Here is AEnema by Tool. Please note the song has EXPLICIT LYRICS.
Time to ROCK! . One my favorite Tool songs I used to play as a righty, it has some cool techniques and rhythm to work on. I have a few flubs but overall I think it’s ok. My single earphone was very low so it was hard to keep on cue with the backing track. Feedback always welcome!
I am coming up on 1 year in February as a new lefty. I for sure didn’t think I could play this song a year ago so feeling pretty happy (even though I look angry in the video )
Duuuuude! You are an inspiration! This is amazing progress in one year after the switch. I’m always excited when I see one of you vids pop up, one of the last ones had me practicing Tool for the rest of the day!
This is one of my favourite songs of theirs and certainly looks challenging to commit all those different phrases to memory. Exceptionally well done.
Given your vast experience, I don’t feel there is anything I could offer in terms of advice, therefore I will again just express my congratulations on what you have achieved over the past 12 months and can’t wait to see more!
Thank you Jeff, I appreciate your comments. Glad to inspire some Tool playing!
Aenema is a great track to learn all the way through, even the solo. Adam Jones actually plays the solo with a slide but it can be done without as in my vid. Also some cool hammering techniques in the beginning and verses. Give it a go!
Thank you David. I was a pretty solid intermediate-early advanced player as a righty with over 40-years of playing. I could confidently play a lot of Zeppelin, Hendrix, as well as more modern stuff pretty decently. However, I had many holes and bad techniques ingrained in my overall musicianship as I was completely self-taught.
I may never be as “good” as my former self, but I feel I will set a much more solid foundation and techniques wherever my lefty journey takes me
Thank you Lieven. Funny I am actually left-handed but learned as a righty in my youth. Grade school teachers attempted to convert me to right-handed for a couple years which made me somewhat ambidextrous. For sure my brain is confused and screwy through all of this
