    I usually have a 60+ minute commute BUT since I'm working from home as soon as I log out I've been spending what would've been commute time plugged in and jamming to my ipod. Not learning anything in particular, just enjoying making some noise. It's gonna be tough to go back to the regular grind...

    I found myself tinkering with this today;

    “Live, Loud, Alive” by Loudness was one of my favorite underground metal albums in the ‘80s. Sorta fun to go back and revisit it.

    Started tweaking some songs I thought I knew by dissecting YouTube performances. Other than that, a couple Robben Ford songs; Worried life blues, and Rose of Sharon.

    I'm getting down Voodoo Child just like SRV did it, then Freebird note-for-note, Hot Rod Lincoln exactly like Bill Kirchen, then the William Tell Overture just like Glen Campbell.
    Ha, had you going.

    Jane, Jefferson Starship. My brother wanted me to learn it (lead parts too) and play it for him over videoconference. We used to have the 45 record when we were kids and played it to death.

    Well, I got my iRig recording thing fixed up, then promptly smashed my index finger between a couple of frames I was using to hold down some tarps. Blood blister and a nasty cut right next to each other. So that cut off learning that Queen song for a minute.

    I guess I can still build speakers, though, but damn that right index finger smarts!

    Brushing off Cliffs of Dover. have not played it in over 10 years. It was the track i used to keep my technique tight.

    Night & Day by Joe Pass is next if i can find my old tab for it. I have a lovely McIlroy A45 i'd like to play it on.

    I’ve been focusing on the note E and it’s kicking my ass.

    My wife and I are working on some new songs for our acoustic duet for when we can finally gig again.

    Personally, I am relearning and completely learning some Phil Keaggy songs that I kind of used to know, but never learned all the way through. "In the Light of Common Day" is the first one I'm tackling.

    Well, apparently, my fingers wanted me to learn to play “Limelight” and “Crazy Train” this a.m.
    Gotta go with the flow, I guess.
    Yesterday, it was “Working Man” and “What You’re Doing”.

    that tune had a cool solo.
    And not a terrible album as I recall.
    (Pre-“we built this city” ugh...)
    Reminded me of the solo from “Baker Street” for some reason.

    For once, I feel like it's "me" time and not band time, so I am learning Blackbird and finally learned the solo to The Wind Cries Mary. I also brushed up on some Tom Petty songs that I had not had time to play in a long, long time.

    I’m trying to learn more rockabilly stuff. Working on That’s All Right Mama at the moment, but hoping to progress into Stray Cats/Reverend Horton Heat territory.
