Hello ActiveMelody friends!
This is my first challenge submission and I had a hard time to be able to post it. 🙁 For some unkown reason my attemps to post in this thread didn’t work…
But if you guys are reading this its means that I finally found a way to post so let’s talk what matters… my submission. 🙂
I brought an electric guitar about a month and this is my first song that I learned on it. I used to play classical guitar with nylon strings, but I had no experience with electric guitar so learning this song was a big challenge for me. During the first week of practice I was having a hard time to do the bends and to have good definition in the notes. I also never recorded myself before and I feel that I need to do it from now on because it allowed me to find mistakes and have clear picture about how I truly play.
Actually the first time I heard myself I was disapointed because I was I was playing much worse than I tought. I played a lot of hours to accomplish this current level and Im verry happy with the progress I was able to make during this month.
The challenge gave me a lot of motivation and I know Im still making some mistakes but Im very happy to be part of AM because I feel that I found a place where I can learn and improve my guitar playing much more.
Thanks for watching and I appreciate all feedback/advices…

A really good lesson choice, I like the laid back feel the whole thing has and the way it follows the chords in places.

Alexsandre, I read your story, and it doesn’t sound like you are new to an electric guitar. Your play is very smooth. You sound good. So this is a great start! Thank you for posting.

No you don’t sound new to electronic guitar at all. Nicely done 👍

Alexsandre, your playing and the work on the fingerboard is very fluid. It sounds good. So that’s a great start! Thank you for your submission and welcome.

Alexandre, that was beautiful my friend. Great playing and tone – perfect mix. Thanks for sharing 🙂

Really well played, Alexandre. You did very well on the slides and bends. I heard a few bends that were not quite bent enough, but people who don’t play the guitar would never notice that. And to include some improv on your first recording is truly a sign of talent. It is as you say, once you start recording yourself – by video – your playing skills will rapidly increase.

Welcome Alexandre, nice first submission, looking forward to more.

Wonderful start Alexandre,
You and that electric guitar are going to be great companions.

That’s an incredible first challenge submission, Alexandre! You’re a great player and I see that you also must have hired a helper with the video 🙂 which is unusual here so it’s refreshing to watch 😉 Really well done!
