Wind of Change - The Scorpions - update 16March - post 41

Hi Community Guitar Friends…these are a couple of clips to share my progress on this arrangement, two more verses to add to the previous melodic initial part of the song (previous video)…and…eh…what :exploding_head: …ok…this is the first time for me mixing the melody with some strumming :see_no_evil: loads of fun and feeling like winning at the lottery at any right individual picked note :money_mouth_face: :joy:
Can’t wait to read what your thoughts are on this…it’s taking a lot of “work” indeed :sweat_smile: Thanks in advance for checking this out!


You mixed those two together seamlessly Silva. It was a wonderful bit of playing. This one is coming along nicely.

That sounds fabulous, Silvia! You are getting more and more confident with this piece. Mixing the strumming with the individual notes adds another positiv develpoment. Nice, to see, that you are getting more familiar with strumming. Congrats, it’s amazing!

Sounding really good Silvia and nice to see you adding different elements. Picking, strumming and NOW percussion. I raise my hat to you and look forward to when you have the whole song recorded. Very impressive so far :+1:

Hi Silvia,
Nice work… Seems hard to do and you’re beyond my skills on this one! :slight_smile:

All the practice is coming together nicely for you.

A bit dark on the vid - do you alway play at midnight? - LOL

Next time you might want to try getting away from the window light with the cam and shooting the wall as your backdrop?

All the best,

Thank you all so much for listening and your interest and support in this crazy project of mine!

Toby, Nicole…

I’m surely aiming to “the whole thing”, but I’m not really sure I’ll be able to achieve it…whatever will be I’m already very much happy with my development so far, as being able to play these little chuncks is already way more than what I could expect from myself. I will

and see where it wil lead! Thanks Jeff!

Andrea while I was reading this I was thinking it perfectly describes my path, and that this arrangement is the natural outcome of it…melody first then the rhythm :see_no_evil: what should I do if I am like this…:innocent::wink:

Thanks so much to you all, your words of support mean really a lot to me. I love sharing with you my little progress step by step, as well as getting to know about your guitar journeys…we are all so different, someone is in blues, someone in rock, metal, pop…someone plays live, someone is great at video production…being among you is such an enriching experience and a privilege too! Now that you said “Yes, it’s good” it’s time to get to…the chorus!


:joy::joy::joy: it was before dinner to tell the truth…and I was so taken into the playing that I forgot to turn the light on! :woman_facepalming:

Now…this is only a work-in-progress video…I’m sure you’ll be indulgent :wink::sweat_smile:

Thank you so much for taking the time to listen and write back!

All the best to you as well!

Very impressive, Silvia. Sounding smooth and confident! Love your determination and the progress you’re making.

Thank you Dave, your feedback is very much appreciated! I’m starting today to work on the chorus and I’m taking your words as my mantra “determination
and (slow) progress”…I’m just adding “slow” to be more at ease with myself :blush:
