    As a new member, I thought I'd share a recording of my playing. It's just a gig recording, so it's not perfect (in more ways than one)

    Since there are a lot of good players here, any helpful criticism or suggestions are appreciated.

    In order to begin talking... you must communicate to the great multitude of guitarists here what's your gear, otherwise we don't listen to anithing!
    Great sound, very warm and clean. Is that a live recording?

    Ha, thanks, I didn't think about gear . . . it's a D'angelico EX-DC (Korean, older model) straight into a Fender Deluxe Reverb Reissue. I did replace the stock pickup on the guitar with a hand-wound one by Smits Pickups. I'm using the Dunlop 209 pick and Thomastik GB roundwound strings (12s).

    It is a live recording, just a cocktail gig. People were pretty noisy.

    Gleepglop: nice to have you onboard as said. You play fantastic, I love your touch and sound. Class player in my brown book. We have a thread with forum members playing, and one forum-member-biography (dont forget give info about pets, other intrests and a bunch of trivial stuff).

    Once again, great playing gleepglop, I look forward listening to more of your playing.

    Best, Sandemose

    I agree - it's a very nice recording!

    Yeah, that does sound good! As for criticisms, I have nothing to say! Ballads are something I need to do some more work on. They really test how much vocabulary you have down. The slow tempo really demands variety in one's playing.

    hey, thanks guys for the encouraging comments!

    Sandemose, thanks, I'll post in the members playing thread next time.

    Poparad, I agree about ballads--I need to work more on the slow tempos too (and the fast tempos! uh, and the rest of them probably as well . . . ah, there's so much to work on). Part of the challenge of a ballad for me is that my typical vocabulary tends to sound contrived and it forces me to try to be more creative.

    As Nir Felder said to me in an email -
    'we all have such a long way to go, and always will.'

    you sound good gleepglop
