Piece of crap No. 2

So I previously posted a video of myself playing my guitar and I am going to do it again.

Why. I guess I like torture but it is an easy way to see how I progress.

Last time I wrote of how I was trying to change my style of playing, so after a couple weeks of practice I will admit, I am like a baseball player trying to learn a new swing or a hockey forward trying to learn a new shot, it's uncomfortable but I'll see if I can push thru it. According to those in the know, I will improve.

This time I tried to do a variation on a theme. In other words, come up with a melody to fit the music, expand on that melody, stay in theme. I tried to do something a little more progressive than bluesy and failed an all counts.

For what it's worth, I am going to keep with the training. I figure I should give it an honest 6 months.

This time the light is better and for those who may care, the guitar is a 91 Fender American fitted wit a 59 reissue at the neck and a Jeff Beck stacked at the bridge. Unfortunately the amp is a piece of junk Peavy Trans-Tube so you cant really hear it.

No effects were used besides the gain on the amp.

Jeez, whatever, you sound great. You have to know that. What are you, in your 20's, right? 6 months? You've got your whole life to play. I think you should keep posting these up, they're really nice to listen to. We'll let you know if you suck.
