Thought I should get this posted before I overthink myself. One take so there a few booboos but not so bad I wouldn't post it. Tried recording myself the first couple of times I played through it so I wouldn't lose any magic.

Jesus!!!

Really? You were ready to give up playing not 6 months ago? Now I'm not so sure I want to jam.... I'm gonna sound like the kid in guitar center still trying to learn "smoke on the water" which, in reality, I still can't play....LOL

I really dug the "live" feel. I closed my eyes and felt like I was front row at the Backroom bar on Rush street. Awesome!

Re: Jemsite Guitar Challenge April '15: POST YOUR ENTRIES HERE!

Thanks Ryc, that means a ton!!

I have been playing on and off for 20+ years and I'm half as good as Craig and he is half my age. It's all relative to the amount of work and time we are willing to put in. Life gets in the way sometimes but I am learning as I get older that I am who I am and this is me. I'm like one of those old curmudgeons who learns to do one thing well and goes with it. I'm just getting better at that one thing.

There are a lot of guys that, through these challenges, we have seen take huge leaps and bounds. It's as much fun watching everyone else progress as it is to hear myself do the same.

We HAVE to jam!!!!!!!! Hafta!!!!!!! I'm 2 1/2 hours away. My wife even asked me when we were gonna jam.

Rush St and Division??? Is Aragon Ballroom still around? Park West?

Jeff

Re: Jemsite Guitar Challenge April '15: POST YOUR ENTRIES HERE!

Any other late entries coming in? Let me know if it needs to stay open a bit longer... otherwise Frank or I will close it up.

Unfortunately I just couldn't seem to get anything together for this track. Usually I am pretty early on these. I'd get a good idea or two and expand on them... but it never happened. Been so busy that playing time has been hard to come by lately. Hopefully I'll get it together for next month!

Ian, I like it!!! It's kind of difficult to improve for 4+ minutes, I totally get it. On my take, I got to something like 3 1/2 mins and noticed I was that far with a halfway decent take so I just continued on.

You took a different approach and it worked well, great playing. I love how everyone did actually.

Re: Jemsite Guitar Challenge April '15: POST YOUR ENTRIES HERE!

Ok, so I thought my yesterday's attempt doesn't sound as I would like it to at all... Decided to try more, put on some wah-ite socks (for better wah range, obviously) and filmed other 2 tries blah blah blah:

edit: moved to SoundCloud

Thanks a lot, loved everyones playing as well! I was checking time couple times too, but I guess we shouldn't, better just relax, concentrate on the moment and keep going

I posted up the April poll, in the usual poll section.

Ian, I wasn't sure which one you wanted for the final poll, but assumed the "2nd attempt" on Soundcloud. If you would like me to change it, just let me know! By the way... I really liked the first one you put on youtube. Very creative with the guitar on the stand and the keyboard too. You look like you are having fun with it!

Re: Jemsite Guitar Challenge April '15: POST YOUR ENTRIES HERE!

It doesn't matter really, but lets put the 1st vid in the poll as the reference, there's still some interesting moments. Thanks a lot!

edit: the worst part is I rewatched couple vids that I considered "bad takes" and they're so much better and shreddy than the ones uploaded... by the time I filmed that vid I was just so tired, but whatevs, there's always next time.
