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 there Ren, looking far more relaxed and it shows in your playing. I don’t check in as much these days but always like seeing your videos. Cheers Rob.

      Hey Rob, thanks – always a cheering word from you!
      I’m not there yet, but now I’m becoming really aware of the difference it makes when you are relaxing and moving around :)
      Cheers!

      Thanks, Ant! Yeah, I’m trying not to mind the mistakes too much, relax, let loose and move more.

      The baked SG is fine, waiting for when I come back, this is a temporary Epi I bought while in Europe :)

      Cheers!

          Yeah, we already came way over-packed; paying excess baggage and worrying that the guitar could break in the delicate hands of the baggage handlers unless I got a better case, I thought it’d be better to just buy a new Epi and try to sell it before I go back :)

              Close to a year now, but it’s ending soon. Yeah, it’s a bolt-on. To me, the SG is much nicer, but the Epi is a good replacement for the time being :)

                      Yeah, it’s been a great experience. I miss the SG, but the upside is, when I return, it’s like getting a new guitar all over again :)

    Far from making justice to this solo, but – I’m finally beginning to loosen up, and I haven’t posted a video in a while, so time to share :)
