Guitar Republic's "Funky Sexy Republic" — Video Finds

Here’s a kick ass performance by the acoustic guitar masters of Guitar Republic, “Funky Sexy Republic.” I can’t stop watching! Employing every technique you can think of—tapping, plucking, bowing, strumming, and more — this trio of Sergio Altamura, Stefano Barone and Pino Forastiere give it their all!

Ten Easy Acoustic Guitar Holiday Songs

It’s that time of year. Trimming the tree, sipping on egg nog, and of course, strumming a few tunes with family and friends. Many of the songs we love to sing and play this time of year of simply arranged. And you can dig right in and play ‘em to your heart’s content. Here are some of our faves that are easy to play at the drop of a hat (a Santa hat that is!).

The Vespers' “Another’s Arms” — Exclusive Acoustic Video

Today we’re sharing an exclusive acoustic video from The Vespers. It’s a cover of Coldplay’s “Another’s Arms” done up just fine. Their interpretation of this sad but lovely song features some lacy mandolin and acoustic guitar strums and gentle harmonies.

Requiem's Acoustic "Sticks and Stones and Her Lovely Bones" — Video Premiere

Here’s a super cool acoustic version of Requiem performing their new song “Sticks and Stones and Her Lovely Bones.” I love it! Strip away the ten ton blast and this cool vibe still remains. As a matter of fact, it almost has an Elvis Costello-esque vibe.

I’ve been lucky enough to check out this gorgeous track from Joshua Radin’s new album, Onward and Sideways. Here Radin pairs with Sheryl Crow for a lovely version of his song “Beautiful Day.”

Patrick Sieben's "B-Side Track" Live Acoustic Video Premiere

Larkin Poe’s Megan Lovell Lap Steel Video and Exclusive Interview

I went to see a band play the other day. I had no expectations…just a fun night out. But hoo-yeah, this band kicked ass around the corner and back. It was the sister-lead Larkin Poe, a band that combines rock, blues, Americana, folk and a few other elements for a rollicking set of originals. Sad, sassy, sweet. Their stories were fun and full of life.

Boss VE-2 Vocal Harmonist Pedal — Gear Demo

I was lucky enough to get my hands on the Boss VE-2 Vocal Harmonist pedal (or my feet?). And once I tried it, I really didn’t want to part with it. Aside from adding cool vocal harmonies, reverb and delay to my voice, well, it’s just fun. I can sound like a whole chorus now if I want to!

Jinx Premieres Acoustic-Tinged Hip-Hop Video for "Alive"

Here's a surprise in the best possible way! Jinx's new single "Alive" expertly combines hip hop, pop, and acoustic guitar for this ebulliently triumphant song. Clappin', slappin', rappin' and acoustic guitar. And some excellently positive lyrics. I simply love everything about it.
