    Had gotten sws for Christmas. Started with BGU 2.0, about 3/4 down. Couldn't wait to look into SWS and man I got to tell you. Alot of stuff I've been doing is starting to come together. Haven't played with the CD yet, but I know it's going to be pretty cool. Also going to try and use my drum machine at different rhythms to see what I can come up with.

    Oh man, you are going to love this program! I just finished solo #4 and it is such a blast. I love every solo in this set.

    Yep, that's the same path I took BGU (I got about half way through) then SWS, then back to finish BGU.
    SWS gave me the confidence to try to create my own solos.

    One of my favorites, actually most of my problem is having too many favorites!

    I came back to to solo 7 after a little hiatus. Now I don't like Griff talking in Blues Boxes cause I'm so used to Box 1 Box 2 stuff etc. Iam translating everything to that language so to speak.

    I just started to revisit SWS about two weeks ago and very happy I did. The solos are great and it opens up a lot of possibilities for improvisation :cool:
