The past two weekends we have spent recording a new record of some kind. It’s very short. While we record, various thoughts go through my head. Most of them involving the feeling that I have lost skill in my guitar playing. There was a point where I really practiced my guitar. I had books of scales, I had lesson plans on my walls that I would write out and run though on a nightly basis. Once I learned 20 some odd songs in a weekend to do a tour with a band. The past two weekends have left me feeling inadequate at something I once was very good at. It’s a good thing I also sing in this band, because hearing your own voice on tape is a real confidence booster.
