U2 guitarist The Edge says he hates jamming
"First of all, that's not how I work as a guitar player. I compose using the instrument, I don't really sit down and play for the sake of playing stuff.
"So the idea of jamming - endless, directionless noodling around some nondescript chord progression - I really find very boring."
