George Olsen: Hey steve. Um well, listen, thanks for that email. Uh I'm really looking forward to, you know, spending some time with you tomorrow. Um I love all your stuff, by the way. Everything on guitar, zoom. I just feel like I can't, there's so much content that I'm I'm a little bit kind of in the weeds, I guess. Um I'm really looking forward to kind of really developing a routine. So my whole career of of guitar has been about a year. Um I took guitar lessons when I was in college, but that was, you know, back in the late seventies, early eighties. Um and I never really expanded on it. I've wanted to play guitar my whole life. I've been to hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of concerts. Um The seventies guy love, you know, Pink Floyd's my all time, you know, David Gilmour, I love Zeppelin, I love steely dan, I love the jazzy tones of steely dan. Um but if I could emulate somebody it would be, it would be David Gilmour. Um But I just, music has always been Uh a passion of mine, I love listening to it. Um and I'm so happy to be on this journey right now with my guitar. Like I said, I've been playing for about a year. Um I jam with some guys with just recently started, they have a list of about 18 songs that I'm learning. So I haven't been able to really spend a lot of time working on other things except for these songs, which I'm getting kind of through. Um I'm really, you know, solo in melodic soloing is something that I'm really, really excited about in the future. Um I'm working, say probably about an hour to two every single day on my guitar. A lot of my practice right now is I spend about 15 to 20 minutes on open chords, 15 to 20 minutes on bar chords, 15 minutes on scales or so. Um and then the rest of the time is just working on those songs. Um I haven't really delved much into music theory. I kinda have studied my fret board a little bit, I hope this isn't too long winded. I just kind of want to give you, you know, kind of enough of a background so that you can, we can kinda delve right in tomorrow. Um I'm just really excited, you know, like I said, I love guitar, zoom. I, I love all the content. I, you know, I love everything that you've, you've kind of brought me to at this point. I just want to make sure that if I'm gonna spend an hour to two a day developing, you know, and working on my journey, you know, to where it leads me, I'm really excited about it and I'm gonna put in the effort every day, which I'm, I've been doing, I just need to know the right stuff. Um so yeah, that's it. Um looking forward to tomorrow and, and once again, I appreciate all that you do and I'll see you tomorrow at noontime Eastern time. Thanks so much steve, Take care.
