The last few studio sessions has made me aware of the importance of “Guitar Control”.
Frustrating rounds of blundering takes was all about not being able to be in the song groove consistently. Technique may seem like a mechanical thing, but having consistent playing control is an ability to be acquired.
Knowing your chord patterns and the ability to accurately hit the note on tempo is the physical aspect of playing. However, translating your guitar playing based on what you feel in your heart and what you hear in your head is simply brain-to-hand ability in your playing.
Much to learn and improve.
