Not really a song, a game Theme song Final Fantasy 8 Balamb. Supposedly easy but I still can't get it perfect lol.

EDIT (Changing url, posted a better version)-->

I'll re-post the same song whenever I get better. <--- (Edit... better version posted)

I'm also going to post Patterns in The Ivy by Opeth in a few days Now that is going to sound really ugly...

Advice needed, my picking hand, fretting, posture.

Almost three months. I'ts really weird I think I screwed up my picking hand coordination. I always have to check both arms to see if their going to be accurate. So I can't fully concenctrate on the fretboard If my picking hand screws up then my fretting hand screws up aswell.

It seems as all that needs work is your rythem, try using a metronome whilst practicing, but for 3 months that was pretty good.

Pretty nice mate. as previosly said, it could be worse, but it could also be better. Really listen to the song and nail the timing! I look forward to hearing another cover from you to see your improvements!

BTW, is this tab from this site? I must be playing it wrong if so

Seriously though, a very enjoyable relaxing piece of music. Nice job and work on it

Cool thanks for the replies it's helping my motivation more.

As I said earlier I would post a new video of Patterns in the Ivy by Opeth.

I played it slow but I still screwed up, if you guys are interested you can check it out here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=srHC-beaYjk

I was going to record FF8 Balamb again but I'm too tired. I need to work on my picking accuracy >.<

I had a look at the tab i *think* your playing, and it looks like it might be easier to finger pick it. Its always useful to learn this, and in this song it may look like the easier alternative to picking with a pleck

I actually tried finger picking for a few days (I also tried to learn classical gas and gave up at it lol...it would be a waste of time for me...too hard I think). Maybe a few more months...

I was having a debate on my own because I wanted to play the electric after I learned the basics on an acoustic first.

BTW my Ibanez should be arriving in a few days
