Jack Woodman : *For more questions or chatting, text me in instagram* ( ) I decided to answer the *most frequent questions* : 1) Yes, I learned a lot of other songs as well, you can check some of them on my YT channel or Instagram. But I kept coming back to the same song to track my progress and clearly see how my performance of the same song will change over time. 2) For those who say year is too long, and he achieved the same progress much faster and my playing is still weak - I totally agree with you. I'm not calling myself a great player, I know that my technique is way too far from professional and I need to work on it. I'm just saying that I made a huge improvement over myself, that's it, I'm not competing with anybody. If you play much better, and learned much faster - Cheers! Respect!) 3) For those who say year is too fast, that's funny how critics can be absolutely the opposite in claims))) But anyway, if you don't believe I was so bad at the beginning, you can check my old videos on my YT channel or instagram. If you think I cheated with solo in the end, you can check out this take ( ) with sound from cam and without any editing. 4) For those who ask do I have a teacher. No, I'm self-taught, but I have a friend of mine, who played guitar for a long, and he helped me by pointing on my mistakes. 5) My gear: $50 Noname Chinese guitar and I’ve bought it for $25 from its previous owner with all stickers on it. Vox ac4 amp. Marshall Jackhammer dist pedal. Thank you guys for support and all that kind words, I really appreciate that, and it inspires me to move further! Rock on, mates!!! *For more questions or chatting, text me in instagram* ( )

Will Detilli : Awesome!

Oveja Negra : This is awesome, truly inspiring. Having said that... 1 human year is like 10 cat years, so I’m wondering if at this point that poor kitty is sick of listening the same tune over and over and over and over... 😅 I’ll pray for your mental health, you adorable cat 🤠

Dominik Holdas : But can he play smoke on the water?

Joe Webb : I was trying to think up a pun for your feline friend. METALLICAT is the best I could do. P.S. I'm sorry you had to read this.

Tom Cieminski : How can you even dislike this? This man worked his ass off for something he wanted for a whole year and plays the song like a badass now. If people always had that kind of dedication, the possibilities would be endless.
