Hi Mr. Corey..

My first video playing acoustic blues here on Sonic Junction. Hope to get some tips from you, in order to improve my blues guitar.

Best regards

Bruno you play well here and your tempo is solid. I would suggest that you try playing with less force. It sounds like you are digging in a little too hard. You can experiment with playing the same tempo, only quieter. This will also give you a chance to put your voice out front and to work on it more. Keep it simple and u can't go wrong.
