1. go to the video page of the song you’re working on (the page that has the video of me playing the song (or if you downloaded the full mix mp3 of my version)
2. then get your sheet music and follow along.
3. make sure you understand the intro count-in, number of intro bars etc. and also the “road map” which means any repeats, 1st ending, 2nd ending. if you don’t understand these then it’s very easy to get lost.
also, how well are you reading thru and playing the song without the backing track?
we should be fairly confident playing it thru first before doing it with the band.
Sound is improving. I moved the mike near the holes and above the bell, Maybe 2/3 up the bore. And I adjusted the gain on the preamp. and the trim. Added the Silk. Still working on it. and tomorrow the High Pass filter. So little by little I’ll lose the bucket sound.
