My first take of Fingerstyle Blues, Level 1
Finally managed to memorize and play through the entire piece once. Still made some mistakes, and I've spontaneoulsy changed the ending a bit under the stress of knowing I'm on camera, but no major f-ups, which is what I was hoping for but still... almost a miracle. But now that this is done I can relax, and keep practicing at slower tempos and move on to other stuff, like... Level 2! :-)
I can see on my receipts that I've bought this lesson in March 2021, and considering I still got Level 2 and Level 3 to go through, it means you were perfectly right Emil, when you said: "just keep practicing and maybe... in a couple of years you'll get it!" :-)
WHOAAH!!! Amazing!! You sound really good and I'm so glad you've worked on this tune. It's a fun tune (but HARD to play!) and there are so many useful ideas in there. Really happy to see this video. If you're OK with it, do you mind me posting this on our instagram stories? ( @proguitarofficial )Totally OK if you don't want me to share -just asking just in case.
@emilernebro PS: absolutely agree on "fun tune" and "so many useful ideas in there"!
I remember when I first found the lesson I thought: "YES!!! This is exactly what I've been searching for!"
Actually this reminds me of a question i've been meaning to ask you! After starting this lesson, I had to go back one level so to speak, to Fingerstyle Basics (which was free I think) and learned Canned Heat there first:
But I've been looking high and low for an old Blues song called Canned Heat, and I found a truckload of songs by the BAND Canned Heat, but not a single SONG titled Canned Heat!! :-)
This Forum also returns nothing on Canned Heat.
Could you be so kind and provide a pointer or maybe even a link to this song on any platform please? :-)
I have a Chet Atkins CD called "The Early Years": 1946 - 1949, and "Canned Heat" is on there! :) I strongly recommend checking out that album! There's a few cd with all that early stuff. All titled "The Early Years".
I'll post your blues on insta story today! @proguitarofficial
Have a great day! /E
Awesome! Love that tune! Such a warm sound! Chet is the chief! :) /E
