Welcome to my 482nd solo guitar video on YouTube, "As" by Stevie Wonder! With less than 20 solo guitar arrangements leading up to the 500 mark, it was inevitable that I would do at least one more Stevie Wonder. This one is a bit unusual in that it is among a handful of videos of mine that are "reloads", which is to say, I have performed and posted the previously on YouTube but I was so dissatisfied with the previous version that I felt I had to do a new one. I'm not all that crazy about this one either but I think at least it is a big improvement, lol!
Welcome to my 476th solo guitar video on YouTube, Brazil! The decision to play this was pretty random as I am on a two-song-long streak of “country“ songs, LOL, last week Spain, this week this. Who knows what next week will bring… It’s also an opportunity to feature some of my amplifiers. The absurd thing is that I don’t even use any of these anymore. My current main amplifiers are a Boss Katana 100, as well as two Acoustic amplifiers an AG60 and an AG30, plus a pair of powered speakers to throw more sound if and when needed. In addition I have a pair of Crate Limo 50W and a nice Peavey Bandit 65 that is permanently hooked up to my Fender Rhodes piano, and which sounds great! I also have several speaker cabinets off to the side. Time to liquidate some of these?
Welcome to my 475th solo guitar video on YouTube, Spain, by Chick Corea. I am really conflicted about this “arrangement“. There used to be a time when I put a lot of effort into creating sophisticated arrangements, each with its own unique voicings, fingerings and passages, sometimes reflecting their original, other times changing it completely but whatever the case, there was real time and effort involved.
Welcome to my 474th solo fingerstyle guitar arrangement video on YouTube, the theme from "I Dream of Jeannie" composed by Hugo Montenegro. Although you may think of this as just a ditty, this is a perfect jazz style composition and form, ripe for all kinds of improv...
"From Me to You" is a song by the English rock band the Beatles that was released in April 1963 as their third single. It was written by Paul McCartney and John Lennon. The song was the Beatles' first number 1 hit on what became the official UK singles chart but the second, after "Please Please Me", on most of the other singles charts published in the UK. "From Me to You" failed to make an impact in the United States at the time of its initial release. Instead, a 1963 cover version released by Del Shannon resulted in the song becoming the first Lennon–McCartney tune to enter the US pop charts.
