Glad to be here. This is an awesome platform. Not sure which YT video got me to register but I’m really surprised how good it is - complete package for any level to get better.
This is my first performance for AVOYP. 3 months of preparation, close to 20 takes over the course of 2 days. It is not easy!
I learned the song from various YT lessons and wanted to finally get it on here before Christmas. The kids talking and yelling in the background is part of the training - keep locked in while performing This is Charles Brown’s “Please Come Home for Christmas.”
Hi and welcome to Community. Sounded really nice to me, I feel for you trying to perform near kids who have their own mayhem going in the background. Considering you did really well iron out few bits that were perhaps only a bit less smooth and you are all set for Christmas all the best.
Superb entry to AVOYP
Your kids provided wonderful accompaniment and learning to play with recording and distractions will stand you no end in the long run.
Give us a bit of background when you get the time, although judging by the ages that might be in a couple of years
Nicely done Nick. Perhaps the most impressive thing is how well behaved your daughter is! I know from experience when my grandchildren are near when I’m playing I can’t stop them swarming over me and grabbing the guitar. Not that I mind. I hope they retain that enthusiasm.
I like the B B King version of this song and didn’t Elvis do it? Sounds like he could have. Your version is a good take.
