Thoughts?

I'd like to do it 'exactly' as it sounds.

I've tried to do this on a resonator tuned in open D. I've also done it in standard tuning in Bm-A-D. I can approximate and get the spirit. But

I'm wondering if there is a different tuning that I'm missing. I don't think open D is correct.

I figured it out.

Open D. Ring finger on the 9th fret and walk down to the 7th on the top 3 strings and then partial D on 5th fret and then open.

There is also a lesson there. If I run into a block and put it down for a couple days for some reason my brain will silently continue working on the problem in the background.

Then suddenly while I'm not even thinking about it consciously it pops up like a CNN alert:

"Hey Larry--remember that problem you were thinking of?...Well, I've been working it out and here is the solution..."

And I talk back to my brain, "Hey thanks but I really didn't expect you to go to the trouble...it wasn't that big of a deal..but thanks."

It makes me wonder if my brain is like my computer ie. stuff going on back there in the cache memory that is slowing me down.

A good buddy of mine from college suggested every 20 years we should take a hit of acid and clear that stuff out.

I'm skeptical.

I don't know about the LSD reference subsequent to this, but the part about stuff going on in the background is true. Some generation will truly learn to harness what the brain can really do (if we don't blow ourselves up first).

But taking small breaks is a great thing during learning, and after doing a lot of GOOD reps, the knowledge further sinks in as you sleep. So the next morning you won't be able to pick up where you left off after the last rep, but you'll be WAY ahead of yesterday's starting point. And those gains are permanent (unless you take like 10 years off or something.)

I don't think my brain lets anything go. The other day the quadratic equation popped in my head and "I got it".

It's essentially a description of how variables close in on their point of origin...hence the solution is always zero.

That was.. what 10th grade and just now my mind decides. "okay...it's time to work on it."

Crap. I needed it back then. I don't need it so much now.
