    After a long series of bends, a genie appears and grants you 3 musical wishes


    what would those wishes be?



    Me

    I'll tell you later. My genie hasn't popped out yet.
    maybe I'll try some pedal steel bends.

    I wish I had a better singing voice, my guitar voice is ok.

    I wish I could play over tunes like Giant Steps with ease. Even though it's not my favorite style to play on.
    I would like to have that ability.

    I wish my improv melodies were always new and inventive and hip as hell.


    The singing thing could be a problem :(

    Unlimited practice time. Man, that's all I need right there. Give the rest of the wishes to charity.

    Easy...

    1) 'Perfect' right hand technique (including hybrid picking)...leaving me with only one hand to worry about
    2) Immediate vision as to what the notes of any particular chord are on the fretboard, and a mental map of what the intervals sound like.
    3) Constant inspiration, and that feeling of 'connectedness' with both the instrument, the music, and the other players.

    Not too much to ask is it???

    Cheers

    Wish 1, the devil apairs and agree's to take my soul in exchange for all the mojo there ever was and will be.

    Wish 2, the devil comes back the hour of my death and freely gives my soul back.

    Wish 3, the man upstairs then forgives everything I did in between.

    :D

    Sing better...a lot better.

    Play piano really well...George shearing, Oscar Peterson, and Boogie Woogie style stuff

    Play Fingerstyle chord melody guitar with grace and ease.

    Frankly any of these would make me so happy.


    ps-
    I'd also love to be able to play pedal steel better.

    My main wish would be to be satisfied with my playing, and not be so hard on myself.

    It's ok to ask the genie for a great voice.

    The genie has to obey. Live it up.

    1. The death of Rap "music".....if you can even call Rap music.

    2. A complete and total understand of music theory.

    3. The patience to deal with the stupidity of drummers and the arrogance of keyboard players.

    As a matter of fact #3 is going into my sig. :D
