Guitar Moves

I’ve been watching a couple of these while eating lunch in front of my computer. I’m not really sure if I have learned anything new but I kind of like the format, very relaxed.

Chest Fever

Chest FeverAraceli and I have a gig tomorrow night, Wednesday 16th of April, with our band Chest Fever. This time we are actually headlining and are going to do a 1 hour set in 33 I 45. We will start around 20.30 so if you are in town and feel up for some Swedish/Spanish country sung in English then please come by. This will be our fifth gig and I have actually managed to never perform twice with the same guitar. Tomorrow I will bring my beloved Morris W-40 and maybe an old Greco Telecaster for some country twang.

Movie of the day

Heartworn Highways poster

One of my favourite music documentaries is Heartworn Highways. It’s based around the whole Texas scene with Townes van Zandt, Guy Clark, Rodney Crowell, and Steve Earle, just to name a few. I thought it would be possible to find the documentary in full on Youtube but apparently not so you will have to buy it or download it. These are my two of my favourite clips from the movie. The first one because it shows how awesome session musicians were back then, check out Albert Lee on guitar playing a 335, recorded at Creative Workshop in Nashville. The second clip is because it shows how truly talented Townes van Zandt was as a songwriter.

Daniel Romano

I have recently fallen in love with Daniel Romano, well not in a gay way, he just happens to do exactly what I would like to do. When I discover artists like this I never really know what to feel. Should I slap him in the face out of pure jealousy or just shake his hand and say, well done? Everything is so perfect, the songs, the band, his voice, the guitars, the suits, even down to the artwork. Well he seems like a nice guy and I really like what his doing so I have decided to just take off my hat and bow.

I Met the Walrus
In 1969, a 14-year-old Beatle fanatic named Jerry Levitan snuck into John Lennon’s hotel room in Toronto and convinced him to do an interview. 38 years later, Levitan, director Josh Raskin and illustrator James Braithwaite have collaborated to create an animated short film using the original interview recording as the soundtrack. A spellbinding vessel for Lennon’s boundless wit and timeless message, I Met the Walrus was nominated for the 2008 Academy Award for Animated Short. Taken from Rockheap
