Keeping it fresh
on Fri Dec 03, 2010 12:56 am
The worse thing a guitarist can do is just play one style of music or ignore what can be learned by exploring a different sound.
If your shooting for the stars or just looking for that cover band gig,
sooner or later if your a serious guitar player we all have to face the fact that if you want work the person with the biggest trick bag gets the gig.
While speed and sweep picking is impressive, Its not all there is. Why do you think the solo's that are truly remembered by the masses have depth, soul and unique phrasing.
There are great backing tracks all over youtube and the web in all sorts of styles and keys. This is a great and cheap way of exploring different styles and learning the art of soloing and developing a unique sound of your own. Its also a great way of developing in key memory playing.
Keep it fresh, play something different today!
