysis of The Thrill is gone will be a bit later. My Guitar is horribly intonated so I got to change the strings first. It hopefully will be up on Tuesday. The poll for the one for the week of 17-24 Februari Will be up tomorrow as usual.
I'm working on the whole floating pick hand thing by improvising over Dark eyes and minor swing backingtracks at 100 BPM. I mess up a bunch of times but at time I can get some decent sound out of my guitar. It may also simply be a case of Ids tired I'm late and the fact I need to change strings but I consider those bad excuses
I just started wondering, are people still doing the metal minutes? I'm kinda stuck on the parts of exist I still want to do(because I kinda prioritized gypsy jazz in the past couple weeks) and have to do stream of consciousness afterwards but the metal minute thing seems to be dying out a little, which I think is a shame.
Damn, completely redefining your picking hand is difficult and also slightly disencouraging. This whole gypsy jazz floating picking hand thing is difficult, went from being able to play 5 notes per beat at 180 BPM to about 2 or so per beat at 100 BPM. But I will be able to crazy Django, Jimmy Rosenberg, Stochelo Rosenberg stuff with it someday (I hope)
