That's why we have studio effects. You can make guitar falling down a set of stairs sound good.
I hear Mexico is nice this time of year.

Yeah; Filter it , Flange it, add a bit of delay and stick it through a harmonizer and compressor.

You forgot the AutoTune™.
Someone should put that in their signature…

Another one of those things that will make you play better , playing your electric unplugged or on the clean channel all the time. You have to be more precise and work harder without the cloak of distortion.

I was saving that for the dance Mix. You could also Gate it or Plate it.

I have been on this kick now that I'm playing again after taking a few months off.

I got back in the groove in no time but I found myself wanting more out of my playing because my taste has changed a bit too.

So, I've been hooked on learning the timing, placement and emotion behind master note placers like Gilmour and Prince. I've been learning a lot of their solos and licks. It's been kicking my ass but I think it's where I want to go with my playing.

I've been trying to wrap my head around "creating" sound and space.

in doing so, I've grown to hate my playing.
Trust me, I'm a medical professional.

That is part of playing. When I went to Berklee my speed greatly diminished. I was playing new scales and actually thinking about what I was playing instead of ripping through patterns. I just went through the same thing again in reinventing my technique with this new teacher. Once you are comfortable with your new techniques and riffs your playing will bust out to a new level. Have patience it takes time but is worth it. And yes it can be frustrating as hell. 

As far as pushing myself goes I just learnt Mood For a Day. I have it down I just need to speed it up. I sit down with the metronome and increase the speed as I get it clean at a certain tempo. I also started the organ into to Boston's Foreplay on guitar. No pun intended before (if) I get it down its going to be a long time.
