    You should do Inside the Fire by Disturbed

  9. Avenging Angel 88

    Thank you!

  10. One suggestion. At the start of each video, please tell your audience what effects, if any, you're using and maybe even the settings. The type amp may be helpful also. Not a huge deal on most songs but some (like this one that starts with a kind of "creepy" clean guitar that morphs into a huge distortion) it would be helpful. Maybe you can even wangle some pedal endorsements out of the deal! Thanks!
