  1. Excellent playing @NeilES335 and a lovely tone too. A very beautiful song.😎👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
  2. Hello Everyone, This months Recording Challenge topic was chosen by Wim VD1 🤩"A little special"☘️ Wim said "The challenge is to record a song that has something special. "Special" could be the use of a specific technique like bends, hamer-ons or pull-offs, slides, octaves or harmonics. It could also be the use of some chords that go beyond major or minor triads like sevenths, 2 chords, sus chords, chords with color tones or anything special you can come up with."It could also be the use of some chords that go beyond major or minor triads like sevenths, 2 chords, sus chords, chords with color tones or anything special you can come up with." So get recording everyone and give us something to listen to! Best wishes Mandy 1. NeilES335 playing "Mon Cheri Amour"
  3. This is a lady who I have only just discovered Vicki Genfan playing "Blow out that Flame"
  4. Thank you @Six String you are right, it does come back to one of the main practice rules, "focus on the parts that you find most difficult " I will focus on the barres and the strum pattern. Thank you for your advice and encouragement. It is heaps of fun playing rock songs and I am going to put in the work and try and get to that special place when it starts to flow.
  5. Wow Greg, that was superb. I am not sure I have ever heard that one before, I loved it instantly. Brilliantly done!😎👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
  6. Thank you Wim, I will watch the video and work at it. Playing rock is heaps of fun and I want to join in! 🤩
  7. Thank you Neil, you are very kind. Thank you Greg, I am looking forward to hearing your version of it. It is a great song.
  8. Thank you @Fretless, I see what you are doing in your photograph and I will endeavour to hold my guitar in that position. It would be great to be able to keep my wrist straight as I know that a bent wrist can lead to injuries. I will work on it. Thank you!
  9. Here is my entry. This was quite a challenge for me as this video has a few things that I have not done in a one take song before. The first is the power chords themselves and the second is playing while standing up. I find I have a tendency to bend my wrist too much when sitting down playing power chords so I did it standing to hopefully protect my arthritic wrist. The other challenge was the palm muting. Any tips to help me improve my technique would be great. My apologies Mr Addams or Mr Scott for murdering their song "Summer of 69". I would so love to be able to ROCK! https://youtu.be/6CKF0UB1zfQ p.s. my wrist still looks very bent in the video
  10. Wow Wim, that is absolutely amazing, it sounds so professional. Great playing and great tone. As @NeilES335 said it is awesome!😎👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
  11. This months topic was chosen by @ak0693 He said "I was thinking, a challenge based on the recent power chords live lesson. Making progressions using those chords or rock songs, something like that on based off on the recent lesson" 😎So lets post songs/music using power chords.🎯🎸This is a great opportunity to put Steve's lessons into practice. Or..........If you are not a power chord player then you can post a non power chord version of a song (like an acoustic version or jazzy version etc of a rock song). The winner will be chosen by a random picker and will get to choose the next months theme. This is not about being the best it is all about recording and sharing. 1. Wim VD1 playing "You shook me" 2. Nutty1 playing "Summer of 69" https://youtu.be/6CKF0UB1zfQ 3. gotto playing "Glycerine"
  12. @NeilES335 I enter the names of those who have posted a song into an online Random Picker I use this one Random Picker. I have just done it for the May Challenge and have sent a message to the winner. The prize is exactly as @Wim VD1 says INSTANT FAME plus............... the winner gets to choose the theme for the next Challenge. So now we wait to find out what theme will be chosen. Drum roll please 🥁!! Neil, please post the song even if it does not exactly fit, I am not all that strict really.🎸😁
  13. Wow @rockinrickard that was wonderful. A very beautiful song superbly played and sang. It is my goal to be able to write, sing and play like that. You are a real inspiration. I thank you for sharing it with us and I look forward to the next video that you post!😎👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
  14. Great job @gotto, that is quite a complex mix! I love Cheryl Crow too!😎👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
