Revered roots music troubadour Seth Walker recently took up residency in New Orleans. Upon relocating to the Big Easy, the North Carolina-native completed his rounds of the Holy Trinity of southern U.S. music cities. His journey began in Austin where he fast became a staple of the Texas blues scene. He’d later shuffle off to Nashville where he’d absorb the cosmopolitan twang of its storytelling tradition.
I’ve always fantasized about playing the ukulele. I’m not sure why. Perhaps because it’s such a small and delightful instrument. Perhaps because when I watch someone like Jake Shimabukuro play one, it’s just so stunningly musical and inspiring. See what he has to say about ukulele and more!
Jason Kertson does an amazing job of performing on acoustic guitar. But with a twist. He’s playing two guitars at once! In this video Kertson taps out the rhythmic and melodic parts for Andy McKee's song "Drifting" off of the album Art of Motion.
You might think that ukulele is just a simple instrument perfect for strumming little ditties. I did. But Jake Shimabukuro proved me wrong! Perhaps best known for his renditions of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” and George Harrison’s “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” on ukulele, Shimabukuro can be described as no less than a master musician.
It’s always a pleasure to combine two loves into one project. For Sinner Sinners’ that goes double. French married couple Steve and Sam Thill write and perform together, and in this video they incorporate their love of skateboarding, with a musical bent.
My very first guitar was a nylon-string classical instrument. Since then, I’ve bought well over 100 other guitars, but none of them was a classical.
With the introduction of Cordoba’s C10 Crossover, I may have finally found the affordable classical guitar I’ve been looking for, and I’m sure many other electric and steel-string players will feel the same way.
We recently had the privilege of sitting down with renowned guitarist, songwriter, and co-founder of seminal rock act The Black Crowes, Rich Robinson. A superb musician and a great guy to chat with, we spent a few minutes talking about his upcoming solo release, The Ceaseless Sight, due out June 3 on The End Records.
Check out this solo acoustic performance from Wolverhampton, England’s Pete Kent. The composition is featured on Kent’s latest album, The Sands Of Time, which is available now. Prior to embarking on a solo career, Kent was a sought after session guitarist in the UK, so it's no surprise that his playing style is so fluid and well-rehearsed.
