Inspiring words by Geddy Lee, “Music is all about wanting to be better”…

Yes, Geddy Lee known as the bassist, singer and keyboardist of Rush really said that. He said that in an interview somewhere, the original quote is…

“For me, there is a lot of room for improvement and there are a lot of things I would like to be better at. Music is all about wanting to be better at it. My diet, my regime, the whole life I have on the road has always got that little bit of stress because I’m always afraid I’m going to get a cold.” – Geddy Lee

When you’re a musician or a singer, it is always about wanting to be better. No matter the skill level you’re at… whether you’re a beginner, intermediate or an advanced musician, you gotta keep pushing forward and keep getting better at what you do.

I’m always trying to improve at both my guitar playing and singing. I don’t necessarily care to become a virtuoso but I do want to become more technically advanced at guitar playing and learn to play a little more professionally. I just want to become a way better guitar player. I’m working very hard and have gotten better some, I’ll say.

Trying to become a better lead and rhythm guitarist. A lot of guitarist like to pick one of those but I like to do both. If you’re going to be a guitar player, might as well be both lead and rhythm. I do want to become a good lead guitarist like my heroes…. for example Jimmy Page, Angus Young, Joe Satriani, Hendrix, SRV, Clapton, etc….. but I’m not rushing it.

I do want to become a more technically skilled guitarist and I’m working hard to get there. If you want it, gotta practice with a metronome a lot more and I have. Understand timing and rhythm and you can play just about anything.

I want to be able to play badass and tight rock n’ roll. My goal is to be able to play more than just basic open chords and power chords. I’m tired of being that kind of guitar player and now I want to branch out and expand my skills even more. No more being stuck in a rut.
