    Playing that stuff along with a timing reference can make a big difference. But, you're doin' good!

    Josh, Nice job on all three of these. They still need a little work, but you're getting really close.

    Hi Josh, You appear to be going well with these lessons.  I think that yes you are getting to a point of playing or recording to a backing rhythm as your next step if you haven't done so already.
    It is something we have to do and once you have done it a few times with one of the easier pieces slowed down a little you will go from strength to strength.

    Another good one. You got it under your fingers. The cool thing about this track and the next one is that they are SOOO much fun to play. Soon you'll have it mastered because it's so good it's always a warm up and cool down song! Nice man.

    Thanks Guys, My real glimmer of hope is that I've beenplaying Hideaway for a much shorter amount of time and it has come up to about the same level as everything else, so I am picking things up faster.

    John I have not palyed anything to a backing track, so as usual you are right, thats the next step.

    I am pretty happy with where I have come - and I always think I sound beeter off camera  :-[

    You're on a roll, keep 'em coming. Nice finger stretch there, :eek:, that will be a killer for me to do.

    You'll be fine.  there are a lot of posts about this - and 2 to 5 is nothing (or so I'm told) :eek: :eek:,  a good excercise is the minor blues scale - start at 5th position (1st finger 5th fret - A note) and work down the neck, by the time you get to 2nd postion you'll have no problem with that stretch

    Sunny I have a bit of a hard time playing and looking at the music (or the TAB, since I can't really read the music) so once I have the tune under my fingers I paly everything from memory - I cannot imagine playing something even like th 4 note solo completely from memory but maybe someday.  If I could read music beter maybe I wouldn't play form Memory most of the time and I would play better, but I'm not sure about that either.

    I'm due for that AHA ;)

    Nice work Josh.  Sounded real good.  As you progress your going to be amazed at what you'll be able to play just from memory.   Most of the solos you hear in the BGU recording section are being played from memory.

    Hi Josh

    Sorry missed these.
    I'm heading this way so it is great to hear how they're supposed to be. :)

    Regarding playing from memory. I think you have to do this anyway because music doesn't flow until you know it really well.
    If you have to concentrate on the book, you aren't concentrating on your playing. I play with the book until I'm getting the piece and then close it up and practice without. I also try to run through without looking at my fretboard or picking hand all the time. (don't always succeed with that one though!)
    You don't see too many blues players up there with music stands.

    Sunny play in small lick each time he become easier to memorize. It just learn the lyrics of a song.

    jhagan421 good work!
