I started playing at the age of 47 and found that I actually have talent. Next month I plan to celebrate my 47th birthday for the 5th time. I am able to jam with about anything (both chrom and diatonic)but haven't taken lessons. I haven't read music since before Kennedy was President. Mainly, I am interested in suggestions from pros on how they practice. Is there value to warming up/practicing scales on the chrom? Should I stick to learning to play blues/jazz and other genre tunes that I like? I imagine that learning to read music again can't hurt. My goal is to be able to play in a decent blues band that might have local gigs and to be able to sit in at clubs with open mic/jam sessions while I travel on biz and pleasure.
Will trade for infomation on middle age fitness, Paris and cats.
