Got really fed up with my playing the other day. I was trying to make a video where I improvised over this backing track and did five attempts in total. Halfway through the fifth try I got really frustrated with myself. I found myself playing very boring lines that didn’t really say anything at all. When I get frustrated playing guitar, I tend to take it out on the guitar in the form of playing very heavy handed. It doesn’t always work in my favor, but this was one instance where it produced some usable tones. Here’s the result: Ever had something like this happen to you? Where a certain feeling, be it anger or sadness, helped you up your game a little bit?
