Under The Influence, A Personal Challenge

So I've been compelled by something lately to learn Under the Influence (Rusty Cooley) and I've finally pulled up the tab and watched his videos enough to start learning it. So far, I've spent like 2 hours just learning the first minute, and while I'm not yet anywhere near mastering the notes, I've decided to start a thread documenting my level of insanity as I learn more of the song. I'm going to be updating this thread with more and more .mp3s, and hopefully I'll actually end up mastering at least most of it.

Now, given the fact that Cooley plays it on a 7-string, and I only have a wimpy little 6-string, It's definitely going to be harder. I'm just going to try and just play it as well as I can.

So, here's the first recording. Keep in mind, this isn't anywhere near as good as it can be. In this, I'm not warmed up at all, so the first run and picking are sloppy as heck, and at points I just completely stink, but whatever, I'll fix that later. TO THE RECORDING!

Attached File  Under_the_Oh_god_this_is_difficult.mp3 ( 980K ) Number of downloads: 265

Edit: Ugh, looking at that now it sounds terrible. Picking is off, first run sounds terrible, screwed up the sweep, I definitely have to fix this. I'll do it in the morning though, it's 1:30 AM.

Edit2: Dear lord. I'm tempted to take it down right now so you guys don't get the wrong idea, but I don't want to leave a thread recording-less till morning.
