Here is the video of Dr. Lefkowitz and myself playing at my work. We did a 2nd take of this one because one of my favorite nurses of all time Bev and my favorite anesthesiologist Les missed the 1st one!
I now have a fonder respect for blues guitarist! I find the rhythms to play are difficult to master. The loosie goosie timing takes a bit of getting use to. The coming in and out of time signatures at unfamiliar times are something that I have not tried before. I am more accustomed to straight forward rhythms so I must appear to come off as a spastic rhythm guitarist, ha!
Just a question here for all you musicians out there, have you had certain challenges when you try to play the blues properly when your own style of playing is completely different for the blues? I just want to find out if it is just me who has the problem adapting to this unique genre or is it just me.
Like most guitar players I love attempting different forms of music to broaden my musical horizons and repertoire. It is also an advantage to having a number of tricks in my hand bag to pull out when needed.
This genre of music will take me a while to get a proper handle on it but I feel that I am up for the task. So a practicing I a go!
So sit back and have a laugh at my expense! Cheers!
Update – sorry had to remove the video as the doctor I work with made it private. Darn!
Keep on Jammin’
