Lee DeWyze premiered his new music video for the song “Fight” today. “Fight” is a heart-warming story that was conceived and directed by DeWyze. He explains, "When making this video, I wanted something people haven't seen before. I wanted it to be whimsical, heart-warming, funny, and visually exciting. The song in itself is an anthem for fighting for whatever it is you believe in, and a song everyone can relate to. I hope everyone gets lost in the music, the lyrics, and the magic of the video. Enjoy!!"

The Rimpitch is a unique tuner that attaches to the sound hole of an acoustic guitar. It provides an incredibly convenient viewing angle, since its tuning meter appears within the player’s natural line of sight when looking down at their guitar. Its compact size and slim profile in the sound hole offer a discrete tuning experience.
