Well, for your next video, I'd suggest showing us your guitar instead of your mug. No offense, but kind of pointless to just watch you the whole time without seeing your guitar & what you're playing, you know?

Also, the vocals were a little loud, almost clipping out at times, but other than that, I thought you did a very good job and I liked the echo effect you had on, a nice Jerry-esque touch.

wasn't really the foremost thought when I made it.. but I'll see about angleing the camera down a bit more next time so people can see the lead and stuff. thanks for the compliment
I think I kinda fucked up posting this in the musical theory section.. so I'll just add that it's a pretty basic lead on the 12th fret using the 2nd string and sliding up to it to start.
