    That's what I'm going for, never singing a note until recently isn't helping me right now. I'll work at it and make the best of it anyway.

    Oh boy haha, that's a long long time.. Don't even have a clue what I'll have for dinner tomorrow.

    Can't wait to improve more though and learn more tunes, sky's the limit, at least it feels like that to me right now

    I'm not that surprised about your progress. I picked up the guitar and within two years I was playing taverns in Eastern Canada. (I started at 18). It's a combination of dedication and natural talent IMHO. And not everybody can devote the time required as there are lots of distractions like girls, drugs, booze, partying, oh and I guess your job (or school). Just wait until you have kids - then all bets are off lol... You're progressing well, be loud and proud as you should be...

    I get what you're saying. for me it's the love I have for it that pushed me this far really.

    Thank you, means a lot really, I am trying to be as humble as I can, trying to not let it get into my head.. Although when I get on stage I'm everything but humble, I'm, as you say, "loud and proud".

    Thanks for the replies @ everybody, really made my day with these kind words, was a pretty ****ty day otherwise..

    For 10 months, that was pretty damned nice! You’ve got the Hendrix tone nailed too.

    Damn, that's a huge compliment for me! I tried hard to get a good sounding pickups/pedals and everything. The amp I'm playing on is some rental studio marshall, I don't think it's very nice sounding but I guess it's good enough.

    I started guitar three years ago. I’m 65 now and I’m still trying to get my pickup height adjusted.
    Nice playing.

    Great! I am of opinion that you're never too old to start, it's a great hobby anybody can enjoy.
    Yeah tell me about it.. Pickup height. I can never be pleased with it honestly, always feels a bit off in a way however I adjust it. It's great though how much you can tinker around with these small things and actually hear it make a difference

    You’re a natural. Really nice job keeping up with the changes in that song and the vocals to boot

    Hey, thanks! I'm really not happy with my vocals, I view them as terrible but I am pleased to hear some of the people in this thread don't particularly agree with that statement, gives me some hope.

    The guitar playing is pretty good. I've been playing for two years now and haven't tackled Hendrix, but you sound pretty good. Got the tone down forsure.

    Thank you!

    Yeah Hendrix can be pretty tough, when I started playing his music i realized not everything's in the notes you play and really most of the sound is in how you play those notes.

    Was really a relevation for me and changed my outlook on guitar playing.

    You just gotta have it in your hands to be able to even remotely recreate what he did.
