If last year was a time for generalization and overview, this year is a time for detail. I didn't do much w/ Fats last week (sadly), but I'm kinda ok with it, because I did a lot of details work with some other music I had to work on. It falls into the category of "I wish I had more of a career", so I'm ok with that.
Back to my own quixotic Wishes this week, though: Ray Charles/Hard Times.
My friend is coming over to sing & record on Thursday night. (Rolls up shirtsleeves.) I work well with deadlines.
Today's mission: play the song in all 12 keys - sans riffs/fills, just to get really comfortable with the progression and possible chord voicings.
