Didn't originally plan on uploading this as I started recording stuff this morning just to document my own progress. However, I figured it'd probably help my motivation to put it out there and want to improve on it later! Apologies in advance for my background, rambling, etc. So here we go, me learning the absolute basics, which @[5:@Jak Angelescu] encouraged me to do after one of my vids on Instagram! My next goal is to revisit my Kakariko Village cover thing on my Instagram and learn all of the notes the chords use, so I can gain a better understanding of what I'm doing! I'll also most likely be going back to the CAGED system stuff with this as well! Hopefully this will give me enough to do when I take small breaks from trying to sweep!

  • 2 days into 2022 and it looks like I need a new pack of strings. Dad's helping to sort my Floyd out and apparently the top E just.. Said no 😂

    But hey, there's a Satan in the box and she's cute, so it kinda makes up for it? Lol (let's see if this photo uploads. Also hi, what strings work best on a drop D Syn Custom S? lmao)

    First practice of the year, and first lil bit of progress! I'm working on A7X's Lost as I said I would be, and for the most part, I know the notes for the intro! Now just to figure out how to tidy them up.. This song's gonna be tough lmao.

    (And for once... there's a video of it coming very shortly :D)
    Just wanted to drop a lil note here and say I hope you're all having a wonderful day or night where you are, dear Synners and Systers! If you're practicing rn, I hope it's going well! If you happened to mint a Deathbat over the past few days, I have my fingers crossed for ya that you get the one(s) you wanted!! If you're just chilling, I hope you're having a good time! Much love!! ❤️
    Synners, I must ask... Who's minting Deathbats Club in an hour and a half?! LFG!
    Thought just crossed my mind... I'd love to surprise my dad by learning some Rockabilly guitar... For years he'd tease me about playing some, so I'd like to actually do it. I wonder if there's anyone here who knows a bit about that and can give me some pointers?

    For reference, I'd like to learn some Stray Cats or Vince Ray stuff.. Maybe a good idea for some lessons?

    He's a great musician, I love his stuff. Me and my fam, we're actually really close with him IRL, he's kinda like my uncle by now :ROFLMAO: Kinda been meaning to ask him how he plays his stuff, but well...

    Yeah, I've given a few of chuck's stuff a brief go in the past, though I wanted to see if there's any major techniques or anything to note before I go right into it. And yeah, I'd say it falls under Rockabilly

    Super cool :D It seems strange for me to see/meet famous people.
    My friend was a manager at a clothing store and said Synyster and Zacky came in one time to shop
    I freaked out
    My friend was more into Hip-Hop he knew I was into their music
    I think bending and double stops are used often but I need to hear it more
    Maybe pentatonic stuff too
    I keep listening to random stuff o_O

    If I have a band in mind but not a specific song I look through the tabs on songsterr. Find one on your level you like. You can always look up lessons on Youtube later
    So... it's exam results day here in the UK...

    AND I FUCKING SMASHED IT!
    + Distinction* in Music Performance (highest you can get for BTEC)!
    + A in my Music Technology A Level!

    So thrilled right now!! This course taught me a lot about performing and learning to record! Hopefully I'll be able to share something again soon, but for now... I'm just over the moon! Thank you to everyone who gave me support when I was stressing about college, you guys are amazing ❤️
    🤘💀🤘
    Today officially marks the one year anniversary of my mum's passing. I don't say it for sympathy though, not at all. Rather, I say it here because it was this community that helped me through the darkness and managed to bring a wonderful light back to my life. And I wanna thank every single one of you, both staff and students, synners and systers alike, on behalf of myself and my fam for all the love and support you showed, and all the strength you guys gave us since that day. I'm so grateful for every single one of you, and I love you all dearly. Keep shredding and keep being fucking amazing, everyone!

    🤘 ❤️ 🤘
    As of 3 minutes ago, I have officially aged. 18 feels weird, lol. Here comes the back pain! 👨‍🦳
    Checking in on all our Synners and Systers today - How we all doin?! Hope you're all having a great day! 🤘 💀 🤘
    Alrighty folks... Tell me, what video game do you think has the best soundtrack? Looking for some new stuff to dig!
    🤘💀🤘
    Officially finished up one half of my college courses today, and things are looking seriously good at that!! Can't wait to have more time to dedicate to guitar! :rock-hand: :skull: :rock-hand:

    That's poggers!! I still have like one more year before graduating high school. I'm planning to take the music program in college. Tho, not sure if I want to take a gap year. It would be beneficial to as I can improve my playing by far before auditioning and getting into college. But hope you do very well in college.

    Hell yeah man, you go for whatever you think is best!! It sounds like you've got a good idea of what you want, which is good lol. Thank you!

    What's a C Major scale?
    @Dominik Gräber is being mean to me.
    I don't feel like I fit in here
    How come Papa doesn't write me back?
    Why isn't Syn more active here?
    I want your attention
    FEED ME!
    Can you practice the guitar for me?
    How do I post a forum?
    How do I play guitar?
    Can you hook me up with a free lesson from Bill?
    Spent the last few days working on releasing my new EP with a good friend (Now available, by the way!), and now I can go back to working on my technique again! Working on learning a few new scales too to keep things a bit more interesting!
