Lactic Acid in my Brain

More of the same today. It’s kinda like a good workout day. The next day isn’t usually as good. I think I’m still trying to process what I was doing yesterday. I came up with a funner way to improvise over changes using the loopstation. It reminds me of the duets when Tim Miller and I sit down and play. The chords are sparse and the rhythm is dynamic. It gives me more to play off when I’m improvising. I’m listening and responding to the backing track rather than just trying to hear where I am. That’s kind of a profound realization. No wonder I was getting frustrated with my exercises.
I want to make sure I’m spending some time tomorrow listening to players. I’ve been a little to experiential lately.
