Default 1st Post: You Can Close Your Eyes - Instrumental

I recently started to record some sound samples as a way to listen back to my playing in an attempt to find where I might make some improvements.

I've never posted in Show and Tell before but since my goal with making recordings is to improve I thought I might as well post and seek constructive (or otherwise) criticism.

Here is a quick recording of "You Can Close Your Eyes" on my David Flammang GC57.
I was surprised how hitting that record button made me so self conscience. It was difficult getting a decent take. I suppose that extra awareness in and of itself makes recording yourself a valuable exercise.
