I have just played the first backing track and rattled off my first attempt at improvisation using what I've gleaned so far. Well, even to me, it sounded not bad.
The hair on the back of my neck stood up just thinking of the implications of what I have here. There is nothing quite so daunting as to be told by the band that I am involved with, just to throw a solo in when I feel like it. Now, I'm a lot further along the road than I was, thanks to you.
