I am a very 70's style progressive style player, with gifts in improvisation, rhythm, and lead guitar. When I play with other people I listen to the music being created as "layers", and I try to find good contrasts with the different parts and instruments we're using.
Being in the suburbs of good ol' Wisconsin, it's hard to find ANY committed players that actually have the natural born gift of music. Instead I play with people who struggle with even the fundamentals of guitar, but ignore it and push forward with absolutely no skill improvement. It's hard to play Major League ball in the Minors.
