Thanks guys I appreciate it!

It was quite nerve racking, but I was very happy with how it went.

too bad the recoding doesn't have you louder than the shoppers. being there you sounded great I would bet.
you played well, but you kinda looked nervous. only a little. it is so cool to watch your progress.

Yeah I wish that were the case as well. The PA was up as loud as I could get it without feeding back. The thing was dropped apparently and didn't work right according to the person who set this up.

I think I may have only been more nervous when my son was born LOL, but I think even with the nerves it went really well.

I know when I started I really had no aspirations of playing out, doing any sort of recording....just doing it for myself, and this thing just took on a life of it's own...I don't know when that happened LOL. My wallet is screaming for me to stop I know that much

My biggest congratulations! That sounded great. You have a lot more nerve than I do. I can't even get up the nerve to do my first video here! This might be just the encouragement I need to do it... just to be safe though, I will probably post in the Beginner Vids area where I belong :)

Have you considered a sound hole cover to help with the feedback?

There are cheap ones - the rubber ones like this:

Or, really nice ones like this: http://www.lutehole.com/lutehole.php

I need to get one for my travel guitar, but due to the little tiny soundhole, these ones won't fit.

Yeah, you should post a video....we've all been waiting LOL. I'd love to hear how far you've come.

The PA was what was actually making the feedback, it was doing it when I didn't have a mic plugged into it. I don't know how, I don't now why.

But I do have one of those sound hole covers and is a good idea for the next one, I'll have to use it for sure!

Oh man, that link....you're killing me, I can't spend anymore money...I would love one of those LOL.

I will make it a priority to get a vid up... there are a few songs I can make it through pretty well and I really need to start doing it so proceed to the next level.

I am approaching my 6th month anniversary of seriously learning to play. I first put a guitar in my hands about a year and a half ago, but never really had a proper direction, or practice regime.

I basically consider my first serious day of learning to play on October 7th, 2009.... you can see why here:

So, before that, I had a lot of basic chord practice, and "fooling around" - but I wouldn't say I was actually learning to play.

Joe, you seriously have been a serious muse for me and I am sure a lot of others too. Thank you, and keep it up! And... with your recent purchases, please don't forget about fingerstyle...!

Ah yeah, I remember that post. I actually still do the same thing LOL. But I do go back to fingerstyle all the time. Working on that True from Lick By Neck, changing some of it, but it sounds pretty good on my hollow body electric. And it's fun to play.

But, man stick with this, if I can do this anyone can LOL. I tend to get VERY frustrated when I can't do things well right off the bat, but I was able to stick with this. I still do get pretty frustrated with the guitar alot but I've kind of figured out ways of keeping things in check before the guitar gets smashed into a wall (came very VERY close a couple times)
