WHAT IS YOUR STYLE?I heard a famous musician say, "Your style is based on your limitations." Others might say it's based on your influences. I believe every musician has something different to offer, and can express him or herself uniquely on their instrument. Here's some ideas on what you might add to your style:
I found that I love chords, love syncopation, love dynamics, variation, and clever things. These are the things I wanted to be able to play, and somehow, over the years, maybe I developed a way of playing that is somewhat unique. My favorite players have changed over the years: Tony Rice, Stevie Ray Vaughan, David Grier, Wes Montgomery when I was young. Later, I came to appreciate ragtime guitarists, flamenco players, and Jazz pianists.
Play, and keep playing! You'll keep getting better all the time if you keep playing music.
