Almost got it. This riff is from a song that saved my life and it's only fitting that it be played on Jimmy's Dragon Telecaster. Just gotta smooth out the picking and get Jimmy's groove down.
Taking another crack at Zeppelin. Fuckin' Jimmy Page. Lol.

Radiant Eclipse

This would normally be played on Beetlejuice but I'm not messing with the tuning. A little bit of the Radiant Eclipse intro.

Here's some random bullshit for everyone. Random bullshit counts as practice right? Co-starring a very indifferent dog.

Troubadour by George Strait

Yes. That's a DIY capo. I couldn't find my real one. I like to play along at speed sometimes as a benchmark to see how close I am to getting a song down. So there are a few mistakes.

Taking a break from Crimson Day to work on this pioneering song. Really fun.

I LOVE this guitar. The riff is a bit sloppy since I just looked up the tab yesterday.

Crimson Day intro to chorus

Please be honest because this sounds like dog shit to me. I've been working on this for weeks and haven't progressed past 48 bpm. Getting frustrated. Am I on the right track?
Crimson Day intro to pre-chorus with a few mistakes left in. Can't wait to get it up to speed and smooth out the chord changes so it sounds better. Right now it sounds so disconnected.

K. I've been working on the Crimson Day intro for a week. Such beautiful guitar work in this song. Definitely one of my top 10 Avenged songs. Also, any and all tips welcome.
Getting better. Close to being ready to work on the bridge.
Still 52 BPM short of the recording but that transition is coming along.
Got some fine tuning to do, but I was able to play part of Going to California along with the recording. Big thanks to @[1427:@Ed Seith] for the tip on practicing faster than the recording and thanks to @[4668:@Alicia Willis] for the tip on pinky finger anchoring. Still working on that jump from intro to main theme, but it's getting faster.

Spending quality time with my acoustic and I think that Jimmy Page's acoustic work is underappreciated. I'm still working on the transition between the first and second part, so I paused the video. That's why there's a skip. I've come a long way in 2 days.
Sounds better than it did a few weeks ago believe it or not. Lol. Any tips appreciated. I'll be gradually working the thumb pick in. I tried it today but it frustrated me.

Bring it on Home intro

So, this really could be any Blues riff. But I first heard it on Bring it on Home by Led Zeppelin. Was also dicking around with my Blues driver pedal.
Not sure if this is rock or not, but I'm putting it here. A few mistakes and I'm not at finger picking or speed stages yet but it's coming along. I was feeling camera shy, hence the mask.

I was a bit anxious/nervous about showing my face on camera so I look a bit twitchy. Lol. I meant to say that Jimmy Page inspired me to want to play electric guitar and Syn inspired me to learn it.
Figured it out on accident.
