I would say number two and four apply to my banjo picking the last several days. I am in the middle of what could be a good breakthrough for me personally - mainly tickering around with mixolodian and dorian - but I find myself playing the scales over and over rather than improvising anything that sounds pleasing to my ear. I'm sure everybody can relate to a funk like this - -one day everything sounds great and the next day it's back to square one. I would welcome any fresh ideas or new ways of approaching the modes if anybody feels like pulling me out of this hole or can relate to feeling like a two month old loaf of bread.
