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, Rob – one of my favorites too ๐Ÿ™‚ This whole album is raw rock and roll, great stuff. I’m slowly trying to work out the solos now.

      Thanks, Franz.
      (BTW, I ended up recording with a camcorder, capturing the audio with GuitarRig and syncing video/sound on iMovie; worked out better than a webcam with mic audio).
      Cheers ๐Ÿ™‚

        Yeah, thats exactly my problem here. The webcam in my laptop skips frames sometimes when recording, that will get the audio out of sync sooner or later here.
        Seems that I need to get a camcorder to get a good video. I mean, you all should have a nice view when I’m torturing your ears ๐Ÿ˜€
        And btw, it’s nice to see you in person at all ๐Ÿ™‚

          Hehe ๐Ÿ™‚ Yeah, I had the same problem, annoying skips with the webcam.
          Syncing with iMovie was pretty easy, I was impressed, the interface is great, as usual with Apple (with Windows movie maker it would have been near impossible…)

            Ok, then I’ll have to look for a camcorder.
            Although I have a Mac, I dont have iMovie here, so I’m using a Linux program (kdenlive, very similar to Final cut pro) for adding the audio track.

    My first video here – goes with thanks to Fil, Justin Sandercoe, and Jaiminho Pagina. About a year ago I could barely get a chord right and I learned a lot from watching them. Cheers and happy holidays to all.

      Ah ๐Ÿ™‚
      You are welcome my friend!
      Glad to hear my videos could be useful to you ๐Ÿ™‚

      But, of course, I gotta thank Fil for everything I know! I would still be learning from tabs if it wasn’t for his videos! XD

      Great performance! Your timing is really tight!

      Happy Holidays (well… it’s still Christmas here XD)
      A Prosperous New Year! Best wishes! Cheers! ๐Ÿ™‚

        Well, saying your videos could be useful is one of the biggest understatements ever, Andre ๐Ÿ™‚
        They are really a great help.

        Hey, that’s the spirit – you learned from Fil, I learned from both of you, one day maybe someone will learn from me. More music in this world is a good thing.

        Feliz natal (I’m a Brazilian expat, my friend ๐Ÿ™‚
