So this song is great as it has lots of room for different voicings but can be quite problematic because you have lots of room for LOTS of different voicings and they all work. So I was mixing and matching and haven’t settled on some yet just having fun.

Hmm... not sure ...maybe no one is online or likes it. Surprised

Took a lot of study but I'm learning different voicings so now I can approach it in different keys and chord melodies. Hell of a lot of work but hey I have my own end goal so I have to be patient.

Decided I want to be bale to play any song from a basic jazz sheet plus improv as good or better as some of the pedal legends without pedals. Surprised Insane but I'm going to give it my best shot.

Cheers to the years of practice ahead. :guitar:

Quite doable to improvise confidently on any chart. Just keep at it. It is good to have a band situation that keeps your nose to the grindstone. It is probably sensible to admit that some heads are out of reach, especially at tempo. Saves wasting time, IMO.

Goals and aspirations are good.

Yeah Doug is my favourite Steel player after listening to his albums and videos his clean articulation and speed is second to none. Buddy is a close second but I find I hear more repeated licks whereas Doug just blazes every single fret and open string.

But I have to admit Emmons has that flow that sounds so easy to listen to.

I was looking at that video just yesterday as well. LOL

Great player.
