Woooo! Just about nailed Tender Surrender finally!

Here's my first outing playing Tender Surrender by Steve Vai, I've wanted to learn this for ages and more or less got it now. Still a couple of licks in there i need to get properly right but I'm fairly happy with it now. What do you reckon?

Your technical ability is good, however as far as "nailing it" goes you're a good ways off. Also, you were acting quite goofy which really makes one more critical of the discrepancies.

You didn't nail it dude & you are really goofy. Sounds like your guitar was possibly out of tune or you just hit the wrong notes on some spots. Doing the samethings that Steve Vai does in his Alien Love Secrets video with the hand on the hair and licking the finger and touching the strings at the end dude. Come on.

Good job, dude. There are some spots that sound off but very good overall.

Wink Re: Woooo! Just about nailed Tender Surrender finally!

haha well a mixed bag of responses but thanks for all the feedback. I guess by "nailed" it I meant, I'd reached a plateau in my learning on this one. Yeah with more practice perhaps I could improve it. Although saying that, I do have some tab for this and note that Steve plays the one handed bit on frets 3 to 7 but my fingers simply don't stretch that far with any degree of control so I just couldn't do it that way ever I don't think!

Anyways, thanks for all the positive encouragement.

Good effort man. Keep working at it, you'll clean it up.

And I'm happy to see you feeling the music - that is after all what it's supposed to be about.
