Earls breakdown (Roughly)


#1

I had a stab at earls breakdown. Now normal I can give this a better shot than this but for some reason (maybe the dreaded recording nerves) as soon as I hit that red button my playing goes to pieces. Plus it was first thing in the morning :laughing: i’ve been playing for 2 years now. I’m by no means a great player but I keep practising with @BanjoBen help and this great site

Nice job! I know what you mean about those camera nerves. Keep recording. They get in the way a little less each time.

Thanks for posting!

Fine job for 2 years at it!

The only things I noticed to comment on is that you might work on getting the notes more defined at the end of each roll…

I thought that was Excellent Jon. Much better than I can play it for sure. I know what you mean about the red light syndrome. I seem to have learned to shrug that of in recent years

Who’s the bearded man looking over your shoulder?


#6

Is it Gandalf?

Thanks all. Yes I’m trying to get my notes a bit more defined. Thats why I’ve started to record myself to pick up on things I need to improve. I still struggle a bit on the pull offs and hammer ons. I’ll keep practising…i’m in for the long hall :wink: BTW. …yes that’s a painting I did of Gandalf. My other half loves TLOTR. :slight_smile:

Great job, @jonathanplymouth!

Now see, that just… man c’mon… You just told me in another thread to not be shy and record myself. I was just getting ready to reply to you with some well thought out smart a$$ retort that probably would have included a put up or shut up type diatribe, good natured of course. But now I can’t, so thanks a lot.

Nice job Jonathan. You’re a better man than I :slight_smile:

Thanks Ben. :+1:

You can combine your love of banjo and your other half’s love of LOTR!

Cool! Haha…I might just get that! :rofl:
