Well, maybe, maybe not… Anyway, here’s our take on Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros’ ‘Home’. Enjoy!
It’s been a great year for me. Sure, it’s had its ups and downs but that’s reality. You won’t tame the sea but you can steer your own ship and ride it out. Here’s to hoping you find the following sea. For a little inspiration, here’s a video we did recently. Go ahead, sing along you know the words.
Here’s another video from the last flute/guitar session. This is my transcription/arrangement of Israel K’s rendition/arrangement of ‘Somewhere Over The Rainbow/What A Wonderful World’.
December for me is usually a time when things have slowed down. New students wait until after Christmas to start and the wedding season has been over for a while. Like I said, ‘usually’. This year has seen the wedding season continue well into December (the last one is next weekend…maybe). A few more new students have come on board not content to wait until the new year. In the midst of this, I managed to do another A/V recording session this time with flutist, Melanie Chirignan. I’ll roll these out in the weeks to come. For now, enjoy my arrangement of ‘All You Need Is Love’.
Here is a video of an arrangement I did a couple of years ago for a wedding. It features the lovely and talented Celeste Cumming on cello. Enjoy!
I’ve recently finished editing a series of videos featuring music I’ve arranged for weddings played in the past year. They feature the wonderfully talented Celeste Cumming on cello and myself on guitar. I’ll be rolling them out for the next few weeks. Enjoy!
I’ve switched roles a bit and moved behind the camera. Here we have Bill Johnson performing his song ‘Older Now’. A Vietnam veteran of the USMC, Bill and I have worked together for several years on his songwriting. His experience and perspective provide him with an insight that few of us will ever know but need to hear.
Last week, a student brought in a song that she really wanted to learn. I thought I’d share a little bit of what goes into that song. Included in the video discussion are tips on capos, barre chords and strumming.
This week we’re talking more about the C major scale, a few more songs and some new chords. Within this video, I’m sharing some tips on getting the technique to read and play.
As a supplement to the class, I’ve created a video review of the concepts that are included in week 1. For the beginner, there’s a ton of information. I thought it might be helpful to have a reminder of the ins-&-outs.
