Rocking the Guthrie Govan track "Orange Jam"  complete improv.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TYrTZ0qZNS0

Not a fan of using your little finger? :P
Really good playing though!
A couple months into my picking up guitar my pinky finger was broken badly.  I should have taken it off but I kept playing (without my pinky obviously) and developed a bad habit.

It's really strange to watch but you cope very well being a finger down.

thanks alot dude! i tried to put that on youtube but it gets caught by the copyright thing every time
1) Go to "My Videos".
2) Select "Resolve Copyright" on the video you are having copyright issues with. OR, go to the video itself and choose "resolve copyright" from there.
3) Scroll down and pick the option "I want to learn more about this dispute process".
4) Scroll down and pick the option "Take me to the dispute form".
5) Pick option #2 and PASTE the following statement into the text bar next to it;

"Copyright Disclaimer Under Section 107 of the Copyright Act 1976, allowance is made for "fair use" for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research. Fair use is a use permitted by copyright statute that might otherwise be infringing. Non-profit, educational or personal use tips the balance in favor of fair use."

6) Fill out the rest of the info on the page. Use your REAL name where it asks for it. Choose "Continue" when all information has been filled out.
7) Scroll down on the next page and select "Submit dispute".

Totally works every time.

Here's a music video my bassist made about year ago of live compilations of my old band playing our name sake song.
There's more videos, all live on his page. He and I started a new band called Dorian Gray recently, so we'll have demos and shit for that up soon enough.

So it's not the best take and my guitar volume should've been louder but whatever. Here's me playing the first solo in SRV's Pride and Joy.

That was fucking DEAD ON, both tone and playing wise. Great job! Also, how did you get such a great tone, it looked like you were using the neck/middle pickup?

Thank you, sir! I was actually just using the middle pickup. my guitar was plugged into a line 6 ux1 and I had its software running a chain of a Tube Screamer, some tweed amp, and a bit of reverb. i had the audio output through my iPod dock speakers. I played the Pride and Joy track pitch shifted up so I could play along in E and I had iMovie capture the audio and video from the onboard camera/microphone, which is why I couldn't really make the guitar any louder. How you hear it in the video is kind of a misrepresentation because standing there the track volume was really low and my guitar was super loud, so it was real hard to hear SRV in order to keep time.

It certainly sounded more than fine. What made it even better was that you got all the little slides down and random barely audible notes he plays in gaps perfectly as well, so it sounded virtually indistinguishable from the actual song. Pro!

I've been considering getting a virtual amp setup going for a while now, and I suppose this year might be finally time to bite the bullet as it's the only way I'll be getting tones like that without a pickup upgrade and an actual tube screamer. Anyway, I'm still mindblown by that cover.

I listened to The Road Home today, and was inspired by JR Piano Medley. I sat down and tried to play the beginning (the Soon cover) by ear, and then I just let myself go, and decided to record it. Let me know what you guys think :D

Good playing, especially considering you are improvising. I didn't notice many mistakes :)

Maybe too many twiddly-widdly fast runs in there, but I guess that's what happens when you record an impro after having listened to the Wizard  :lol

What camera did you use for the recording? Good quality!

Canon IXUS 12015, it got 720p recording; but somehow I didn't see that option to upload the full 720p version, so it's only 240p, but still kinda descent for a digital camera.

Yeah, I hear that a lot that I do too much fast runs, but it's just so much fun. This was the first time that I just tried something by ear, and soon is an a great song to start with because it's easy (or at least the key I used is easy: Am, C, Dm, Am, C).

That was pretty good. There's a couple of important things though. You should learn to play the ascending/descending arpeggios with one hand. It's much more accurate and it will allow you to use your left hand for bass accompaniment/octaves. Also, your trills need practice. They're a bit out of control. But overall it's not bad at all.

I've seen that one before. Apart from the singer's attempt at the F# and the keyboardist's backing vocals at the end it's all pretty solid. I can't comment on the details because the sound from the camera isn't clear enough, but it does seem like you are doing a good job on the guitar ;)

I made a fun cover of the song "Mute City" from the SNES game "F-Zero" two months ago. Don't want to post it in this thread, because the video actually only shows me playbacking to my finished recording  :lol And I've already made a thread about it here: http://www.dreamtheaterforums.org/boards/index.php?topic=17036.0

I just recorded a video of my piano playing. I'm playing Tifa's Theme from Piano Collections of Final Fantasy VII. Amazing song...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Bla4m7JG9w

I had MASSIVE trouble actually recording it. My original plan was to use the Mac's built in iSight and just send the keyboard's sound directly to the computer. After fiddling with it for weeks, I just said FUCK IT and put my iPhone on a stand and went for it. And I was actually quite satisfied with the end result. :lol

Remember though, I'm no piano player, I'm a guitar player! :P Go easy on me!

Dude, it's amazing what overall sound we got out the equipment we had on that night. The sound guy that was hired never showed up that night, and it was his equipment he was going to bring. So, we all drove home bringing in our PA systems, hooked them all together and that was our PA. The only thing picked up on that gig were the keys, vocals and bass. Drums weren't picked up, and I had to crank my amp to the max to compete with the rest.
