Renato @ Florida; I bought and started learning to play guitar about two years ago, a bit late in life (I am 39). Still a beginner, but motivated and inspired by Fil and other 'bedroom rockers'. I've been posting a few videos here and sound bites on soundcloud, as sort of a logbook with snippets of how my playing (hopefully) evolves, and it may help inspire others who love music to take an instrument, practice, play, and have fun. To contact me by email, my gmail.com username is the same as my username here.

    Great job as always Renato. I tried this a while back, but it went into the “I’ll try again when I’m better” box. πŸ™‚ Kind of makes me want to give it another go.

      Thanks, Rob!
      Yeah, definitely give it another go, you can do it. This took me maybe a month to get to where I am now, but I felt it was a good and challenging target to practice and improve, and to me it has lots of “ingredients” of Angus’ solos πŸ™‚
      Cheers, Renato

    Good tone, something to review about the solo but very well.

      Thanks for the comment, Chabum.
      Yeah, I can hear a couple places in the solo where timing is bad, some missed notes and the vibrato is a constant work in progress. I see the light at the end of the tunnel for this one song now though, always liked and never thought I could get close to playing it right πŸ™‚
      Cheers

    I’ve been practicing this song for a while… lots to improve, but I wanted to get a video done to celebrate my 2 years of playing, and that’s as far as I went πŸ™‚ Cheers, Renato
