    Ok, my 2nd guitar cover has been posted since starting playing guitar ;D
    This was a lot of fun, and I found it pretty hard to perform wildly and also play at the same time. Took 60 takes to get right. I didn’t want to make any cuts, so i used my best cut here and 2 other tracks for harmonized rhythms . There were 3 videos put together that were live.

    I even went through to get a ESYNC license because Sony had blocked it in almost every country lol. But I got it from WATH.

    Check it out 😉

    Thanks for stopping by Motley! Gonna work harder on my timing, i know that takes time/practice.
    Yea, I don’t want to be one of those stiff players. I got into guitar by watching people like Van Halen, Herman Li, other guys who are working the stage show.

    Totally cool! I remember playing this way back about 25 or so years ago but I didn’t have all the cool stuff like free backing tracks like we do nowadays so I had to play along with the RCA stereo and compete layered with the recording. The very first song I ever learned to play was “Rough Boy” by ZZ Top. Not a really technically challenging piece but sounded cool.

    Cheap Guitars (with some exceptions) play just about as good as expensive ones. It's your ability combined with an awesome amp that makes the difference.

    Yeah totally dumb video but a cool if slow song. The guy in my avatar is Gordon Lieu. He was probably the biggest post Bruce Lee Chinese cinema star.  His big movie was The 36th Chamber of Shaolin (aka “Shaolin Master Killer”). I saw that movie in the mid 1980’s and it made me want to study martial arts. I never made  it to Shaolin but I did study Hapkido in South Korea earning a Black Belt in 2010 and winning a gold medal at the World Hapkido Championship in Cheonan in 2008. I also competed in Muay Thai in Bangkok for a few years and studied Wing Chun and Hsing-i Kung Fu on the side.

      Bdickens Thanks!

      And Master Killer, I haven’t seen any of Gordon Lieu’s movie, or maybe I have? I remember watching several Bruce Lee Imposters when I was like 6 yrs old, but I couldn’t identify them! I did Shaolin Kung Fu when I was 11-12 but I then had to move and had to stop. I liked it then tho!

    I would suggest either mixing the backing track lower than you or panning the track hard to one side and yourself to the other. It is a bit difficult to tell where you end and the track begins. Which is a compliment on your playing, by the way.

      Well, I didn’t pan it all to one side, since I had 3 tracks as said in the title. One is in the center, one is on the right, one is on the left. THe Main track from the song is in the center/left/right.

      I tried panning all 3 tracks to one side, and it was HORRIBLE.

      But then I get a lot of people who actually complain if the song is too low in the mix. But, here’s what I’m doing next. For my next track, I have a main track, then one with no guitars at all (Rare). I’m going to play along to the guitars and then mute it in the final mix , so ur only gonna hear my guitar 🙂
      I won’t be able to do this every time tho.

    I solve the problem by recording my own backing track, but it is a LOT of work and I’m not sure how deep you want to get into it.
