Good job! I like your left hand technique, but my question is, "Do you practice using your pinky?" I know a lot of great rock & roll guitarists don't use their pinky when they play, but I think that if you learn using all four fingers the fretboard will be much more accessible. Who knows, maybe you will discover jazz, or want to play some chromatic stuff like Eric Johnson or Joe Satriani, and then you will need that pinky working! Better to learn now.

Shinedown is a great band. I didn't know they had a new album out. I'll buy it without even listening to it first...

Again, well done, and keep rockin"!

I do use my pinky but honestly this song is extremely easy to play. There isnt much movement so I just dont see the need to use the pinky. Im really not into Jazz but im sure my music tastes will evolve eventually. You wont be dissapointed with The Sound of Madness its a great album.

It is pretty simple. Open-C tuning is a wonderful thing.

Anyway, keep up the good work.

How did you hear of them? For me it was a late late show with Seth Green (Dr. Evil's son, Scott.) The host asked him what kind of music he listened to and he said, "Some friends of mine in a band called Shinedown just got signed, and I'm telling you folks, this band rocks! Go buy the record."

So I did, and I've turned quite a few people on to them.

Back when they were newish they were playing out here on a radio station, listened to them since.

Not quite up to my #1 spot, but probably my 2nd favorite band.

Oh, and you're pretty up with the times there Eracer.

Not bad for a middle-aged white dude with no rhythm.

I heard about them from my dad. Another band for you to check out is Black Tide, their lead singer is 15 years old and even though their lyrics are pretty simple and they suck live their studio versions kick ass. Specifically listen to shockwave by them.

I'll check them out. But I've got to say - one of the worst things that has happened to the music industry in the past 10 years or so is the creation of bands that sound killer on a studio-produced track, but suck live. Music has gotten so over-produced and musicians rely so much on studio effects, back tracking and overdubs that they simply don't know how to JAM. I saw The Who live last year, and they kicked ass, because they are a band. I saw Kid Rock (I dug his album) and he absolutely sucked, because he's a studio musician.

If you can't make it happen live, then you aren't really a band. JMHO.

Part of why I love Hurt so much, I really liked them, but once I saw them live, it was just never the same they were so good.
