Hey guys,
I just joined the forum and want to start my time as an active member with a poll.
Up is a question that I actually ask myself a lot, and even though I know the answer I rarely adapt my practicing schedule to it.

Personally, I know I suck most at comping, but still I spend most of my time practicing playing lead... anyway, here goes the poll!
Cheers, Jake

Just noticed this poll. BTW Welcome Jake.

I picked reading because I've never been fluent. Rhythmic notation no problem but multiple note staffing I fumble. Years ago I even purposely took some piano to improve and that didn't work because anything *new* I had to pick out, once I had been through it I played it from memory. Confused

I couldn't vote in this poll because there was no selection labeled "All of the above." :cry:

Definitely performing with others/communication for me. It's just what I've had the least amount of experience doing, but that's been changing. I get to do maybe a session a week and sometimes I might go as much as a few months with no sessions. Gig like once a month or less, but it's all moving up!

Double ditto. But, if we didn't love it, we wouldn't be here. It's all good.
