I started out 14 coming on 15 when i picked up a guitar, but out of sheer randomness, i recorded myself.. no knowlege of anything guitar techniques except for hearing Randy Rhoads on Tribute.

http://www.sendspace.com/file/k2aly8


It is up to 10 minutes in length, but listen to all of it if ya can, ya might recognise some things that appear in my later works.

I rank this as my worst ever instrumental ive ever done, but then again it was improvised and also i didnt know anything!


Simon

Hi Simon

That was really orchestral in the way you constructed that not to mention very atmospheric 8)

How unique too that as a teenage boy you wrote a piece in the constraints of what you knew and instead of visualising a piece where you did all the normal attempted teenage stuff like tapping and trying to impress etc

I actually thought it was a good piece. Right up my street :D

Thanks Matt :) I mean im 18 going on 19 now, and looking back at that peice, as much as i felt it is my worst peice, but it did set the foundations for what i do now on guitar.

Plus heres the clencher, I remember recording half an hour of footage, but edited it down to just 10 minutes, hense the title Solitude (Edit)

Thanks again Matt :D

Simon
