Thanks for the kind words about the last recording I posted here
I need some honest criticism and help with this one;
Be as brutal as you like. I seem to struggle with faster stuff.
When I play ballads, I just play what comes into my head, and it is normally pretty melodic, I am in my comfort zone with anything below about 120 bpm. With faster tunes I tend to rely on licks and trills, and this is when I get in a rut.
In this tune, I play one scale and that is about it.
To move up to the next level I need to do some serious study, learn changes, and become less reliant on my ear. I listen very heavily to jazz, of all types, so the "listen and learn" principle does not work for me at this speed.
I will re-record this after a few weeks, taking your suggestions into account, so please be free with your comments, and please don't worry about offending me, I am not happy with this one!
