    You don't need a forum to critique (or praise?) your performances to gain a sense of self-worth. Your music alone should do that. You're a much better player than I, but then again, so is everybody. Good luck and keep playin!

    I feel like I went to sleep, and woke up on April Fool's. Somebody pinch me.

    I think it would have sounded nicer if you had a better Mic and if there was some backing track behind it. If there was a backing track I could not hear it.

    Hard to say over the internet!!

    no there is no backing track. why would i want backing track if I want to evaluate my playing, backing tracks only mask up the whole thing.

    Remark about the mic is valid, I'll try to buy something more quality. But I do not even have a proper camer, that clip was taken by a common digital photocamera, and thats justa step above camera from comon celular phone

    But still the clips are good enough to evaluate my playing -dont you think?

    You're obviously putting time and effort into your playing, but you're still a beginner. Your tone quality and the way you kind of glide into and out of pitch give it away immediately.

    Not sure exactly what kind of feedback you're looking for. Last time you kind of lashed out at everyone, but here goes.

    Working on your breath support will help you improve your tone.

    Working with backing tracks can help you improve your sense of rythm and timing.

    It's difficult to measure "better or worse" than last time. You're still obviously a beginner, so it's kind of like asking to critique kids paintings. You can appreciate the effort that goes into them, but it's not fair to measure them against professional work.

    METRONOME! You need one badly. Notes don't just happen one after another. They have to be put in a context.
