Having a super long jam with friends

Or learning a very technical/ challenging song?


Imo, while i did have an awesome experience learning "Always with me, always with you", it does not beat the feeling after jamming with your good friends (especially when your good! )

honestly, i love jamming.
but
when you work on a song for hours and hours then finally get it down, thats pretty satisfying as well.

Its something to do when some random kid goes "play a song... "

ive got a concert at the end of the week.

we're just doing a big jam session to start it out with just to make sure everything sounds right.

I say super long jam. IMO it would probably help you more, musically, to have a nice long jam than learning 1 song. Sure the 1 song might have technical elements you would have to work on for awhile but still...

Really, a song is really only rewarding is you can take tecniques used in it and fit it into jamming, without just copying licks from it

It depends for me.

Most of my jam sessions kill me, i get so bored because I'll throw out a few cool riffs, a few crap riffs, and by the end of the jam I've done forgotten the cool ones and don't really feel like playing anymore. Then after that when you come back to try to play it again the next day, week, whenever, the riffs don't seem to work out...

I get frustrated with jamming, not so much with learning stuff.
