Sounds more Stevie Ray than Jimi..........:-k .....With a Gary Moore sense of class, yet also with a hint of old school Eric,

and of course, that unmistakable Marshall wall of sound...........The refusal to clutter up the piece with shredded notes

is not only refreshing, but is a testament to the absolute control and skill of the player...........The careful hints of "Santana"

are evident, without being visually distracting, thus lending an overall stunning reality check of single note mind boggling

memory jarring authenticity that is usually reserved for when one is listening to any current living, or non living, legend........

You know what.. if that was played in key it would have sounded GREAT!!

and I mean that, for your age you show real promise with your expressions like your bending and vibrato..

keep it up I say..

(just please do our ears a favour and study up on your scales so you can play the right key ;))

[thumbup] well im just saying it as it is.. the kids only 13 (is that right?) and is doing something other than sitting and playing computer games all day which in itself is commendable.. Plus im helping my brother in law play whos 42 hes been playing for about two and a half years now and wishes he could bend a note like that so I have a good perspective on what to expect from people who are still in the early stages of learning.. also I was told once that sometimes if you have nothing positive to say its best not to say anything at all ;)

Also we all have to start somehwhere, both the Beatles and Jimi Hendrix were all turned down by the major record labels before they made it big... so why rag on people for at least trying. I feel sorry for people who dont play music, they are missing out as far as im concerned ;) but each to their own.

Most guys here care about the blues! I listen to a lot of KISS (Ace Frehley and Bruce Kulick solo works also apply), Rush, Pat Travers, Fastway, Rainbow, anything George Lynch related, Yngwie, The Drills, Ten Years After (you should really check them out), etc, and I never hear much about those particular bands posted around here. There is always Beatles, Stones, Zep, Sabbath, Hendrix, Clapton (I think he is overrated but that is just my opinion.), Beck, Van Halen, Bloomfield, and stuff like that. The last time someone posted something about KISS in the Lounge is when someone posted a vid of Rocket Ride in a thread about wah usage. Maybe I should post some Ace vids, and some Rush songs you don't hear every day. I know there is a few Rushians on this forum so lets all come together and have a Rush Day!
"Let me tell you my story....I got a man-size predicament, and it's a big one...and it goes like this...yeah..."

Take a Gibson Les Paul, throw a DiMarzio Super Distortion in it, plug it into a Marshall amp and turn it up to 10. It's pretty much a no brainer!- Ace ****in' Frehley
I don't see why we have to go through all the bullshit of high school just to be musicians- Alex Lifeson
It doesn't matter how fast you can play or how many chords you know, if you can't play the blues, go the **** home you ain't worth nothin'- Richie Scarlet
Critics love Elvis Costello because they all look like him- David Lee Roth

Ace is God- Dimebag Darrell (RIP. 1966-2004)
Like is too strong a word...I don't really like anybody- Chris DeNicola (I love Road Rants)
You can keep the drugs, I'll take the sex and the rock n' roll- Paul Stanley
Thanks..I like to play...- Garth Algar (AKA Dana Carvey)

And most importantly....**** OFF ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME! (Gene Simmons, Eddie Trunk, and anyone who matters)

Fender guy 1 , I don't care what they say to me, I'm 55 years old , with 4 grandkids , and 1 great grand daughter, but this is get'in hard to watch these guy's batter you , the epiphone forum is les foregiving , just a thought .

For the record, my reply (first below the top) wasn't intended as battering at all. Just honest commentary. When I said "Cool", I meant it. Though I didn't express it as articulately as Rabs, my point was essentially the same. The feeling and physical playing of the strings was right on, and well done.

The playing any note in any spot OTOH was hard to listen to, but as Rabs suggested, comes simply from a lack of knowledge. The young man certainly has the potential to be a good guitarist if he'll put in the time to gain some knowledge to go along with what the feeling has him playing. Learn to play in a key, any key, and I do think that'd be a really well done piece of playing. And quite listenable (enough to silence most all who do bust on the young man).
Regards, T Bone.

Who exactly is being hard on FG1? Have I missed something? I don't see anyone "battering" him. As a matter of fact, all I have seen are compliments and advice that will help him out.
Have cut back on my equipment do to circumstance. Just my #1 Gibson Les Paul Standard just now. No amps, no pedals.
