Any Way You Want It - Journey - Fingerstyle Acoustic Guitar

Brazil - Aquarela do Brasil - fingerstyle guitar

Brazil - Aquarela do Brasil - fingerstyle guitar

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?

From Me To You, The Beatles

"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.
