hi there, 1st time poster, ive been playing since mid march

well anyways heres a link to some stuff ive made up, its bits and pieces though of 1 of the song ideas i have...but some of it towards the end is improvised though

oh and by the way, im self taught, never have seen a teacher before(music teacher that is) and barely knew what a chord was until 3 months ago, but since then ive practiced my ass off and i think ive gotten pretty good for a short time, oh and it keeps on stopping because it was recorded using the "record a sound" option from the windows start menu, using earphones as the microphone, but the quality is passable I think

Hi navi93

:lol: I do like these names - my Mum taught me mine from a very early age.. :roll:

Well, if you were feeling dejected and left out of the beginners videos loop, then rightly so!!!! Where are all you fellow beginners to give a boost to first time posters :?

Hello... is there anybody out there, can anybody here me... yeh, ok, it's a friday and I've had a beer, but, seriously... :lol:

I just thought to myself - what's going on in beginners videos, opened up a bottle of beer and sat back to watch a brand new video of a beginner and...THIS VIDEO HAS BEEN REMOVED BY THE USER!

Were you inundated by screaming hoards of whatever you fancy and record label bosses wanting to get their hands on you - or it was crap! :?

Either way, we want to hear. Don't keep us in suspense....especially after practicing your 'donkey' off! :roll:

As for me, two years in September so I suppose I should do an anniversay compilation.... :|

Rock on!

I really don't want this post to die :shock:

It's been a fantastic inspiration, and I'm determined to get off my ample butt and add some video in the next 7 days. Hopefully that will encourage other newbies to post as well.

What I lack in talent and natural ability, I will have to make up with stubborness.

I don't want this post to die either :cry:

but we need FRESH BLOOD :twisted:

Welcome aboard bkangel- to you we pass the torch - I have no one to blame for my absence but the fact that guitarnoise quit notifying my about updates on this thred :twisted: and that I've been playing guitar for 2 yrs 10 mo which I don't think makes me a real beginner anymore.

I finally got to a point where I don't mind playing in front of others (and trust me, sometimes you just have to lay your guitar on people - waiting for requests will get you nowhere). Singing AND playing, especially while dealing with stage fright is as it will ever be a work in progress :roll: Videos were and still are an awesome start :wink:

Some of the braver people use YouTube.
Others use sites like

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

Wow - I got away for FIVE MINUTES and you let the thread die? :roll:

I bet you all play like real pros now, and I'm still way behind. Currently learning... Comfortably numb! Haha. I'll have some time next week to post a vid, if my mic works (getting that Microsoft cam really was a mistake).

I hope you're all doing okay.

Take care.

If you are adventurous, you can check out JAW's site for info how to create a great video by using your webcam for the video, and plugging your guitar straight into your computer (if you have an electric / acoustic-electric).

It is not that hard... but the first time through will be a little slow going through all the settings.

Maybe... just maybe... I will be submitting by first video here soon. Maybe. :)

Well hello Izzy, welcome home.....

Do you know, my right arm becomes uncomfortably numb nowadays when resting it on the edge of my guitar at a certain angle.... which is ironic as this may be the title of the next video extravaganza we are going to get from our illustrious founder. :wink:

I am thinking that the sands of time are running out for my guitar playing although I still have a couple more video nasties up my sleeve before I throw in the towel.... I've started playing golf so I may give that my undivided attention... :?

Anyways, all these young pretenders threatening to upload videos - where are they? C'mon, stop dragging your heels, let us all have a good laugh and remember the good old days... which for me actually isn't a lot different to today :D

Rock on!

I am just learning this instrument.
This is processed through a Kurzweil Mangler and a Pair of Moogerfooger phase shifters.

Okay, okay. I've procrastinated long enough. I picked up the guitar a few months ago, and this thread has really given me a lot of encouragement. So, here's my little addition: Drive You Home by Garbage. Probably should have played it faster, but I think its passable this way. Singing's a bit rusty too, so go easy!!

Very good! :D

You sing very well, you have a very nice voice! It is not easy to play (fingerstyle!) and to sing simultaneously and you did it! Probably you made a couple of mistakes but it can be easily fixed.

I like the tempo, I don't think you should have played faster.

I like it very much. Keep practicing and keep posting!

And welcome to GN!

dd (can I call you dd?) that is :shock: awesome - I mean, all Shirley Manson has to do is stand there and sing.

Now singing AND playing has to be one of the hardest things to learn :roll:

And you're not afraid to get in front of the camera and share your music which has to be the other hardest thing :twisted: And like Nuno said, you have a lovely voice too :mrgreen: very easy on the ears...

Next step: youtube! and then the world! :lol:

I hope you were well!
