    I can play clarinet. I can't rock out on that, though. :(  I own a guitar, but I'm too slow.

    I am frustrated because I can't play that much anymore, so I hit my prime about 10 years ago. I have a recording of me playing Voodoo Chile (slight return) with a solo at the end I don't even know how I pulled off. :lol  I would post it on my Soundclick but I don't think I can put covers on there.

    Oh and to the OP that is some impressive playing, I wish you could here the rythem just a little more too, because it sounds like it works really well.

    Alright here it is. It's like 12 years old, the drummer and I were kinda just screwing around, I knew the intro but not much after that so we just kinda improvised. Nothing too great, just some parts towards the end that I don't think I could do again. Atleast not right now.

    Oh, I wouldn't say that. There's some really awesome rhythm chops in there, though I'd say there's also a bit of clipping or something going on in the recording process that could be worked out. But the basics of good playing is there.

    Good stuff everybody.

    Well aware, like I said, none of it was recorded well. I don't have any good equipment for that. Gonna work that out when I can!

    "basics of good playing" almost feels like an insult :(  I know you didn't mean it that way though

    Hey man it ain't all about speed, it's about feel! As long as you have good vibrato, some nice tone control, and great emotion in your playing, you're set, no matter what tempo you're at. All of that stuff is the actual "hard" part of playing music that resonates with people. Anybody can pick up a guitar and learn how to play intricate shit after practice, but there's so much more to it than being able to play all the notes, you know?
