We’ll I’m back into the swing of things. My schedule has been taken up a notch and I’m trying to get some practice in early in the day just in case other things get busy later in the day. On top of that the NEC auditions are coming up soon and I need to be thoroughly prepared for the ear tests. Right now, I’m working on Wes’ Unit 7 & a Wolfgang Muthspiel solo. They both are using very "guitaristic" techniques and shapes when improvising. These two solos are providing a lot of valuable information for me. I’m also beginning to hear solos in general a differently. My ears are getting stronger and it’s easier and more beneficial to transcribe than it was even 6 months ago.
I’m not going to keep track of my daily ET tests as I previously had mentioned. I’m going to try to the test more sporadic throughout the day and try to keep an overall balance of the material that I’m studying. It doesn’t make sense for me took look at the scores or set up a system right now.
