I've been saying for the past several years that I want to take lessons. I just learned chords from song books and chord books when I was a teen and never tried to push myself. I only played easy acoustic strumming stuff. When I started playing electric I learned a lot but still don't know much. I spend most of my "practice" time trying to memorize chord progressions and lyrics. I can memorize the basic chords and lyrics to just about any song, but what I really want to be able to do is jump in and rock out and solo in a song I've never heard or played before; improvisation, I guess you would say. I do play in a band (for now) that plays real, paying gigs, and that was always a "bucket list" thing for me. Now it's time to add something else to the list.
