Let's start with the excuses.
There are certain things that I do that I take a particular pride in the amount of time spent organizing and executing. This is not one of them.
Before I tell you my tale and show you my video I will say, the light was bad, the sound was adjusted incorrectly and I did not try to make this look or sound pro in anyway. The back ground music is over modulated and the mix is horrible.
You may have noticed that I talk about being unemployed a lot. Well If you have never been unemployed and a closet type "A" personalty like myself, then you would not understand what it is like when, since the age of 17 you have worked 14 hours a day, a minimum of 13 days every 2 weeks and at the age of 39 find yourself with no job and a lot of extra time. Eventually, you run out of things to do. (I was walking thru the house tightening up all of the knobs today. Dressers, doors, cabinets, sinks you name it...it's tight.)
Anyway, my wife found out, after 8 years of knowing me, that I play guitar. She is encouraging me to pass the time by playing again. I have decided to take her up on it.
Now here comes the somewhat interesting part. I have mostly played the blues or things that stem heavily from the blues IE; Zeppelin, The Who, Sabbath, Clapton, Jeff Beck etc. I have decided that since I am going to play again, I am going to change my style and learn to shred or play things more in the vein of Steve Via, Joe Satriani, Yngwie Malmsteen. You may not like there music but like it or not, these guys can play.
So what I put forward today is an example of how I play currently.
I am setting a goal of one year for my ability to shred decently to start to emerge.
Once again, I know the video is crappy.
