best tips for guitarist learning tunes on the fly at a session
Guitarists — which is better — spending time trying to learn as many tunes as possible or spending time learning a technique to learn any tune on the fly?
I really want to be able to sit in on a trad session, I play in double dropped D .I would say I have decent ear for music but realistically do the backing guitarist have to know the tune ? the way i look at it is if you dont know where the tune is going how can you effectively provide backing ? So my goal is treat the top 2 strings on my guitar like a bass guitar and work out the bass line of the tune in the A and B part first time round on the fly. Any guitarists out there able to do this
