Re: Weird thing about memorization

I've been memorising a lot of fingerstyle songs lately, and the key for me is enthusiasm. If you really like the song, the meaning,a part of the song, a riff, or the technical aspect of playing a particular song, then I believe you will learn it faster. I can learn a fingerstyle song in a very short...

One of Us and Mad World

The tab I have is printed out and I don't remember where from. I've recorded these two songs out tonight after work. I decided the quicker the better after I was playing it really well with beautiful dynamics earlier in the night, but take after take after take wore me down til the versions I had we...

Re: California Dreaming, Toy Story (Finger picking)

Thanks for listening! I believe the muting is my poor attempt at the harmonics on the thicker strings. I hadn't really practiced the intro when I recorded this out, so lots to practice still. "You've got a friend" was just for fun as my little boy loves Toy Story. I'm working on the bridge and outro...

One of Us and Mad World

Hi all. I've been playing about with a few more fingerpicking songs, they're far from perfect, but I hope you enjoy them. I'd appreciate any tips or criticisms.

Re: Strumming While Standing

I'm in the same boat as you. I play sitting down all the time and feel very odd when standing up. My fingering feels more natural but its not as accurate, and my strumming is even more uneven than usual. The reason is down to the changing angle, and probably a different resting point for your arm on...

Re: Final Fantasy X - To Zanarkand

Sounded great to me :D I'm kinda wishing I used fingerpicks, but I like the feel of my fingers on the string. Have you gone through this dilemna? Your tone sounded good to me though. I don't know the song, so it might just be phrasing, but it looked like you were stressing on the end third. I might ...

Re: SO FRUSTRATED!

I got pretty frustrated too, still do in fact. But I decided fairly early that any progress was better than a frustrating brick wall. I learnt anything I could find to expand what I could play and practice when I picked up the guitar. I really want to shred some 80's solos, but I know I'm still way ...

Re: Good reasons to know the fret board

Its great when a little trickle of theory comes in to your playing. I've noticed I'm looking for easier ways to play difficult pieces, trying to switch things around to get the same effect. Its cool. Probably not as cool as a Squaresoft Guitar book though! I guess you enjoyed all the Final Fantasy m...

Sounds like you're having a blast whichever way you look at it. Love the God guarding the Temple with the geetar. They do say Aum is the sound of creation ;) Good luck, watch out for ferocious monkeys and such!

Re: New Travel Toy

I'm so envious of you visiting all those beautiful temples, its a dream to view the Angkor Wat complex. Do you like the Buddhist or Hindu belief system? I grew up in the UK with a very loose Christian background, but it was just a placeholder really. After studying the different religious systems fo...

Re: Disney Pirates

I found the tab from the author of the arrangement online, but its over-compicated from what is actuall played. It'll be something like 006500 instead of 000220 in a lot of places. I've manually altered his tab, which is strange I guess because now its 'my arrangement' lol. See Sunga Jung playing it...

Re: Another "Where do I go from here?" Thread

Sounds good mate, I hope you continue to make good progress. I'm still enjoying fingerpicking and have added Alone by Heart to my playlist. It was really easy to learn and only took a few hours practice to get it all down.
