    sitting easy

    I am well into BGU but going back to BBG so I don't miss anything. If I add too much "sugar" don't hate me.

    Nice job David. The gain added some nice "sugar". Sounded like it was a little faster than 54 bpm? I learned it at 54, but now play it at 60 bpm.

    I know it was a little faster. Even at that I started to get ahead of the click track and had to hold back a bit

    and here's the acoustic 12-string version. It's 64 bpm and I'm still rushing it in places

    Really enjoyed that David

    Very inspiring.. I even got the manual out and watched Griff's lesson/video!
    (got the course ages ago when there was a 40% discount but not to do for myself as such)
    then I had a go at it today and it was fun! (sounding awful though I'm ashamed to say)
    great diversion/escape from what I generally practice though!
    I'm adding this one to my schedule...

    I think your 2 takes were very nice (the 12 string version is "annoyingly" nice) ;)
    I'm sure you'll be of great help to anyone who is doing this course!
    From your previous help to me, and various posts I have seen, it seems you have a knack at explaining/resuming "music things" in a "simple" manner and that's "priceless" IMHO

    Hope many benefit from this :)

    Dig the hint of breakup you’re getting on that first clip. And still kept it clean. I need to work on mine a little more to get it to where you are in terms of timing and speed. Nice job!
