I came across this guys' videos a while back and was just looking at it again as I'm setting up my strat with new strings (as well as my Schecter), and I thought it was worth sharing.
I love his accent as well

Been jamming along to this Pink Floyd/David Gilmour-ish track today and thought: "Why not make a jam with other GMC'ers?", but of course I need to know if anyone is interested first.
My thinking was that I'd find some backing tracks that are neatly split up in parts, so each gets to play for a certain amount of bars and then the next one comes in. So for this specific track it would be like this:
1st: 00:00 -> 01:04
2nd: 01:04 -> 02:08
3rd: 02:08 -> 02:53
4th: 02:53 -> 03:57
5th: 03:57 -> 05:01
6th: 05:01 -> End
Just as any other collab, I'd ask for your solo with the backing track and unaccompanied as well and I'll mix them together at the end of the week.
Anyone is free to join at all levels, and just give it your best shot within the timeframe, which is quite short, but I feel a monthly jam is a bit too spread out.
I'll be trying to find free backing tracks on youtube, which we can use. There are all kinds of backing tracks. Or perhaps someone on the forum has made some themselves (I'm not quite there yet!) that they would want to share for this.
So, is anyone interested? (Instructors, you can join as well if you want!) Some topics could be bending, vibrato, making 2nd harmony guitar, fast picking runs, melodic slow playing, arpeggios and so on. Also input on timeframe would be nice! Weekly? Fortnight?
If there's interest I'll go ahead and set up a more official thread.

...didn't see it coming at all, though he had been meowing a bit much lately and whining on the toilet. I came home after 2 days away and he had blood all over his reproduction parts. Took him to the vet, turns out he had some massive kidney problems, also teeth problems... they might have fixed it all, but it would have been £1200 and months of pain to the cat perhaps, and maybe not even bettering it as the kidney stones might have stopped his urinal ways again. Such a tough decision. Worst in my life. In tears... naffing hell.

I've been having this problem lately of constantly being tired, despite getting enough and good sleep. And I kinda have this feeling that it's making me not wanting to play guitar, as I hate playing when tired.
Any good advice to feeling awake and refreshed quickly?
