I gained many lessons and experiences from playing in a rock band in Athens, GA. In a town full of great musicians, most of whom I knew at the time, one in particular had a profound impression of my musicianship. In the video below you will see my friend and former band mate David Cardello. He now lives in Arizona but when we lived just a few houses away he gave me free lessons on music theory, playing styles, and beyond. No he just has to do it via the internet for he is busy in Arizona trying to solve our countries energy crisis.
If a friend offers to teach you a skill, don’t hesitate. The more skills we posses the better off we are. In this particular case it was a skill of music appreciation and healthy practice habits. Thanks Dave. Keep delving.
