Evening Practice on Tuesday, February 28, 2017

I had such an ineffective, falling-asleep OPS session today that I took the time to do some inside practice while the President delivered his speech to Congress. I worked a lot on ‘Fireball Mail,’ which is in the final stages of finger-ation, and on the first phrase of ‘Salt Creek,’ which includes that funky pull-off-in-the-middle-of-an-F-chord bit. It’s not so hard. I think the trick is to put the ring finger down onto the fourth string quickly so that it’s there when you pull off and do the rest of the square roll. The entire session is below upon uploading.
