    Sadly that's how it always is when you hear yourself play.

    The story of my life--at least when I record stuff...
    I've been a pilgrim on this earth, since the day of my birth, I'm a long way from my home.

    Yeah because in a recording every single little intonation imperfection or missed chord glares at you

    Ys--sometimes at first you get into the thrill of it--but later you start noticing things--sometimes you hear them right away--and yet there are songs where mistakes become iconic...

    The good news is generally those little things don't come out in performance because people are experiencing the whole performance, not scrutinizing for for mistakes

    True

    One of the others was suggesting doing some Bob Marley--because reggae timing is so much simpler than blues timing!
    Okay that last part isn't something he said--it was something I added to his suggestion...

    I'd probably have to do a bit or practicing before I could play reggae. I'm not used to those upstrokes in the music we play

    Blues feels more natural to me than reggae--although I am sure there are those who feel more natural with reggae--

    Yeah we all gravitate to certain styles. I would certainly favour blues over reggae. Maybe one of these days we will play some ska
