    Awesome shot at this one Sct113. I really enjoyed this one. I wish I could play as fast and clean.

    your on the right track.

    The key is knowing the fret board, knowing what your capable of and try to make that feel easy, work towards fluidity, its ok to make mistakes, and make sure you're heart is in it. Then advance as needed.

    Something that a teacher told me once long ago....if you make a mistake...do it twice and it will sound like its supposed to be there....but what it will also do is alert you as to what not to do next time...

    First excellent post by all so far. Enjoyed them all. Backing track definitely would fit in in a Bourne movie, or while a caper is being pulled off.

    I set out to make a video, but I sliced open my ring finger on the last lick while doing this tester so never got it finished. :) I need to tame it down a tad anyhows.
    as far as I got. Cam corder was sitting right on top the de-humidifier. cool fan noise.

    Fast driven tunes,, behind the wheel of my brother'n'laws 64 440 six pack Hemi Road Runner,, getting ready to shift into 3rd gear,, before stomping the pedal to the floor.
    Don't know why I thought this was relevant, maybe cause everyone is smoking the BT.

    Hi guys looks like some interesting stuff above looking forward to checking 'em all out.

    Got a bit carried away with this one there's 5 or 6 tracks with all sorts of noises....

    https://soundcloud.com/hippy-club/mlp-july-2017

    Edit a week later and still no new tunes? C'mon crew this one has a lot more life in it....

    To bide the time for anyone who's interested the above tracks including the nylon strings were all the frankenstrat fitted with a Roland GK3 divided pickup I recently installed in it run through a 13 pin lead into a Boss GP-10 and from there to Reaper. Still fiddling around with the GP-10 but so far pretty happy with what it can do. Heaps of effects, synth stuff, midi, bass, 6 & 12 string guitar, plenty of guitar and amp models and any open tuning at the flick of a switch.... Not sure how it would go in a live situation but for home and studio use it is pretty amazing.

    All things pass//
