Into The Dark

A one-take wonder...you can probably tell :D There are some bung chords, but I've only been playing guitar for four months now, so you'll have to forgive me. I would've tried it again, but my left arm is about to drop off from fatigue (I've been playing a *lot* this week!). I think you might have to download it too...it's not streaming for some reason. maybe because it's an m4a file. I have no idea what the fuck I'm talking about.

Into The Dark

Oh yeah, the song is by Ben Lee, from his album Awake Is The New Sleep.

PS The guitar is an Epiphone dreadnought acoustic from around 1970, with light gauge strings which are in dire need of a change.

The timing is pretty dead on. Now that was a pretty weak starting compiment, but rest assured, it's all around good! The singing is nice, the guitar is played with feeling and is lively.

The chords all sort of run into each other (you should learn to touch your fingers on the strings only slightly between some of the chords to mute them in an effort to accent the chords you do play and stop the ringing open strings). Apart from that, you're a talented musician and it was very cool to listen to.

Oh and you shouldn't have been elsewhere Friday night when Brendan, me and everyone else were out in the city!

cool thankyou for the tip :)

*sigh* I know...I would have loved to have been there. Brendan said it was really fun. But I was working as usual...I really need to find a job that doesn't eat up my weekends, but that's the only time I have to work lol
