Well, I have been working on this for a while, with the intention of trying to play it for an OM, however tried playing it live for a couple of workmates the other day and it was a bit of a mess to fair!
So, I’ve decided to abandon that idea for now and just record a progress snapshot. This is a good representation of where I am at, warts and all. I did two full run throughs on separate guitars (took me a few goes with each to get something acceptable) and added an acoustic as backing for the intro (yes you heard that right @DavidP, an ACOUSTIC! I added it just for you ).
There are many things I am happy about… transitioning between tones whilst maintaining momentum… having stamina to get through the heavy palm muted end section… remembering all the various progressions!
Things I know I need to work on… timing (as always! Made it very difficult for me to properly align the videos )… left/right hand accuracy/sync… hammer ons/pull offs… bends (although there was only one that I attempted in this)… and everything else I haven’t realised is a problem yet?!
But overall I’m happy to be where I’m at and am looking forward to coming back to this down the track to improve on it further.
Thanks for checking this out. Comments/feedback/criticism very welcome
