This one is not really ready to share, but I decided if I don’t my work week will be so busy I will never post it. This song was my favorite when it was brand new (1991?) and I shared it with my wife in 2022 and she said it was as if I wrote the song just for her. This 12 string looks shiny and new, because I was scared of playing it for a while. I am still sloppy with the chords as you can hear, but I’ll get better. Does anyone remember this song or Firehouse? This one is supposed to be a full arpeggio, but not able to play it yet.
Thanks everyone for the nice comments. In reality my performance of this song needs a lot of improvement. You know how it goes, we are all a work in progress. I’m glad it brought back good memories at least. Have a great day.
Nice one Jeff and good to keep recording. Good to see you playing and singing it’s a difficult trick. A suggestions try to get the guitar in the video so that we can see how you’re playing. People can then better offer you tips and advice.
Thanks for the tips. Yes, the real version has two guitars. There is a guy known as “Party Marty” that did an acoustic lesson for this. His videos don’t show you much as far as technique, but gives you ideas. I will check out your link as well.
I still have a lot of work to do to be performance ready (i.e complex strumming or solos), I hope my videos don’t sound awful, just basic versions of playing and singing until I improve.
For your other comment, I bought a microphone based on someone here’s recommendation. I just need to hook it up and start standing while playing and not be so lazy sitting lol.
Thanks Stefan. I am going to start standing while playing per your last comment. I am hoping to think of something fun for the next song and spend more time improving it before posting. These two were just spontaneous as an escape for the stress from my work day lol.
