  1. Hey guys, I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how much playing with others has helped me but I don’t have enough opportunities to do so. One thing I like to do when listening to the live lessons is when Aldrine starts playing a few chords or a riff to answer a question and I start jamming along or improvising based on what he was doing. The virtual jam you’re talking about sounds like a great idea! One suggestion I have is to add to the jam feel of it I think it would be nice if 2 or three of you can get on camera or at least on mic — you could also create breaks for us to practice a solo — maybe one of you takes a solo between verses, then the next time around tells us to while you keep strumming. That would create a feel a lot like the Bluegrass jam I go to here every month.
