Video of the new axe!

by Josh

EDIT: I removed the video so I could reshoot a replacement with better audio quality. Please bear with me while I fix this up. 🙂

This is the first time I’ve ever put a video of me playing guitar on YouTube. I made this video to show my new 1957 VOS Les Paul Custom Gold Top, specifically the differences in the pickups. I recorded this with my wife’s Nikon Coolpix camera, so the audio quality isn’t the best but it gets the job done. The amp I used is my Fender Blues Junior, and that’s about all there is to tell about it!

Video Lesson: Bell X1’s “Pinball Machine”…

by Josh

This video lesson is brought to you by my cousin, John.  He has been waging an ongoing war against poor Internet tablature and put this video together at my request.

I had been working on Bell X1’s “Pinball Machine” today using this tablature and noticed that while the chords sounded close there was a lot more intricacy to the actual song.  I asked John what he thought about the tablature, and he put this video together in only 45 minutes to help me get straightened out!

I still have to work on the strum pattern and getting the changing fingers more natural, but this certainly helped me on my way.  I hope you all enjoy it!

John specializes in a service that helps aspiring musicians get the unique sound of popular acts.  He’s also darned good at working out simple guitar lessons and tablature as seen above.  If you would like to contact him, you can do so by emailing him at this address.
