No.


Well, technically it could be done, but only in the same way that you could change a cat into a hamburger. It's an unpleasant process, and nobody is happy with the result.

Past the improving skills, past the improvising, past all the 'you need this to be better'....

JAMMING IS PLAIN FUN.

jamming with someone you know well who also plays guitar is awsome, you bounce ideas off eachother and really help eachother out
#10
it encourages you to practice. Im a bit of a masochist. I like playing with someone whose better than me. it makes you practice harder.

Jamming is generally making up a chord structure, and swapping leads and rhythm parts with everyone else playing. So you have to play rhythm as well and playing leads - if you are a solo hog nobody will want to play with you.
And no, Guitar Hero will not help. Even on expert. Really.

These days I don't have patience for anything then jamming, so.. yes.
It's a really good therapy and it helps being a guitarist, a real one.

I sincerely hope one day you look back at this post and realize how ignorant you're being about the concept of getting high.

Jamming is actively creating music...

The creativity skills you're honing when you jam are some of the most important skills in your musical arsenal.

Quote by TheWatchtower
why else play?


yes


The joy of creating music with others is a kind of empathy, the highest ecstasy attainable (with or without the help of chemicals), more so because of the deeper (brainstem?) level it inhabits. Sydney Smith called it "the only cheap and unpunished rapture upon earth." (But he's best known for his recipe for salad dressing, so ...)


Jamming is a great term to because it covers so much - don't be restricted to any format (specifically, I solo, you all back me up ... ugh - but also, whichever instruments you have available - you can make music with them). As long as you are creating music, it is good. Make sure though, that you try as much as possible to jam with players so much better than you are it scares you into playing at a level you've never found before. Really listen to the people you're playing with, and try as hard as you can to make them sound good - you'll sound great as a result. Lose yourself in the music (but don't get lost - count!).

why do you ask? is it something your looking for justification in avoiding?

I think what is "really important" varies from person to person.

If you like "jamming", and want to "jam".... then "jamming" often will likely lead to better "jamming".


If you don't like "jamming", why bother, and why ask about it?
shred is gaudy music
