School days, you can call it that! Now though, there is no other than yourself to enforce the schooling ;)
I try to approach those as exercises in breaking out of the usual patterns, that I would use jamming.. you know, all this stuff that just comes easy. And for a change I want to try to be musical, catch myself wherever I dive into too well known territory and try to find a way out. So I usually start with understanding the track, trying to think about how to contribute the best to it, what is going on, where which emotions go on and where they lead? I like this one a lot, as it wants you to respect other instruments and parts, it unwinds and then calms down, so there is no immediate shredding or high power solo.. you need to get there through some challenges and make the few seconds be rewarding for yourself and the listener. That is the challenge here and I love it :) The more times I try from different angles, the more it gets under your skin and in the end its no more about performing a solo, but finding the right place in the mix and telling a story

What is your take? :)
Did you mean what was my version? I think these are two passes I did on that

"09_29_01_2ndtake" - Pretty melodic playing Lawrence. Would make great SiFi Soundtrack material.

"09_29_1st_01phrase" - As previously noted, "Sweet use of delay Lawrence. Dig those bends too. Beautiful playing and melodic elements. Nice!
Those were the wrong songs huh? I’ve got a work out a better system for naming them. I transfer the tracks from my iPhone to my stereo looper and that has an SD card so every song is just named phrase.wav, no number, no nothing….That’s the way they come out when I pop the SD card into my old android phone because the iPhone won’t accept that. It’s archaic but it’s me!

No Lawrence, you're cool. I don't know why I thought it would be a good idea to use the SoundClick track names in my comment links; I just confused things, my bad. I should have posted them as:

Forgive me and sorry about that.

Just beautiful phrasing Lawrence, as usual. Tremendous technique, not One-Bear strong, but Two-Bear mighty, and a bear is something to be in awe of. The way you finish a phrase with that crying-voicing/technique is beautiful. Did I mention that I like your track?
That was such a nice compliment it actually drove me to be more complimentary to strangers I meet on the street and at the store... Did I mention that it picked up my spirits ha Thanks, and I'm just as open to criticism such as overplaying or being too loud or repetitious or whatever. It's of course not quite as nice to hear but can definitely be the best way to improve as a player
