    So last blast. Screw the head. Let that pan-pipes bloke do it, he's pretty good!

    Kris apparently wants me to use a backing track. Very well, but only for a short time. Then I go back to my own backing... but same solo ideas (if you can call them that).

    Hope he likes it. I don't :-)

    It is important whether the backing track inspires you.
    There are many different backing tracks and you have to choose the one that suits you.

    That's why I choose mine. Same sound, same guitar, always in tune

    I am inspired mainly by playing with musicians.
    I treat all these backing tracks as a metronome.
    I play a little differently with Aebersold tracks - there often the accompaniment is more natural.
    I have no problem to fine tune the guitar to the accompaniment.
    I like to use Band in The Box because there are so many possibilities to create backing tracks.
    The metronome doesn't get boring then.

    Do you have a cure for this? I cut it opening a can on Tuesday. I'm still going.

    Dressing in a spray.
    When I had a wound on my finger, it helped heal.
    And I already thought it was from Donna L.'s fight.

    It's okay, it doesn't hurt. I think I'll make it

    I hesitated to post this. I have struggled to get the tempo up past 170, and for soloing, I find I have trouble even finding my chord tones. So this is several choruses of me hunting for the nearest chord-tone. Most of you will be able to play better than this, and so consider this proof that you can, indeed, do better!

    Consider this a cry for help!

    Don't worry about the tempo.
    You combine very well with the notes in this tune.I like that a lot.
    You don't play mechanically and I hear you trying to form your own phrases.
    Remember that too fast tempo often turns off your thinking and tightens your hands.
    Good job!
    This is a tune that has to be practiced for years/extremly difficult for guitar/.

    Thank you for that encouragement. Through all those choruses, I think I did have about 4 or 5 ideas that worked well. I also was puzzled about the correct changes for the last half, since charts vary, so I started just playing it by ear based on what I was hearing from the backing track.

    I do love this tune and hope to keep working on it.

    I've been messing around with this a bit. Still don't have the head at tempo/clean, so not ready to let that see daylight, but here's some blowing over over the form.
