I've been working full time on Beat It's solo for the last two months. It's very challenging as I'm not a shredder, I can't really play it by now but practicing pays, I can now play it with a metronome at 75% speed. I'm so happy
Awesome! Love Beat it! Funny story, Ed actually recorded that for free and didn't want any royalties for it which is pretty remarkable if you think about it.I've been working full time on Beat It's solo for the last two months.

Welllll I’m currently working on Heretic and Unholy Confessions! Then I’ll work on I won’t see you tonight pt. 1&2Just out of my own curiosity and interest in other people's musical interests I'm wondering what everyone is working on.
personally I'm working through a list of songs I've made a while ago. At the moment I'm almost finished learning Paradigm and the next song from the list is Out Of My Mind by John Mayer Trio. I effectively have 19 songs to go still. I also am gonna work on my entry for the contest in the coming week.
How about you guys and girls?
That's so cool, I didn't know that. It's very impressive when you think that a lot of people see this solo as one of his bests.Awesome! Love Beat it! Funny story, Ed actually recorded that for free and didn't want any royalties for it which is pretty remarkable if you think about it.
Ooh, it would be awesome if you join the contest!Honestly I'm just trying to get back into regularly practicing again When I started playing again I was super focussed and playing every day, so I want to get back into that mode and also work up the courage to participate in the contest
I know the feelingI have so many things that I started working on and then just kinda... stopped The main things I was working on were Heretic, sweeps/Not Ready to Die and working out a few video game themes by ear. Got the themes done, did fairly well with Heretic, sweeping still needs a lot of work. Now I'm going back to basics, learning the fretboard, working on general technique and trying to get back into a decent schedule!
That's awesome! I'd love to learn how to play piano properly. I think everyone goes to phases where they don't play guitar as much as they'd hope for whatever reason tbhI hate to admit it, but I literally haven't touched a guitar in 6 months. We moved this last year and I am doing a lot of work on the new house. I do try to make time everyday to play piano. I am working on stride hand - which is kind of old school jazz or ragtime.
I'm enjoying it very much and it's giving me a well-needed break from the guitar. Everything I am learning on piano will inform my guitar playing when I get back to it. And I will. I have taken a few breaks from guitar over the years. It clears my head and allows me to approach it with fresh ears and fresh ideas.
