It's the end of another year already! Who'd have thought eh?
While things are still pretty messed up I've been playing guitar more that I did when I was in my 20s, or at least more constructively. A few years ago my wife gave me a voucher for some meditation classes. I really wanted to enjoy them, but in the silence all I could think about was all the things I could have been doing. Maybe some other time I'll try again.
In the meantime I find playing the guitar a distraction or form of meditation where my mind is completely occupied (yeah, yeah. Doesn't take much I heard you thinking). Particularly with ear training by working out songs. In my 20s I just bluffed my way through most of the solos when playing in bands. It's great to revisit those solos that I can hear in my head but not play, slow them down and work them out.
This track is one of those that I would have played some G major/E minor pentatonic blah over thinking it was awesome... but it wasn't... Hopefully this is a bit closer to the original.
Oh yeah. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
