I woke up this morning to find i could PLAY. And I dont mean just noodle around on the guitar, i mean really play. I just Ripped through As I lay dying's An Ocean Between Us, Megadeth's Devils island, and I can now play most of the Tornado of souls solo. Wow...Its like something just clicked, i was fast solo wise before, but now im also precise.
i just dont get it. Oh well, Dont look a gift horse in the mouth! wink.gif

Normally when these moments happen to me I wake up laugh.gif

tongue.gif Congrats mate anyway. It's always strange how some days you can play nothing and then others you can play really quickly and cleanly. I love playing Devil's Island smile.gif
