    I spent the better part of last evening learning AC/DC "You shook me all night long". It's a fun one. Pretty much straight cowboy chords but sounds so gritty and good!

    I decided to learn "Yours is no Disgrace" by Yes over the weekend. Pretty ambitious considering my limited abilities. Brain-finger connection is being challenged.

    This is one of my favorites. I had learned it years ago on a friend's 12-string and it was one of the first things I re-learned when I bought my Squier last year

    Always loved the beginning riff to this tune, easy to play too.

    Ever since I saw the double drop D thread with the Martin I've been playing Black Water and Midnight Rider. Black Water is tough to sing. Tougher than I thought.

    As per Ableton or GarageBand loops, I want to take melodies I write this weekend and convert the notes to beats. Maybe if I like it, I will post it on YouTube and Instagram.

    What I start with in my head is often way different than the final product.

    Today, after a 90 minute session of drills, scales and chords, I pulled out my vintage Peter Frampton Comes Alive songbook that I bought back in 1976, and worked on Do You Feel Like We Do. No tab in those days. It used to baffle the **** out of me. It never sounded like the record.

    Until today. It's like the scales (no pun intended) have fallen from my eyes. There's a fancy online sheet music version, with TAB, that I worked on before. It was better than the original book, or so I thought. I wanted to keep playing but I needed to give my hands a break. I'm not 18 anymore, I can't play 5 hours in a row without stopping.
