Well, here I go.
I think I posted a song I did in my 1st post to this forum. It was a audio only and a mix of me and done over several tracks. This time it’s just me and my guitar on video so ya know it’s really me.
There’s at least one first for me here.
I don’t sing and play at the same time. This one I did that. We’ll see how that goes. It’s also my first video of me playing that I’ve posted on the www.
This is ‘Cowgirl In The Sand’. I’ve always liked this song so decided to give it a try. Actually, I’m kinda a CSNY freak. I love their music. The song I posted in my 1st post here ‘Our House’. Amazing I’d pick this one to do. Not.
I’ve been working on it for a couple of weeks now on and off. So it’s not so polished. In other words, a couple mistakes. Like one is I can’t seem to even read words off of a page. Go figure. + at least one chord change miss. Then there’s the individual notes that I missed picking them, specially on the into, darn. Oh well, this is just a 1st try. Maybe I’ll get better in the future. And honestly, if I took the time to make many takes, I likely would get it like I wanted, but not this time.
I wanted to get this posted today as I like to do my recording when the wife ain’t here, just me controlling the surrounding environment. ie, the wife ain’t got the tv on.
I also did watch Justin’s video of how to play this song. And I did get ideas from him. Whether or not I did what he said to do remains to be seen.
Anyways, this was this mornings take.
Any criticism is welcome. I’m wanting to get to be a better player and have no one to bounce any ideas off of at all.
Sorry, I don’t know how to get the youtube pic in there, but I do have the link, so that should get ya to my video.
Oh, this was recorded on my telephone. My guitar is a Epiphone Masterbuilt DR-500MCE/NA. I love this guitar. Got it used last year and I’ve been loving it ever since. I got lucky on this purchase. Just put round two of new strings on it a couple of weeks ago.
