Subject: RE: I need some honest advice
Hi there

I think you might be slightly selling yourself short. It looks like you can actually play some pretty good fingerstyle guitar when you want to. I would concentrate on getting one good complete performance of one really good song, sylishly shot, with close-ups on fingers on fretboards, different angles, close-ups on facial expressions and profiles etc.

I'm not saying 'ditch the comedy stuff', or 'pretend to be someone you're not'. But I think you might be better off leading with a supposedly 'serious' performance, even if it's humorous material: one song that really gets you across as a consummate musician, and singer, rather than an entertainer who sings comic songs.
