Felt like playing a bit of punk tonight, and also want to get into a regular recording groove to track my progress - and remove the recording anxiety.
So here’s a cover of Basket Case. No singing - can’t sing and play this one. Just warmed up a bit, hit record and played it. Also no backing track playing in my ear! A few mistakes in there but I’m pretty happy with it as a one take.
I suggest as a next action you post up a personal introduction in #community-hub:introduce-yourself, sharing a little personal and guitar background, your musical aspirations and current focus within JustinGuitar.
That was great JK I think you did really well, was able to recognize the song easily without any other instruments and you got me into the singing mood as well haha. Great tone as well, overall you did it justice!
In terms of keeping up with recordings weekly - don’t put too much pressure on yourself. I much more prefer quality over quantity personally all the best
(Ok, doing one post to reply like the forum is suggesting)
@Notter It’s a fun one with a bit more complexity to it than it seems, Justin’s lesson on it is great, really in depth.
@adi_mrok Your recordings are such high quality they’re like performances, something I hope to get to one day. I’m kind of enjoying regular recording if only to document progress. I might not share them all .
Too kind JK, looking at how far you have gone in such a short time you will most likely go ahead a lot quicker in your journey than you expect! And I am sure you will be able to play same exact stuff (and more!) as I do
Crank up the volume so the whole neighborhood can hear it!
That’s the only way to play Green Day.
All kidding aside, great job. A lot of people say Green Day songs are easy. But they can be hard with lots of chords changes up and down the neck, fast tempo, palm muting, etc. So kudos for taking this on and posting!
Incredible, especially for a one take. The palm muted strumming made me think I need to try out this tune, it seems like it would require some stamina in that hand and that’s going to take some practice.
Thanks for the feedback, glad you liked it Dale. Yep, it’s a great song to learn palm muting. Was a bit of an endurance exercise when I started learning it, a lot easier now that I’m familiar with it and I’ve put in the practice time.
