Hi all! My pseudonym is Jamal and I have been playing guitar for about 6 years, but I have never taken my playing very seriously. It has been a great pastime and I have improved a lot, but I think it's time to dig deep and really take my playing to the next level!
My main goals for this year are to improve my lead playing, learn basic music theory, and develop my own sound. What I'm after is if Hank Williams played lead for Slayer. Evil Country!!! Right now I'm achieving it by learning country licks and either playing them in a harmonic minor scale or just throwing chromatic notes in there. I can play around a bit, but I'll consider the task done when I can improv in this sound.
