Angus Lamb: win a GUITAR ends 30-04-2010

Angus Lamb says:
Ironically I've literally just received my new guitar today, a Godin LGX-SA. It's an amazing guitar, but I'll save that for another video...

Anyway, here's my entry for Lee's fantastic competition, nothing much, just the one take.

I'm using the bridge pickup on my Godin through Guitar Rig 4, for those interested.
