    Hello hello, it's been a while but I'm back with Tele Tuesday!

    This is a bit of a special one because it's the end of a cycle but more on that later.

    First of all, let me start by apoligizing to Neil Young because I really didn't do him justice with this one! I was practicing some new scales and decided to apply the theory to this song but the solos didn't come out as good as I hope.
    No big deal, it happens. I still recorded it and still uploaded it because, if anything, in the future I will get to look back to this and realize how much I improved.

    So, the song is Rockin' in the Free World by Neil Young and its a great one! Funny story about this song: the first time I heard it was actually the G3 version played by Joe Satriani, Steve Vai and Yngwie Malmsteen. That was back in the day when I didn't really care much about the classic and I was all about shredding! It's not that shredding is not cool and I still enjoy watching/listening to those guys from time to time, it's just that my taste in music changed a bit since then.

    But anyway, the song is pretty simple but still pretty rad! The main riff is super recognizable and it packs a lot of power, same as the chorus. The lyrics are pretty cool too, if you ignore some bits that don't make a whole lot of sense (but are important for rhymes, metrics and what not).

    And the solo... well, as I mentioned already, I completely butchered it hehehe
    I had no intention of playing it note by note what Neil plays on the recording but I still wanted it to sound better. Maybe next time!

    In the beginning of this post I mentioned that this is the end of a cycle so now it's time to say why.

    If you red my posts regularly, you may know that I bought a new amp! Yes! I got a new Orange Tiny Terror now so I will be retiring my old Meteoro Amp. It served me well but the time has come for me to move on!

    However, I recorded this video before the new amp was delivered meaning that (unless something unferseen happens) this is the last video recorded with that amp that I will be uploading. Hopefully the next ones will be recorded with the new Orange!

    The guitar is still the same, my loyal custom Tele!

    That's it for now, I hope you enjoy the video and see you nex time!
