Beware the ‘Hot Blooded Woman’

Going through my old 2014 music hard drive stuff today. Old stuff, 2014? Geez, tis, twas, only a few years ago. (feels like 10 years) Back in 2000 when the oldies bought their first computer (my first time playing with one) I never thought I’d ever try and play music, let alone jam (on fresh bread, no butter thanks) with people in Italy, Japan, the USA, etc …

As a boy, he learnt by listening to guitar greats such as Chet Atkins and Les Paul. I’ve been trying his listening technique for 30 years … and I’m still having trouble doing it. I’d do it during the day, but who does it during the day? Do you? It’s better at…
