    Thanks guys- I appreciate your helpful messages. I had a recital on Sunday, the day after the talent show. I played a HARDER piece, Asturia/Leyenda, and pretty much aced it. My problem with Classical Gas was that I started off way too fast and w...(more)

    Ugh- I sucked. I started off perfect, but in the middle, after where the orchestra played, I started playing really fast and the audience started applauding- I TOTALLY lost where I was so I just stopped for about 5 seconds, then regained my play...(more)

    Im performing for the school talent show tonight- I'm doing Classical Gas. It'll be fun- I'll walk out wearing a Metallica shirt, so everyone will think that I'm gonna blast out on an electric, then I'll pick up my classical and start fingerpick...(more)

    Heya, I've got a lesson on Classical Gas here on WN. Just type in Classical Gas in the lessons search, and it'll show up. That song is GREAT! I'm doing it for the talent show. Good luck, if you need any help, just mail me :-) Jake

    I just started taking lessons this month with a guy named Tom Hess- His band is "Hess". He's right up there with Yngwie. He takes Yngwies speed and techniques and blends them into a different sounding type of shred- instead of the church-from-he...(more)

    Im in the process of making a lesson, and one of my sequences HAS to be 20 measures for it to sound right, but I can't play certain sequences over 16 or 17 measures. Is there anyway to fix this? I press play and it just doesn't play! I've tried ...(more)

    I agree with you in some aspects, that praise shouldn't be repeated, but were not perfect. Every one here has at least one time in their life been a jerk, or cocky. Some of us more than others. I myself am very cocky, and try a lot not to be arr...(more)
