Welcome Sherman.

Good job on fitting the singing in with your playing. Keep on practising to get the playing to be more steady, smoother.  Maybe try playing it slower with metronome to polish it and then speed up to the desired tempo.

Cheers

Yeah you right...when I listen to it it does feel like my tempo is bouncing around a little...the answer to every problem is practice...

thanks for responding...

Well you got me tapping my foot! You seem to be able to connect with the viewer. Bet you have good stage presence. You have confidence and you are relaxed. Good job!

Oh Sherman you brought a sweet smile to my face singing this. Keep practising with a metronome maybe. You look so relaxed playing and singing. Looking forward to hearing more from you and seeing you progress. Happy playing.

Catching up on last month's entries -

Nicely laid back / easy.
Try to make sure that laid back still has you playing to a steady tempo - sort out the occasional drifting and you'll be good.
