Hi, I really enjoyed your video, particularly the film interludes, which made me laugh. Very good.

you get a nice sound.

a couple of thoughts. you are playing "im in the mood for love' in C. The melody starts on the 3rd, your E, which you are playing.
NO F sharps.................... the run you stumbled on is just up the C scale, from the D.

If you learn a tune by ear and stumble. dont keep trying to get that note as well as the next 6. Find only the one you are struggling with, until your ear tells you 'ah, thats the one ' then consolidate up to that point until you know it. then move on.
More haste equals less speed.................................... add one correct note at a time, and consolidate.

ps just checked. there is a Bb in bar 5 ( ish ) of mood for love !!!!! :)

@The-Mikester you are going to fit in well here, brilliant. I didn't hear a note so many distractions...

I don't mind the man bun but really need to sort the hole in your jeans :)

I believe that is considered a fashion statement amongst the younger set J, apparently they are purchased with holes already present.

A bit of friendly advice.

Be careful with your choice of words. Some folks on here get very excited at the use of such words, and things can quickly get out of control.

Pants in this country are underwear :blush:.

best to refer to them as trousers or jeans.

I know from experience how important this is. Im Scottish and when I first came down here to live, I talked of troosers or breeks.

Oh how they laughed. I learned to fit in and now speak as posh as the next man, ye ken :).

PS welcome. you will fit in well, here.

Would you care to rephrase that?
Even with sexy hairstyle and provocative clothing you're not my type and you'll make some of the ladies jealous.

That must be recent (?) development, pants always meant trousers, underpants being underwear.
We were laughing at your kilt.

No, they were laughing at the spindly little legs emerging from the bottom of my kilt.

Of course there were never any pants under that bonny kilt.

No, nothing worn under there. Everything was in fine working order. Boom, Boom :(
