    Hi all.  My first ever recording.  Audacity and my Fender Mustang Fuse software were a snap to figure out.  I even figured out how to include backing tracks with my playing.

    Anyway, here is my best attempt so far at lesson 30.  Been at it for almost two weeks now.  I kind of messed up the last bar to end it, and I still need to work on some timing.

    My toughest thing so far is to stop the bend from ringing out when I move on to the next notes.  Any tips would be greatly appreciated on how to kill bends.

    So, here is me playin' lesson 30.  Feedback greatly appreciated.

    I am also working on lessons 1-4 now, and should be ready to upload some of them soon.

    Thanks for listening!

    Nice Job Jeff. As far as muting bends, I do it differently in different situations. For this song, I use the side of my thumb (maybe the knuckle) on my picking hand.
