Wanted y'all's thoughts. I've been playing since I was 14 (I'm 40 now), with twenty of those years being in live bands.
I have really to tried to step up my playing over the last 5 years by learning to play the changes (I play in a country band, but love lots of types of music). I've...

Update: went to the local park basketball court the other day and just did big figure eights across the court to practice turning and pushing while my daughter rode her scooter. Lots of fun! My biggest challenge is learning to lean into those turns. I may get new bearings at some point, also...
