It's been a year since I started posting on IG to track my progress on guitar and I was watching some old posts. One of them was this 1st solo of Fade to black. This is a video comparing one year ago with the last one I posted here.
I want to say THANK YOU to all of you that have been helping here, because the progress shown here is because of you guys :)
I'm accepting the challenge of @[513:@Calvin Phillips] and posting my rhythm again. Papa Gates noted that my other video was slightly out of time, I was rushing a little bit and gave some advice. So, again, thank you very much @[11:@Brian Haner Sr.] for your advice. This time I tried to really get the groove and let the notes breathe. And thanks again too to @[42619:@Aileé Guerra Aréizaga] for doing this.
I've been practicing the song and somehow wanted to make it my own and made 2 versions, one faster more like the actual song and a slower one. Which one does sound better to you, the slower or the faster version? I can't figure out which one I like best. BTW excuse the background sound, it was windy and also some construction works going on nearby.
Some weeks ago I asked about easy but a bit challenging solos to help me improve my technique. Some students suggested some cool stuff to start working.
I made a list and Californication is the first one of a pretty long list (by suggestion of @[7809:@Jesse Salmons] - thanks my friend 👍)
I’ll be learning the full songs, not only the solos.
I started working on Californication a few days ago and there’s still some mistakes. The idea is posting again in a few days and check my progress.
This is my very first video ever playing guitar. I had barely started learning a month before. I am posting it here as a reference to check my progress since then. I was sooo tight!...and also I had a huge phobia to see myself on a video, lol
