I was going to make a pretty, emotional, well thought out, bluesy ballad. Instead, I did this.

One take, 5 minutes, zero edits, no harmonies ;) and no plan at all. But it was fun to do!

Oh wow.... Thanks Ake! smile.gif

I REALLY appreciate that! For not having a plan, and only a few tricks up my sleeve, I guess it came out pretty ok. smile.gif

At least for only one take. And I didn't cheat! Wink

Thank you so much acoustic! The more I critique it, the more it's growing on me. Thanks!

One thing I try not to do is, over think what I'm playing. When I go back and critique my stuff I then hear every little mistake and then second guess what I did and sometimes erase a other wise good solo. Thinking I'll do a better take. But you know what. I've found that when I listen to the redo something is missing, It's the feeling I had the first time around. So for me it's a trade off. A less than perfect solo with all the feeling that was inspired in the moment by the music. Or a solo with better technique without the inspired emotion. I'll take the inspired emotion any day...

Wow. Very well put. That's the dilemma, completely. While I suffer from the same flaw most musicians / artists / etc have in common (overly critical perfectionism), feedback, practice and confidence in my competence have helped over the years. I do make a conscious effort to be less lazy today though.

Aside from loving the way they sound, that why I try to do so many harmonies. You can't fake matching up two parts played in different places on the neck. You have to do that right or it doesn't work.

Today, I try to keep Haffast less half-assed then it used to be. smile.gif

PsychoPsycho That's what makes this place so cool. Do what you want, on the spur of the moment sometimes is the best way... and it sure worked here. shredding the blues smile.gif Damn good man !!

Thanks Psycho! Honestly, I think I only know how to play one way, the backing track is all that ever changes. Ha ha smile.gif

Danalyze45Danalyze45 I love the one take stuff....when it happens, the spontaneity grabs my ear before any other element. This one has that in buckets smile.gif

Sometimes I have a tough time differentiating between aimless and pointless. smile.gif

Thanks Dan. It was certainly spontaneous. i can admit that much smile.gif
Sounds like: [ Improv ] [ Lazy ] [ Half-assed ]
