    Well I like this and finally got down to it. Solo 1 is great it has open thinks up for me. I got a Fender Mustang Micro back in June for my birthday lol. So I can turn on bluetooth and hook up to screen and play and listen to it quietly through headphones. I have been stuck on scales 1&2 for a long time. Just in the last couple of days this has opened up using more than the 2 scales. Thanks Griff already gettting out of the course. just on Solo 1

    Well playing on solo 3 now getting good on 1 and 2 threw in Killer solo. But counting on 12/8 time on solo 3 is tough.

    I'm pretty sure I remember @Griff saying that you can count 12/8 as if it's a 4/4 shuffle. 1&a, 2&a 3&a 4&a...
