Funny thing

No, no embarrassing mp3's here. I've just tried recording myself onto my camcorder and it turns out my playing isn't as crappy as I thought! In fact I kinda liked some of the runs. And my amp sounds a lot better than what I hear when I play (and it does sound good when I play, too). It's funny how the brain gets so concentrated on playing that it "reduces the priority" on hearing, so I don't really hear what I play.

I think I'll be recording myself quite often now. That $700 camcorder has to be put to some good use. Maybe I'll learn to hear myself when I play, too.

post some embarassing videos then
its great seeing other people play, i find watching their picking hand very interesting, so many different ways of doing the same thing, and each way effective.

I've found it a good tool to pick out flaws or quirks in my playing.
Kind of odd seeing your fingers from the viewer's perspective.

Thats quite a good idea actually.
And I could see how that would work. Because for the first time, you get to see where your going wrong by watching yourself back.
Plus the critisicms from people on here would help.
