Another thumbs up from me, I also try to listen to everything posted, but like Gasbag I usually don't feel qualified to actually give critical feedback. I'm usually in the 'yes, I like it' equivalent (minimum) if I do like it, and Wow, or something, if it is 'my sort of music' and I really liked it.

I don't mind at all if someone posts something that is at beginner stage, and am more likely to give those people extra support and encouragement because I know from personal experience that you feel hesitant, to say the least, when you know that it's not really very good, but you post it anyway.

The best thing about this forum (usually), is that everyone is always supportive and no-one ever gets flamed, like they can on Youtube.

Many/most of us here are beginners, even if we have been picking away for years. I reckon that if (on the very rare occasion) someone posts something that sounds even worse than me, I think that's great, and they should be encouraged. Mostly because I know it is not easy exposing your own lack of ability in 'public' - but what it also means for me, is that (amazingly) I am not the worst player/singer here!

For the record, I am nowhere near as good a player as you, and yes, I did like your recording - impressed even! It must have taken you ages, and I'm glad you posted it again.

It sounded good to me, and they tell my hearing is good, but I think my musical ear might have some limitations. For me, a good song is an authentic song, delivered authentically, and this song definitely does that. Sounded good to me too, it really did. :)

Hang in there, and glad you can still face making music - and we get the benefit!

Hi Mike, yes the pdf for Misty would be great. I had a listen and it is cooool! Has anyone ever asked you to "Play Misty for me?". You need to have seen the movie where that is a theme - I think it was a Clint Eastwood movie?

Whoooa! that music should carry a language warning!

Those chord names would impress anyone. And playing those chords? Yes, a challenge but not impossible (yet). I'm up to about bar 8, with getting my fingers onto the required notes. What I hear is definitely not music, but I just gave my fretting hand a great workout and those chords sound very nice, sometimes.

Thanks for the pdf, Mike, how long did it take you to get this up to playing speed - not recording level, but being able to play it so it sounded like music?
