@Jd mon frer parisienne :)...This kind of "crise" I'm experiencing now is only for acoustic blues...I'll never stop play the guitar because I like it too much but first of all because if I don't do I could feel bad..my good humour is strongly related to the notes coming from the guitar and the blues is the one that works more than others in this. On the other side I'm playin only acoustic blues for about 7 years...only this...It's a kind of error. And by the way I've have improved a lot thanks to the lessons of Corey. Anyway I need, even to become a better blues player, to experience others genre of music and bring the right hand tecnique back to the blues. What makes it really strange is that it  came suddenly. I think I'm goin to pratice really basic flamenco things and brazialian music. I love bossanova. this genres of music has more or less a lot of similarities. It's gonna be also usefull. And off course Reggae too. I love Reggae.

But I can't leave Sonic Junction. I'm addicted to this project and Corey's lesson! :)))

@Corey..it's strange as it happened suddenly.Thinking better about it, I'm almost seven years playin only acoustic blues with no brakes and it's funny because it sounds like the seventh year's crise of marriage. I'm listening to some good old eritrean music (Tewelde Redda for ex) and I'd like to know more of Bossa Nova and Samba like for ex Seu Jorge. And in the end of july Semi and me will go to Toscana to a festival called Mama Africa where there are a lot of classes and between even N'Goni. I think I'm goin to attend it. I'm sure you will be happy about it! :)

thanks for your words!

@Corey...thanks for the lesson. I think I need a short brake from playin acoustic blues because I feel like I'm having a kind of overdose. I need to play other things. I'll post only some videos for the open mic but I need to stop, recharge batteries and restart very soon. Don't know if it happened to you too..maybe yes...I think it's normal. Anyway It's just to say that I'm still here and watch the lessons and take notes but I need some brake from studyin new tunes! 

Thanks

Alex
