    Pretty much an all Red Hot Chili Peppers 1000. Learned a lot of their songs as well as a few others. Hoping to learn more in the style of John Fruciante. Cancelled Zune, not sure where I'm going to go but started to buy a few CD's at the hospice and want to continue with that, as well as maybe Rhapsody. Starting summer so hoping to learn a lot and improve quite a bit over the next couple summer 1000's.

    Very productive 1000. Had computer crash so took a lot longer to get the 1000. Been learning a lot of songs as planned this 1000 and have improved a lot. Started working on Shoot to Thrill contest and am excited to enter. Been busy but still able to play and improve a good deal. Kinda have been all over the place music wise. Excited to learn even more songs and start learning some solos for them too.

    Didn't learn as much through Guitar Tricks as planned, but wrist has been much better this 1000 and have been noticing a big improvement. Been working on just learning songs. Some John Fogerty and Everlong and stuff like that. Started with KP and listening to a little bit of but not that hard. Hoping to learn a lot more songs this 1000.

    Fairly unproductive 1000, as acquired tendinitis or something like that fairly early on. Got replaced Epiphone. Again, pretty much all John Mayer. Not much to report, hoping to be better soon and learn and play more this 1000.

    Got Epiphone Les Paul at the very beginning of this 1000, playing has been improving as well. Been listening to pretty much nothing but John Mayer. Finger exercises have really improved speed and have been getting better at improv. Been learning some John Mayer songs and am very happy with the new slapping ability in songs like Heart of Life. Also as of the last few days have been doing a good job at learning the fretboard. Feel pretty confident that I should be able to know it expertly next 1000. Need to work on scales a bit, as well as learning dorian mode. Very happy with progress, again, ready for more.

    26 Sep 2009, 5:07

    Been working on learning songs this 1000. Learning riffs such as Back in Black and Layla. Also been working on playing some Lincoln Brewster tracks. Improv getting better but still need to work on it, learn the 5th position and minor scales, as well as getting comfortable outside of the key of G. Moved piano to back, learned basic chords and playing stuff like Hotel California. Improved a lot over the last week or so, can play a bit faster and songs that were out of range are now not so far. Happy with progress, ready for more.
  • Play #15000 - Dire Straits - "Lady Writer"

    27 Ago 2009, 20:29

    Dire Straits has become one of my favorite artists. Scales are getting easier, been improvising a lot, sounding okay. Started learning the notes on the neck. Rough estimate of G and C. Hoping to know them all or a good amount by next time. Really working on theory, even a little on piano with chord progression/construction. Listening to a lot of Pandora.

    2 Ago 2009, 8:55

    Working on theory a little bit. Finally understood scales and can play the first 3 positions of the major scale. Barre chords are actually still a small problem on the acoustic, especially E string minors. Hoping to learn a lot from Ipod camping. Been getting new artists from Pandora

    Got acoustic guitar this 1000, not 100% sure if it's what I want but probably. Been playing a lot, also playing Johnson again. Wouldn't mind a nice electric too, not both though. Getting better at barre chords on the acoustic but still needs some work and finger/callus strength. Working on fingerstyle a bit. too. Just need to keep practicing, getting better. Lots more Shinedown.
