One man's quest to suck less at guitar. And, yeh, I know the down-strokes are not swept. The upstrokes are cleaner and smoother, though not perfect at all. Remember -- I'm not holding myself up as a teacher, just sharing results of a personal challenge. And, yep, I'm aware that one has to practice very, very, very slowly on this, so thanks to everyone reinforcing that advice. Michaelangelo makes that point extremely clear himself.
As for the conspiracies about whether I played this myself or not -- um, well, enjoy yourselves!

Thank-you Marco, Michael Angelo and everyone who has offered so much helpful advice. Keep rocking.
