The first time I heard Dark Side of the Moon I was unimpressed. Hey, I was 16 years old so my brain hadn’t fully formed yet. I’d been playing for almost a year and I was into Deep Purple and Black Sabbath which was the type of music that would appeal to an ADHD sort of guy. This music just seemed so… slow. Mind you, I’ve always like ballads but these were not ballads by any stretch and it just didn’t work for me at the time. It would be Animals that got me into Floyd and upon revisiting Dark Side of the Moon I gained a real appreciation for “slow” music which couldn’t be characterized as a ballad.
This is my first real effort at a guitar video since I covered SRV Pride and Joy about… eight years ago. The mix isn’t the greatest and I’m feeling out how to make the process work and look decent.
Obviously, I’m not there yet. I’m painfully aware of the camera so it may take some time to get used to that element. My head is cut off for a reason. lol! However, I hope you don’t get distracted by the bit of leg I’m showing here. I really need to work on my video “mise en scene.”
Any suggestions or criticism is welcomed by this guitar student. Thanks for your time.
