    solo (2X through verse chorus or whatever form)
    Big Emotional verse/chorus
    outro

    Now with 5 tunes, that's a bit of work. Good news is that the progressions will be similar; or related, and you will become an expert on these 5 tunes. In a relatively short time, you will be able to break down other songs you love quickly with great comprehension. Keep a journal or music notebook. MEMORIZE.

    Anyway (similar to the American Idol shows I watched 10 years ago) prep your video by playing your Expert songs 10X through; paying attention to FEEL, and not Technique. You will NEVER be perfect on the technique, but you can still CARRY THE SONG LIKE A BOSS.


    Good luck; America Needs You.

    I used to be someone......


    BTW..I don't know what you mean 4 and 6s.????

    I have never played a 5 string bass or an acoustic bass that looks like a guitar.

    I only play 4-sring basses.

    I meant acoustic guitars when I said 6

    So I was finally able to aquire a short example of my weak skills on the Gee-tar to share.

    Some weak excuses, before hand.....

    1. Was not playing my own Guitars. This jam was spur-of-the-moment, was with people i'd never met, and I was playing someones elses out-of-tune Floyd-Rose Ibanez thing. I'm more a hardtail PRS guy myself.

    2. I am a really bad guitar player. A hack. Lazy and never practice/bothered to learn.

    3. I had not picked up a guitar for ~1 year prior to this jam.

    4. Please ignore the seriously wrong (and loud) note hit early on. It gets (slightly) better.

    Congrats; you broke your cherry; you legitimized this thread as the OP, and NOBODY DIED.


    Don't stop now; you WANT to do this; it will work out. You'll become a better player as well.



    Sincerely,

    It wasn't a lack of desire to share (or embarass myself, tbqh). Simply had to get it online was all, took longer than I expected to figure it all out.

    I know it's bad, but feedback would be....ah, who am I kidding, it's all going to be jokes. I know it. You know it.

    I was proud of it, at the time.
