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.

        Yeah its a great place πŸ™‚ I should also record a new video, but I’m still fighting with the Highway to Hell solo and also with You shook me, and this are the ones I would like to record. Hopefully I will get it this year, hehe πŸ™‚

          Yes, you should – if you play loud enough you may even capture on tape the police breaking in after your neighbors call them πŸ™‚

            That would be funny, having them also on video then, shaking their heads and playing air guitar in their uniforms πŸ˜€

      Thanks, Rob! yeah, we got a new mac and it made things easier/faster for editing.
      I’ll work on the more accurate version next πŸ™‚
      Cheers!

        Are you using IMovie on the mac? I found it frustrating as hell but slowly getting used to it.

          Yeah, my “bench” is now GR4, iMovie, audacity for mixing, and a camcorder.
          I’m still getting the hang of iMovie but at least now I manage the basics of pasting and aligning sound and video efficiently – this used to be the major time sink for me.
          I also improved how I get multiple takes without pausing – most of the time takes me dozens before I get an alright take for the solo, I’m still far from target when it comes to consistency πŸ™‚

    I suppose you’re right, thanks! I’ll try that. Btw when you play this song, how do you tune your guitar? I tuned a bit over a quarter step up but I’m still not 100% sure. Cheers!

    Thanks, mate! I used guitar rig 4; I’ve been using a preset called let there be lead, I posted on this site’s filespace (both rhythm and solo, the only difference was the bridge pickup volume knob). Cheers!

    I got to get my kicks some way πŸ™‚ Been practicing this one for a while, saw the acoustic version posted here last week and decided to give it a try. Playing an Epi SG-400, with GR4.
