    After 50+ years of playing self-taught guitar, I am now (with the help of an instructor) practicing different scale forms (4 over 6, 4 over 5, 2 over 5, etc.) and cycle of fourths using forms of 7th and maj7 chords.

    Magic Sam’s Lookin’ Good, I’ve got the boogie part down, I’m just struggling with the more “scratchy” parts in the middle. Great fingerpicking work out!

    Thanks, I’ve got the first solo pretty much down pat (for me anyway). I’m working on the second one and it is a tough one for my level of play.
    I have come to realize that the only way to sound like David Guilmour is to be him.

    I was reminded that even Tiger Woods has a golf teacher.

    Pretzel Logic. I'm wondering if I can make it sound good without singing?

    Stevie Ray's version of "marry had a little lamb" it's not overly difficult but getting Stevie's swagger to translate isn't.

    I'm learning to play the finorton, a two octave double Scandinavian block flute that the player must hold with both ends in his mouth. You can always spot a finortonist by his smile....

    I'm currently learning Jump by Van Halen. I don't know why I agreed to it, even the keyboard riff isn't easy, let alone the guitar solo! It's made me want a Floyd Rose though, even though Eddie didn't use one in this song. :D

    I’m learning a Matt Schofield live solo from Travellin’ South. It’s taken me a month to do a bad version of 30 seconds from it. But I’m learning a lot in the process.

    Couldn’t do it without my guitar teacher. If I ever get the full two minutes of it down it will be party time.

    Today is Monkey Man by the Stones. I know how to play it, but I just can’t play it as good as I want to.

    Decided its time to learn some Prince. Saw some clips of his acoustic set from 2004 and attempting some of that since I've been hacking on my acoustics lately.

    Starting off with

    Cream
    Sometimes it Snows In April
    Sweet Thing

    Cream is a fun one. Pretty easy but has some good challenging fills/licks in between the rhythm parts.
