    Heres mine, about 12 years ago.l was just figuring **** out, 50 lbs lighter, and thought l knew what l was doing lol..... Looking forward to hear yours, as lm often inspired by rough cuts and beginner players as they tend to do interesting ( mostly bad but sometimes cool, things) as a having a lack of skill really forces you to improvise. Thanks

    Oh dear, I'm going to regret this. Anyway, this is from 2011 (when I joined ST) and I had not played since the 1980s and had just bought this strat - a Fender CS Deluxe. I was very, very rusty and about 5kgs lighter, with a beard. Thankfully this video has had only four views. The only things that hasn't changed since then are the Yamaha monitors.



    EDIT: This is so embarrassing that I have to submit a video from one year later, which is slightly less embarrassing and at least demonstrates some progress.

    You guys sound good!

    These are my oldest ones in known existence. It's depressing listening to them because I realize that I'm no better now...

    Other than the crap i have recorded somewhere in the garage which now i want to find LOL this is the oldest thing i have readily available. This was around 1998 when I got my Yamaha MT4X - 4 Track cassette recorder. Its really boring but i thought i was on to something at the time. I was going through a phase with my Nylon string guitar.

    Don't do drugs kids
