    heres the thing. im either gonna learn this stuff.....or i aint gonna learn it. i AM a wild ass. and i wanna rock. jazz is cool i guess but i think im wanting to learn it for the wrong reasons. i have a college degree for the wrong reasons. the only reason i have the damn thing is because it was part of the deal with the judge.....otherwise i would have gone to prison.
    i dont feel i have a very long time left on this earth.
    im trying to learn this **** but it just aint in my blood. or it might be in my blood more than i know.
    im gonna play what i want....if you dont like it....im really sorry. no im not.....i dont even care. sue me.

    If the form says things that are not things you want to say, you aren't going to do it. Whether or not that's the case for you and jazz I have not idea.

    I love heavy, heavy, heavy guitars, but most metal is saying stuff that I don't want to say so I don't play metal. It's all as simple as that.

    "I yam what I yam..."

    I would like to be able to play some jazz and I think there are things I would like to say in the form but I just don't have time to put into it right now, so...

    I’m trying :(

    I struggle with finding the best 7th chord grip. For the 8 bars intro, I played E shape F7 and Bb7 in my last take, they sounded bad.

    I believe true freedom comes in unknowns. We can all walk comfortably along on our individual well worn paths. But freedom is knowing that we can explore the unknown and not lose ourselves. The only change is we understand more.

    What’s the correct way to teach ears recognizing chords/notes? I know repetition is the way, however, I feel that my memory doesn’t last for long or it gets overwritten.

    Whenever I practice scales, I can tell if my guitar is out of tune when a note sound weird. If you ask me what note is it, I can’t tell without having it fretted.

    Learning chord progressions helps you recognize chords by the way they sound.

    Intervals?



    A half hour a day focusing on these things and within a few months it will get easier to hear the sound and then play the sound. It's focus...and time. You have to do the time. :)

    Time is what I need. I'll have to adjust my sleeping hours and change practice time to dawn instead of late night.
