  1. Yes. Post up some that you like.
  2. My two are pretty in different ways.
  3. Good times bad times. The little solo bit are always rubbish when I play them and I find the verse bit almost impossible.
  4. "Do you know Foxey Lady" "Nope" "It's in F sharp, it'll be good"
  5. I missed this when it was first posted. That is pretty awful, but it's a shame you never went. There are some good guys that used to go to that Jam Paul Campbell is always fun to play with, when when he forgets all the words.
  6. One downside is one chap in particular regularly calls a bass solo. I just can't stand it.
  7. That's what makes it for me. It's a social club for music nerds. We get them in, the landlord makes some money and everyone has a good time. At the one we did for several years in a pub that sadly got converted into housing it was weekly and rammed out every time. A good mix of musicians and people from the surrounding area. We've had some fairly big names in so maybe a bit more of a draw than is usual.
  8. I'm in the house band for a jam night. It's mostly blues but anyone can do anything and I just ask what he chords are before we start. This generally means the guy will realise it is too difficult when he starts rattling off a thousand changes or that it is straight forward enough. Get good at knowing the chords on a guitar so you can watch for the changes on anything you forget and just relinquish control. It made a huge difference to my confidence, transformed the way I play with my normal band to the point that we don't rehearse at all anymore and new songs get added to the list a week before.
  9. Not sure he played the same sort of gigs.
  10. hahaha I jsut went to watch The Lemon Twigs on Youtube. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
  11. No it's good, it has made me think a bit more about why I'm doing this. I'm also quite geeky so getting into a subject like this is the way I learn.
  12. I'm not learning Wooton or Jaco lines. In terms of stuff I'd like to play there are loads and loads of things that I've never bothered to work out or have tried and failed. I'm mostly interested in being able to express myself in the genres that I like funk, rock, motown, blues, soul etc. to get there I think I need a general level of technical skill and knowledge in the areas set out in the original post Technique, facility and articulation Time and groove Fingerboard visualisation Genre based studies Language of music (phrases and harmony)
