My version of the Dave Loggins classic. Beautiful song when the guy who wrote it sings it. Haha. Sorry for the static, it was recored on my computer's webcam. The lyrics and chords were just from memory so if I butcher a verse go easy on me!
I owe everything to the GMC singing lessons. 6 months ago I couldn't sing in key to save my life. Now, I think I'm at least "acceptable".
If anyone wants to sing but doesn't think they can, trust me, just TRY for a few months and you'll get better. My earlier recordings are so bad I'm embarrassed to post them here! haha
Keep on rockin' (and singin' and bassin' and everything else GMCers do)

I just found an awesome video on youtube a couple of days ago. The guy was cool enough to post the sheet music for the song too.
If there's one song that's going to impress your girlfriend, it's this one
Hahaha. It sounds shallow to say that, but it works like a charm. I started playing this in the hallway between classes today and within 5 minutes I had a full crowd of women listening.
This is just one of those great Eric Clapton songs everyone should learn. Good luck with it.
(oh yeah, I play it tuned down a half step with a capo on the 2nd fret. I guess it's the same as normal tuning w/ a capo on the 1st fret. Playing in G#/Ab always sounds good on the acoustic guitar for some reason... maybe it's because most songs are either in G or A. Who knows....)
Edit --- guess it would help to post the link!

I just bought a Mac for the first time last week and I'm trying to figure out how to use Garage Band. I've been a Windows user my whole life and usually record with Audacity and my Pod XT Live.
Does anyone use Garage Band? There's a huge support file for it, but like any self-respecting man, I don't want to sit down and read the manual for it. The software seems straight forward enough, but I'm not sure how to go about connecting my guitar.
I plug into a Pod XT Live, and then plug that into the Mac. Now what do I do?
Any advice would be great. Or if anyone's used this and thinks it sucks, let me know before I waste time messing with it. I didn't even know it came with the computer, but since it's there I thought I'd check it out.

Guitar gods should take this with a grain of salt, but this one is GOOD (for me at least).
There's a few errors because I was trying to play something that's about 6 months ahead of my skill level, but this one was FUN to jam to.
I found a backing track to the ZZ Top song "Tush" with vocals and just started jammin' to it. The riff isn't exactly how they play it because the entire thing was done by memory. The solos were all improved.
Solo 1 starts 50 seconds in, and solo 2 starts @ 1:50. It's not perfect, but I think I got the Bill Gibbons vibe in there.
I've been playing guitar for about 10 months now. Couldn't even play a scale before GMC!
Keep on rockin'!

(oh yeah, the reason I disappeared from the forum is because school started up again. I got time to practice but not to post.)

I've been trying to get the recording software to work for about a month, and now that it finally does, I want to post this even though it sucks. My computer died 40 seconds in, so it cuts off right when I was getting into the main solo.
I've been playing for about 9 months now. I probably have all the classic beginner mistakes, but please point them out to me anyway.
I love the solo in Judas Priest's "Living After Midnight" but didn't want to play it exactly their way. I sort of quoted the first few lines, then improvised the rest.
Any feedback would be great. I already can tell that a few of the bends are out of tune.
Sorry that it cuts off at the end like that. I'm still trying to work out the kinks in my recording equipment.
