So, for the last few months I've been playing a LOT more guitar, being that I've got a Metallica cover show coming up. And, of course, I've been playing lots of Metallica and some other metal tunes to get my chops back up.
Well, I mis-clicked in iTunes, and fired up a Johnny Winter song, and ended up playing classic rock for the rest of the night . Man, I love all those old, tired, heard-it-100-times tunes. Probably because it's how I first learned to play... My dad showed me a few chords, and I picked up a few more from a Mel Bay lesson book, but about 95% of what I know I learned from trying to play all those classic rock tunes that I already knew by heart. Just me and a radio in my parent's garage for all four years of high school.
Tonight, that's probably what I'll be doing
Also, it's Friday after a very long week, and my GF will be in town, so I'm particularly excited for 5pm to roll around
