Nice job.

Spend some time just practicing getting those bends to pitch. Seriously, just focus on practicing in-tune bends. That alone will make you sound 10X better.

Work on phrasing. Take a short phrase and try altering the rhythm and way you play the notes (picking, legato, sliding up to a note, sliding down to a note, and bends).

Thank you! I'm not actually using an amazing amp. I like to believe tone comes the fingers (but it really does...hahaha). I personally like its tone though but obviously I'd prefer a marshall tube or laney tube or something. Its a Crate FXT65. Its not in the picture. Its to the left of my ground fan. hahaha.


Thanks again!
Oh, and your video was cool too man! I cant wait to do a gig! Doing my talent show on the 28th. Playing Eruption...Classic.

Matches with my practicing habits. I got a good deal on the JEM as well. From a guy on this forum. $1200 USD.
What did you think of the video?
