I’m eternally thankful for Justin Sandercoe, his staff (and volunteers, if any) and all who support the mission of teaching the world to play guitar. It’s unbelievable I was able to learn this instrument using instructional videos, YouTube videos and tablature. JustinGuitar’s Beginner’s Course should be the front page of the Internet, in my personal opinion. What a golden example of using the Internet for good. Thank you to everyone who shares their knowledge and makes the guitar community so wonderful. The world isn’t as angry and competitive as the television/media wants us to believe.
I’ve been writing songs and finally got to uploading them to Soundcloud. I am only an average singer and the recordings are amateurish, but I’m extremely proud of them.
Hey Zack, welcome to the community. What you’ve done is awesome, keep up the great effort. i heartily agree with your comments acknowledging the difference Justin has made in many of our musical journeys. He’s done a stellar example of paying it forward. Look forward to hearing more from you.
I don’t know who told you that your singing is mediocre or your song average because this is an AMAZING piece for someone who started playing only 4 or 5 years ago. Absolutely adore the first one, you should definitely upload them to Spotify if you can!
Please keep it up, you can become an amazing artist with your skills and hard work!
I have not really gotten strong feedback either way thus far other than a handful saying they really like it, so I appreciate your notes. I will need to explore uploading to Spotify. I am starting to share my music and playing at open mics so hopefully I will meet other musicians and collaborate.
Really great stuff Zack and you definitely should be proud. I am also into writing my own songs but am not at your level. I love listening to originals and haven’t got all the way through all your songs yet but loving everything I have heard so far! Your playing and vocals are really good and very enjoyable to listen to. When it comes to vocals I always go back to an interview I watched with Noel Gallagher a while back, where he commented that nobody can sing your songs as well as you, as nobody else can bring the same emotion to something you wrote!
