My Last Days on Earth

Here’s an awesome tune I learned recently. I’ve identified a few areas to improve in this video. I should have kept tremoloing longer in several spots, and I could have been more precise with my up the neck notes. If you have any other advice, I’m open to suggestions. If not, I hope you enjoy listening!

Oh, before you ask, the tuning is

I too felt the same. Made me think whatever happened to the last poster (that was Mark). :wink: After opening the thread, I couldn’t imagine Gunnar becoming ripe old within a day after discussing and wishing him to be forever young. :slight_smile:

Wow, that is awesome. Great job bud.

Does that tune have lyrics? Not for nothin’, I’m really noticing steady improvement on all of your instruments. I really enjoyed that.

I loved that!! Never heard it before, it’s similar to the old north woods, yet very different. Great job!

Thanks everyone! And sorry for freaking y’all out :joy::blush: FWIW, I took this arrangement almost completely from a video of Lauren Price playing the tune.

Thanks! Glad you enjoyed and welcome to the forum!
