Ok so I just started playing guitar this past summer, mainly working on building up speed/playing pentatonics up and down the neck and such.

and late last year, i think it was october, I convinced my roomate to get a guitar, he did. and he learned a few songs.

so today he was playing Collide by Howie Day. And I decided to figure out what key it was in, and attempted to improvise over it, playing strictly pentatonics.

I dont know how it happened but I just played whatever I felt like and it sounded awesome. at least it did while I was playing, I'm sure I wouldn't think so if I went back and heard a recording lol.

anyway this was probably the most gratifying expierience I've had playing the guitar,

It was awesome

anyone wanna reminisce (sp?) about the first time they were able to jam with someone?

When you hear something that you really like, take guitar and kill the beast.

haha yes I love those days me and my friends had jam sessions. Especially while I was in the band One For The Road a while back. We would play some simple rock n roll and improvise the solo. Me and my friend, who is also a guitar player, would trade back and forth solos, double stops, lots of riff arrangements and other fun things. Its nice having a drummer, now thats a better way to improvise a whole song.

Jamming is something that I really miss. When I first played guitar during my teens I was able to jam with some friends of mine - even had the stereotypical garage band. It was so much fun.

Now I just jam solo or sometimes my roommate will have a beat going in cubase and I lay some simple stuff down.
