georgia err I mean guitars on my mind. some loud and fast covers by others followed by some masterful advice by mr knopfler himself. not sure if mr ray would approve of these covers but here they are in all their awesomeness…

 

 

Fast and loud music isn’t always first on my list but this wild guy Leo is absolutely insane and yet amazingly talented at the same time.  To open tonight’s theme a cover of sultans of swing…

 

I remember listening to this next song as a kid in the early 80s.  I don’t know if it’s the nostalgia effect or it’s unique blend of notes but I still find it catchy.

 

This is one of the first covers I saw by this silly guy.  It still cracks me up…

 

So I like KFC as much as the next person but this guy is just a bit creepy but he sure knows how to make the guitar talk.

 

Looks like this guy has been playing guitar and I mean this particular guitar for a long time or maybe he’s just a thrifty guitar shopper but either way this is quite nice…

 

Not much to say about this next musical duo but wow…

 

And the last of the main electric covers to demonstrate just how versatile the electric guitar is that it can even do classical.  That tacobell err I mean Pachelbel guy’s song never sounded so good.  Good thing music is the universal language because this vid isn’t in English…

 

Alrighty then, so we’ve seen plenty of weird guitar players but how about weird guitars…  Slowin’ it down a bit but this has a good sound to it and there are many other strange instruments out there like the ones in the next two vids.  Oh baby it’s a wild world.

 

Ok so maybe not fast and loud but I figured a transition video with an acoustical would be nice before getting to the coaching video from the master…

Here is a cover of an Alan Walker song from which I will post some of his videos in a later post.  My daughter has been playing guitar and piano since before she could talk I think and this was one of the earlier songs she learned on guitar and later on piano.  Her style is slightly different than this guy’s but they sound very similar and due to the strumming involved and other complexities this isn’t a terribly easy song to learn.

 

And last but in no ways least some sound advice from a guitar guru…

I hope to get back in the swing of things and post more to the blog.  However, I’ve been grappling with some mean medical issues and a fleeting blip called time…
