I've been bouncing back and forth amongst several different courses here and through TrueFire, but recently decided to focus, after hearing the following from my girlfriend. "I don't know what you've changed, cuz you're gear and what you're studying all the time, but you've made some dramatic improvement in the last few weeks. I mean, you're really getting good!" So what is it you ask (as if the title doesn't give it away)? I was sitting out on the patio with my acoustic, while she was playing with the dog. I've been working through the first two choruses of the blues Griff uses as the 13th example of Section 2 of How To Play the Blues Alone and a comping pattern out of section 11 of Blues Guitar Unleashed. And you know what I think elicited the response? That I'm finally getting beyond just a lick, or a small section of something and playing a "song". Playing something that a larger population can relate to. Yeah... I'm excited! Super excited!
