LOL...OK now the explanation, and i will write it properly for all the grammar nazi's out there ;). Now, the lead guitar is all improvisation and i only started improvising 2 weeks before the event...2 WEEKS!! Also don't tease our uniforms, we were forced to wear school uniform :D. Thirdly im only in year 8 playing for 2 1/2 years.
Next, I accidentally turned down the volume knob on my guitar while i was doing the real solo, so it screwed me up :D. And this band was only FORMED (NEVER PLAYED TOGETHER BEFORE) 2 WEEKS before the event. So keep those in mind when your watching :P. We didn't have any singers either.
Its Rock And Roll - Led Zeppelin

During the time you're setting up to play, you should always have someone talk to the crowd, so that they're not bored, also so they don't think you're crap. (It happens)

The blues sounded good for only improvising for two weeks, just didn't suit that major distortion from your rhythm guitarist.

I could hear a few repeated solos, try to venture out of that "box" that you can see. To start, you know that the E (6th) string plays the same note as the A string when you play on the fifth fret. And so on with each other string apart from the B (2nd) string when it's only four frets.

By knowing this, move the notes you're used to in your box pattern around. This will give you a starting point in understanding how to play all along the fret board. When you've got the idea of it, learn the other positions in the pentatonic, and you should hopefully be able to tell how they relate.

It's also nerve racking when you first play in front of people, and you forget all that common stuff you can play in your room. This is the difference between bedroom guitarists who don't succeed and those who aren't afraid to make mistakes in front of the crowd.

The good thing to do though is to keep playing in front of people, perhaps even your family - pester them for it. Because it'll help out a lot.

We'll I think jazz said it when she said "it's nerve racking when you first play in front of people" When i was young in High school and my friend and drumer in the band (he was also a guitar player) got droped off for a day at a county park took two guitars and walked around all day playing for people that was probally my most enjoyable time as a guitar player cause your in there face, one on one playing to the people that want to hear you play, of course we made mistakes! at the end of the day no one cared,people make mistakes every day all the time....it makes you human.

This is the best part of the trip... the first gig!!! or was it? :D. How was it pager? Hands sweat?... well I had...

Ive spotted couple nice licks there. One thing if you wish my tips, try to keep things goin when improvising, especially in soloing, ive noticed there a few breaks middle of soloing, but thats okay... anyway as long as it fun and feel good... its worth of every frustrated practise lesson :D

nice job

Woah, I must be really anti-social in that case then! :D Well done anyways whether I am or not, I'd be nerve-racked on the guitar up front, I was fine doing that on my tuna can, harmonica and singing, but I'd be all like 'Ahhh' (as that seems to be all I can say for it!) on guitar.
