Hi there,

following my previous post in this forum, I want to share now my second jam session experience. Apart from the fact that the first one was awful, in this one I still have the feeling that things havent gone so far much better. This time I think the two guys (drummer and bass) were a bit more liking my playing, although at some points I notice I had a bit of errors when playing. After the session, the guys didnt say about changing numbers or facebook or so, so I think this has been again something ocasionally. Do I really suck on guitar, when most of people I know (and others that dont know me) have always told me I play good?

My guitar teacher says I have improved a lot, even his wife told me the other day that I sounded very nice, then why is that when I play with others somehow I dont feel like they like my playing?

I remember I had a "audition" once with a bunch of bluesy old timers and I was like 25+ years younger than them and playing a strat and fucked up a bunch of notes during an SRV solo (you can't fake it on a strat ), I just remember looking up at the singer and his face was like he'd just eaten a lemon. I remember it like it was yesterday...that face, my hand cramping trying to play those fast set of notes.

So it could've been worse OP...

Rebel ScumRebel Scum I play strat and we played today "cold shot" and "pride and joy"... At some point in the solo part I was just improvising but I noticed I screwed up some notes... I can agree thats an awful feeling, did you get better with the following years mate?

lol, what a coincidence. I think it was Mary had a little lamb or Texas Flood I was playing. Yeah I got better in some ways, worse in others. If you ask me to play some SRV today I'd be real shit. But playing with people is a good way to get better. More so if they can keep time and have a tight rhythm section. No good playing with sloppy jalopies like ourselves lol.

But the wife?

...is

she fit?

playing with a band is completely different then playing by yourself to some recording. you're all feeding off each other. it's not just you keeping track of yourself
