    Yes, I can try that. But I will do it later this week. Because the credit card linked to my paypal is blocked. It’s the third time my bank does that when they think there is fraude… but it was me trying to order some cheap stuff on aliexpress X)

    Aren’t banks a pain in the ass? I understand entirely! Mine does that all the time and it’s annoying.

    It’s been a busy semester when it comes to school. With finals this week, I’m looking to be more active and hopefully can get some original videos on here as well in the next couple of weeks.

    Keep up your head up Jak and everyone else who this post applies to. We are all on this together, no matter what the skill level. There are not many communities where someone who just picked up a guitar and wants to start learning is valued as much as someone who has been playing their entire life. That’s one of my favorite parts about this place.

    Let me know on Thursday if you still need the other half jak.

    I love the enthusiasm you bring here. Helped me in lots of different ways too. Yourr constructive criticism is tops. Im always down to hear a demo of yours.. infact if you gave me a sneak peak id be probably blown away. Id have to say my stuff is 11 years now in the making. Im in the same boat as you. Debating constantly on showing the world my stuff. I mean its there just no one really sees or knows its there. Its scary to think what theyd say. Is it really as good as you feel yourself when you listen to it. Have those moments a lot. Then i hit play…

    And it blows me away. Cause theres a reason you make it sound that way. Its meant to be like that. Whether they get it.. does it really matter as long as you get it. Legit have been waiting so patiently for your stuff. And feel free to post journey videos here. Id love to see what you two have in store. Honestly? Fuck the covers.. like anyone could post an a7x cover.. but honestly i skip a lot of those videos to see the improvs or origional ones. I love seeing the solos but to see someone write something of their own.. big or small. My improv videos started what.. 30 45 seconds? Now i feel like i could play all afternoon. Which i usually do. My camera is terrible and the first 2 usually fail Soundwise cause of it.

    In closing. I personally think of you as a friend first.. fellow synner 2nd. I think youd be surprised to see im probably not the only one who feels that way here.

    Calvin your response is beyond heart touching. I love how you Said I think of you as a friend 1st in a fellow Synner 2nd. He also had a lot of good advice in there. It’s very true what you say about covers verses originals. And I’m really glad to know that I have been such a big help to you. Every time you post up a video I’ve been mind blown at how far you’ve come since the last one. You should definitely be proud of your work. Any donations will still be gladly accepted because alternately this will help us make the full entire album. We wanted to get at least a $1,000 to truly help get the song master to its fullest potential and pay for the drummer. But luckily we found out we’re not gonna need that much. Like I’ve been saying to some other people come up we are hoping that showing what we can do will help Garner more interest to help fund an entire album. So if you ever feel inclined to donate again it would be extremely appreciated. The $1000 will help us on another song for sure. And I will definitely give everyone who donated a sneak peek the closer it gets!

    The best part is theres still so much more to learn too. The progress will never stop. I think doing a couple songs is a good idea. Get some interest .. maybe a sponsor or 2 will jump on.

    You know we’re always here for you Jak. Seeing everyone’s support for one another really builds my confidence in posting my first riff (btw…coming soon to a screen near you). I may not be where I want to be yet, but I’m much further along than where I was 1 month ago. It’s the journey that counts anyway.

    Enough about me…I’d love to see your journey videos. I would like to donate and help you out, but I have a family to support and a job that doesn’t pay as well as they could. I’ll try throw some money your way if things begin to look up. You still have my full support and can’t wait to hear your originals.

    Is that going to be the one that you were nominated for? If so that is so incredibly exciting! I don’t care how good it is. I eagerly look forward to it! And I really don’t want anybody to feel obligated to donate. I know that times are hard for everybody and especially during the holiday season. I am Just thankful that I’ve got such great support here

    Yes mam’am. I haven’t forgotten. Just been going over it in my head. Not going to ruin the surprise so keep an eye on the horizon.

    @jak and anyone else interested – I recorded a 35 minute video tonight walking through creating a short, quick multitrack clip. It came out terrible, but the concepts are there to glean. I’ll get it shared as soon as it’s finished uploading and processing to YouTube.

    I know this is the least I could do and I would happily dontate more than 5 cents to your go fund me if I had an actual bank account in my control, but my goodness Jak you have done so much for this school and me as well. I just want to say thanks cause I know that has to be hard and frustrating for you. And I haven’t listened to any of your songs! I knew you had a band but I didn’t know what it was called. You’ll have to drop me a song title or something if you already have some out!

    Jak this really is difficult for you to create something that loves and struggled for it and not have so much visibility and for sure will be an incredible material and people continue to ask for things that are not so much their goal
    Even more so when it comes to this musical branch where people always want what is already known (all bands that ask for tutorials)
    What I want to say is first do not be discouraged it is a difficult walk but YOU CAN!
    And post what you want, we all want to see
    Hugs from Brazil
    Sorry if the text is incomprehensible.

    Jesus Christ. I have no words to say. I actually felt sad after reading this, and kinda guilty too. I can totally understand the frustration behind this. I guess my father says it absolutely right: Be your own hero. He helps so many people I know but expects nothing from others just because he knows: almost no one will help him back. I am actually feeling guilty. How many times I have got encouragement from people in my life but forgot to congratulate/encourage on their own stuff. Maybe I forgot to congratulate you on victories as well. I am extremely sorry for this.
    You are actually right Jak. It does not hurt to be a little selfish in today’s world. The ratio of how much you give and how much you will get back will never be equal. But I know there are people in this school and outside who will always be there to encourage you and celebrate your victories.
    Do your own thing and be as powerful as you can.
    Good Luck.
