I talked to a friend today about taking guitar lessons. I've got three months until the tour (and two weeks until the studio) and I've got a lot of room to grow. It's been a LONG time since I studied guitar. I've got some very specific things I want to work on (timing and lead playing) and it will be a challenge to find the time to make it to the next level, but I'm leaning towards trying to make it work.
There is no try, only do.
