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.

      Thanks, Franz. I’m trying my best to find time to practice ‘opportunistically’, unplugged, when others are around, watching TV, etc; it’s hard to find lots of dedicated time πŸ™‚

        Yeah, similar here. Have an agreement with my wife where I only play loud every 2nd day. So I’m playing mostly only every 2nd day and sometimes unplugged or with the mini Vox amp. So yes, it’s hard to find dedicated time for me too πŸ™‚

          You got a good deal, I don’t get to play real-loud, only headphone-loud πŸ™‚ I only have a practice amp that, between mini Vox and GR4, doesn’t see much use.

            Yes, well, I get the volume up to the level of a very loud TV, otherwise the neighbors would lynch me πŸ™‚ But it’s already loud, yeah. My wife is sitting right next to me on the sofa now, so I told her about your comment and thanked her for this πŸ™‚

              Heh, when I get a decent amp I’ll be motivated. Right now Guitar Rig gives the best sound (plus the tape deck, slowed-down tempo and recording features), so I gravitate towards using it most of the time.

                Yeah, Guitar Rig has a really good sound and is maybe the best alternative to a tube amp. I would prefer Guitar Rig over my little Marshall MG 15.

    Ah, good song. Your cover of it is pretty good too. You should work on getting that bass note of the G chord in there too during the regular riff.

    You’re doing great mate!

      Thanks, Hyce.
      This is something I’m not sure: is the bass G note played in this song or not? If I remember correctly in one of Fil’s tutorial he played without the bass G, and in this song it sounds to me like it’s only the higher notes being played. It might be Angus doesn’t play it but Malcolm does.
      Cheers,

        No idea, I usually just play it with it. It helps “strengthen” the chord, ya know?

          Yeah, I should probably try this way too and see which sounds better. The regular riff in this song always sounded more on the treble side to me. cheers,

    Another song I’ve been having fun playing. Recorded with Guitar Rig 4, and an Epiphone SG.
