    Here is my first try recording with Audacity. I used my Blackstar Amp and Fender Strat. I'm gonna have to send my fingers to the gym to get any better at this one.

    Very nicely done.  Time will be your gym.  It only takes playing it over and over that it will eventually become comfortable.  Keep up the good work!!

    Sounds good! I'm working on Hideaway and Mary's Lamb, and playing this and Blues in A every day, and my fretting hand cramps all the time. Just have to hang in there! Keep it up!  :)

    That sounded to me like your fingers have been working out!  The only thing I would suggest is to be consistent with the staccato but it sounds really good, and you seem to have mastered Audacity. I have to say that your playing always sounds very clear and deliberate.  ...and a nice tone from your strat.

    On the chord transitions you are staying in rhythm even if there is a bit of a flub , that's important, especially for playing with others.

    Oh- and this had no backing track and the rhythm was solid.
