I'm no expert, I think it was fine job. I'll let the expert dudes critique. I don't know if I could play very well on stage - soloing for sure. That would be scary.

Great man, it looked relaxed to me! There was some minor mistakes (nothin serious), but as we know the audience is far more stupid that we think they are... laugh.gif
One thing that appears to me though is that You maybe looked down/at the guitar a little bit too much. An audience just loves when You are facing them and looks at THEM. I use to find the prettiest girl in the audience and look at her - which in my case puts a silly smile on my face, unless Im not gigging on a retirement home ofc.
Otherwise I think You did very well !!!!

EDIT:
Btw. I just love the song too.....

wow.. I would want to cover this song as well.. very very expressive. You played good. I haven't listened much to this song so I cannot tell where you are making mistakes (apart from few notes at one two places).

Anyway, I remember my playing back in school. Always head down and no expressions. smile.gif Yep, I think you moved quite a lot (a kind of nervousness I would say). You should look up to the crowd very often especially in long bends which this song has quite some. Looking away on these long notes will keep away from making mistakes as well as audience feels you are playing for them. Looking up might help when you are bending just as a gesture or to show your expressions. Moving the guitar around, lifting it up or down depending upon what you are playing. It makes a great player when you can express. Well, don't overdo as steve vai (I kinda hate his and looks too porny (fake) biggrin.gif) No offense! Just some tips but I guess I too lack these. wink.gif

Hope that helps.

Then You made us two (at least), I just hate when guitar-players looks like monkeys jumping round and shreds without no sense at all. (although Vai has made some really good playing as well)

I think it was pretty good. You played nicely, and I sense you had a bit of stage freight. On the stage you really need to let yourself go and be yourself. This may be difficult at times, but after a while you discover you can be yourself more than anywhere else than on stage.

I don't have too much to say. I just say that you played very well and I really liked. Bravo!
And don't worry too much about being nervous in front of the audience.
The practice will make perfect wink.gif

laugh.gif but don't you think, at the retirement home it's a good feeling to know that all women in the audience wants you.

i like it a LOT ruben, i think your stage presence is just fine for the place you are playing, for me it is VERY hard to play in front people i know biggrin.gif, but when i'm playing a gig i'm loco onstage, i'm really being myself 100% but i think i might be a little crazy.

very good playing!

Well just for you Guys to see my evolution from past year to now Check out my previous audition ( I think It was a really bad xD )

Here it is:
Attached File  Audi_ao_2009.mp4 ( 22.97MB ) Number of downloads: 65



the quality is really bad ( it was recorded w/ mobile phone ) but still you can see there was a lot more stage fright backthen (and I wasn't even playn alone ) so to me this year there was huge improvement but let me know what you think.. smile.gif

Great work, hey you might of been nerious but you didn't show it by standing static.
Looked good moving around a bit and showing some real good smooth feeling and emotion into it.
