This is a great Darol Anger tune that he wrote back in 1977. Been trying to learn it, this is where I am at with it so far:
Very nice mate. Loved every second of it
You are much better than most of us here, and probably much younger than many, and have probably been doing it for somewhat longer than many of us oldies here.
But.... I'll catch up to you one day mate.
I really will
Seen it all. Done it all. Can't remember most of ..... What was I saying????
@Ferret - Hah. I hope you do! I have been playing for a long time (I started when I was 4 stopped when I was 16, started again when I was 28 and now I'm 40, that's what 24years). A good portion of that time was just playing not "practicing". These days I'm really working on practicing, not just playing. Learning to play in keys that aren't as easy (B, Bb, F, E), working on stylizing my playing, etc. I think my biggest motivation is playing with people that are better than I am. So I really want to work hard and play at their level. I always say that the three pillars of playing and improving are:
* playing with others
Each of those things builds on each other and motivates you.
@fiddlinsteudel - AWESOME!! I want to be able to play just like you when I grow up!!!!
