    I also want to include this video as an entry to @jumpinjeff ‘s “Funny Guitar Face Challenge”.🤣 I’ve been meaning to do something like this for a while.

      Thanks @stevieblues for taking the time to watch my video performance. I was just trying feel the the beat of the back track while playing, and you saw the visual results 😱

    Nice improv Bill_Brown! You really got into the groove there! Nice quakers on the notes too.

    Very nice. I like the up the neck stuff.reminded me a little of Bill Withers “Ain’t no sunshine when you’re gone”

      Thanks for listening (and watching) @Mrfredsporty , When I did the bend on the 17th fret hiE string, I backed off slightly because I didn’t want to risk breaking the string😱🎸

        yes I understand. Life with a guitar can be very dangerous.🙃

    Really good…especially the bends and vibratos. Wish I could get my picking thumb to behave that well.

      Thank you for watching @bugmeist 👍 I appreciate the kind words. I stopped playing with a pick (for the most part) earlier this year, so when I played single notes, the thumb was naturally taking the lead. I’ve now developed a callus on the side of it from using it so much🤣🎸😎

    Sweet! Tasty choice of notes; using the vibrato and bends; bluesy. Well done!

    Great sound, Bill! Love that you used a metronome. It’s a great assist with timing…

      Thank you @Marquita . I don’t want to disappoint you, but I didn’t use a metronome, just my foot and the beat of the backing track. If you heard one in the background, it was Tony using a percussive beat 😉

        You did well regardless of who was keeping time… a gnome or a foot… haha…

      Thank you @charlie_d for taking the time to listen (and watch)🙏 For me, the backing track was simple and had a slow and easy (blues) flow, giving enough time for each musical phrase to breath (vibrato & all). 🎸🤘
