Hi all ! :)

I am new on this boards, my firstname is Damien, 22 years old, I live in Lyon, France. Today, I have record a video cover of The Meaning Of Life, song from Ixnay On The Hombre with my Ibanez NDM1 Noodles.

I am reached of myopathy, and play guitar is very difficult for me (I must play in a strange way :D ) and I come to make some to you profit to have opinions of fans.

I hope that you will like that and that perhaps Noodles will pass by there also delivering its opinion him, thank you. :o

Sorry for my approximate English. ;)

Awesome work! If I have your permission I'll upload it on my site, www.offspringbootlegs.co.uk ?

Hi Idiot, no problem for upload on your site ;)

Nice one, I'll do that a bit later and get your video publicised a bit more on my forum !

How do you want me to credit you? Is something like "Mancasters - Meaning Of Live Cover" alright or do you want something else?

05-21-2006, 05:28 AM
Yeah, "Mancasters - The Meaning Of Life Cover" is a good title :D

05-21-2006, 05:33 AM

I've posted a link on my forum also!

You mean a banjo.

I found out what it is. It's called a "Steel" or "Lap" Guitar. It's played on a stand. A banjo is held.

Great job; welcome to the BBS...I hope you can share more covers sometime!

05-21-2006, 11:12 AM
For once, a cool n0000b :D

05-21-2006, 11:17 AM
yeah it reminded me of steel guitar, too.

I couldn't really tell in the video, but are you fretting the notes with only one finger? It really looked like that, which confused me because power chords require atleast 2 fingers. nice, though :)

I don't think you can call it a cover, though, when the cd is playing in the back, and you're only playing the guitar part. I don't know what you should actually call it instead, though, haha. So whatever. :p

05-21-2006, 11:47 AM
wow, am I the only one who can't watch this video???

this never happened to me before... strange

05-21-2006, 01:17 PM

05-21-2006, 02:00 PM

05-21-2006, 03:02 PM

Wow, your my hero. It's amazing how you, stricken with such a terrible disease, can play guitar like that. Welcome to the boards, and i hope in the future you will upload more videos.
