I didn't think you could play a solo without scales, from my understanding. Guess I was wrong.
I don't know too much about scales either, but that sounds to me like it's more of a "this sounds good" sorta thing. Like he plays most of it on one or two strings. Anyway, it's nothing like the normal "scale" stuff you'd find. At least I don't think so.

Good God, so it was. I am not awake today.

Considering he plays half the solo on high E and the other half on low E and A ... yeah, that's not your typical solo.

Plus besides tiredness, my mind's a bit elsewhere at the moment. My mother's in hospital today to have some operation done. It's just a routine procedure and she'll be well enough to work tomorrow, but you always hear these horror stories of medical fuck-ups so I'm a bit nervous about it all and waiting for her to call to say it all went well. Probably won't hear anything for a few hours - she woke me up about 2 hours ago to let me know she was about to leave for hospital.

And it's amazingly easy to play.

That reminds me of a couple movies I want to see, actually.... I'm sure she'll be fine, though.

I hope everything works out.

Picking up on The Wall again ...

Track 25 might be the worst thing ever.

So with all the conversation about desserts, I thought I'd share what I had for dessert: Strawberries with that blackberry syrup out of the bottle that they make italian sodas with, and then lightly coated in sugar.

Which is that? The Trial? I can't remember the tracklisting.

Yeah, The Trial.

This whole album just feels like they played to the concept instead of creating the songs first. I didn't like it much.
