Hey guys biggrin.gif I know its been a very long time, years since I've regularly been here. But, here I am (will you send me an angel ?)

Just wanted to let you know, that, after years of playing guitar (JUST 3) I FINALLY GOT A GIG biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif Its on 21st of March. I really want to make my mark with this one, as a lead guitarist/vocalist. smile.gif

Now, the song we're performing is this classic



I got rhythm guitar as the job initially, but, over the weekend, I practiced, practiced, and learnt the final solo, and want to do the vocals smile.gif Singing this one, is tough. So, need help with that. Other than that, a few recordings with guitar pro backing me up as a band coming up soon. smile.gif Stay tuned. Cosmin, Let's go to my thread biggrin.gif

PS - We can't find a vocalist, and Russians have horrible English accents. So, my roommate encouraged me to be the vocalist, because, that was my intention in the first place.

Play with emotion. Playing with all technique and no emotion makes you boring. And most importantly, Make faces while bending.

Congrats, Yash! I've also been playing for 3 years, and I'm quite far from actually gigging with my current skills.

I feel the same to be honest Teo. BUT, I guess, the stage and the pressure makes you do great things. I learnt that solo so quickly. The song is pretty close to my heart, so, I play it with all the emotion I can. Play it, sing it. And, I guess that makes up. smile.gif

Make sure You'll have this gig recorded or at least a bunch of photos. Those moments in our lives are way more important than we think at the moment. I asure You that after next 15-20 years those recordings will be priceless for You smile.gif
