Songs

MGMT – Kids [Solo]

Was trying to practice every bar separately. It went pretty well, but I didn’t have much time to finish the practice, so the whole thing will be played tomorrow.

Summary

The solo is really tricky. Hopefully with the new approach I’ll be able to play in consistently-ish tomorrow.
