Yeah, that's what I'm talking about! Let's hear some of that original stuff.

I'm giving it a listen, James. Maybe it will inspire me to get off my butt and come up with something original, myself.

Craig,
I haven't really "worked" on a tune or specific
technique in a very long time but the question
you pose got some interesting responses.
So. . . . .here goes mine. The benefit I got
learning other's music was far more than just
the tune itself but the variety of elements used
to perform the song. Example: The
eccentricities of rythmic feel and
syncopation, how a certain chord or
progression evokes a certain emotion,
dynamics of loud and soft (I prefer loud
myself), how guitar blends or stands out in a
band situation. James a.k.a. Willie-
YEAAA!! I visited your soundclick area.
Listened to a few and liked it. This is the kind
of stuff that sparks and grows the creative
process. Darren H. and Dale L, Welcome
back to guitardom. My question to you is: How
could you stay away so long?!
GEE-MUH-NEEZ!, after a few days I
get the shakes if I dont play. Now my efforts
are concentrated on composition and
recording and beleive me, I am taking full
advantage of the learning curve in both
subjects. Dale?, you wanted postings of
original music? You will find my
contributions to
the wholenote community on my member
home page I hope you enjoy. May your strings
stay tuned and your hand shake only
when doing vibrato. Adios, Scott

Craig, I don't know. As much fun as I'm having, it's like I went 15 years without seeing or talking to a best friend. I think that after my teens and once I started working, that the dream of being a guitar player in a band seemed unreachable so I just gave up trying. Now I realize how foolish that was, because just playing the guitar is reward enough, and now that I'm a little older and more disciplined, I find I'm progressing on it much faster that I did when I was a teenager. Now I have to play every day, otherwise I feel like I'm depriving myself of sustenance.

It's a good question why I stopped, and difficult to answer. I guess what happened is that life got in the way and I had less and less time. And so, it seemed like every time I did sit down with the guitar, I was worse than last time. I was UN-learning to play and getting worse with time. Which made me depressed, which made me play less, which made me worse...

Now, I look at it differently. It is just something to do to relax. I don't worry about how good I am, just how much I enjoy it. I have been recording myself and putting together songs and I am getting better and better at that even when my playing doesn't improve. I have as much fun putting together the drum tracks and mixing it down and stuff as I do playing. It's fun to create something, even if it is only my version of someone else's song. I don't care if I am better or worse than I was last week, as long as I am making music and enjoying it. It may sound a bit strange to say on a guitar site, but now it's more about making music and having fun than being a great guitar player.

I do need to start trying to write my own stuff, though. That will kick the creativity part up a notch. I think I have a mental block that I can't do it. (I was working on a collaborative effort with someone else, which I thought would help, but that got sidetracked for now.)
