Hooray - it was a miracle! Both babies asleep and at the same time! :D And so now I finally finally have a couple new songs 8) and OK to show my face again as a practicing student of guitar :roll:
Sorry, I don't aspire to STH for reasons explained elsewhere. Prob same for a lot of other RNR staples, they leave my hippie soul a little flat .... come on now, I CAN drive 55! :roll: My apologies for deeply wounding some of you, I know :twisted:

Hey Isabelle nice improvement :shock: wow and that's just the hairstyle lol, the guitar sounds great compared to when you started and also sounds great period ... some people I don't know why they are on the beginner's thred - j/k- so anyway here is my idea of a beginner song - Comfortably Numb:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0iYwvLcSEmQ

Chords are in the Easy Song section and some other comments but basically you get to see me do a REAL BARRE CHORD hahaha 8) or at least sort of. This song was another 'dare' from my teenager but thought I should share because it is SO EASY. Even for a song that every Guitar Hero thinks they can do better.

What if the Hokey Pokey IS what it's really all about?

~ why yes, I am available on youtube ~

as an offshoot to this thread what does anyone think of the idea of picking a song and then everyone videoing or recording themseves playing it, then posting it here?

I think that'd be a very good idea, and certainly a challenge for people like me!

I'm up for that, but remember some of us are REAL beginners, so please, pick EASY songs and give us LOTS of time to practise ;)

And Ken, now THIS is what a beginner looks like:

He'll be two in two weeks time :mrgreen:

I got mine three years ago for £35 ($70). I used it for the vid above. It has a built-in mic, can record vids and take stills. It's not great quality though and I normally use a digital camcorder for this.

Stella - one again, great job! I was wondering where you'd disappeared off to. Nice to have you back :)

I, of course, would only want to do real beginner's songs. it's all i can handle, too, even though i've been playing a while. one song which would be good to do if you like fingerpicking is Brain Damage. I already know it but it's very recognizable easy to learn and play. if you like chords Have you Ever Seen the Rain would be a good one. I'm open to suggestions. I can record until I get a web cam.

Cute kid, Isabelle.

For the record, I'm still around. I was on vacation for a week and a half, and now I'm trying to get my fingers readjusted. :lol:

Funny you should say that, I was going to say I should get a new husband (the guitar was still working a little bit before I asked him to have a look). And actually we're getting a divorce. Maybe he did it on purpose? :shock:

Hey Kat, I saw this picture and I thought of you.

That kat is jammin'

Found one for you too, Izzy

It's the rock that gives the stream its music . . . and the stream that gives the rock its roll.
