How I Learned Guitar Without YouTube Or A Teacher!

When I was a kid, I lived in a rural area where the last thing you would be able to find was a guitar teacher. This was the 60’s, so YouTube wasn’t even a dream back then. TV was black and white, had only 3 channels and no guitar teaching shows. So a little kid like me was on my own. I have posted a video on the method that I used at the time to solo and play chords to songs without any training. Use the link below to check it out!

How I Learned To Play Solo Guitar Without A Teacher And NO HELP

When I was a kid, the first thing I wanted to do on guitar was PLAY A SOLO. I was listening to artists like Booker T. & The MG’s, The Ventures, Dick Dale and others that featured up front guitar leads. I had no one around to help in this so I had to fend for myself. The video that I have posted on YouTube explains exactly how I went about going from knowing nothing about the subject to being able to play lead guitar in a band in just a few months without help from anyone.

Who Invented The First Electric Guitar?

That my friends, is the question I woke up with on my mind one morning. What exactly is an electric guitar, and who came up with it’s concept? What makes it work? I went on a quest to find the answers to these questions and compiled my findings in a short video that I have posted on YouTube on the EricBlackmonGuitar Channel!

FAKE Fender Jim Root Telecaster I Discovered In A Pawn Store Sells For $50

Back in November 2017, I posted a video on YouTube about a FAKE FENDER JIM ROOT SIGNATURE TELECASTER guitar that I found in a pawn store.

2-16-2018 Update! Since November 2017 when I first posted this video, the FAKE Jim Root Guitar featured here was sold and returned several times before the pawn store FINALLY acknowledged that it was a fake. They finally decided to mark it down to $50.00, and I helplessly watched a customer buy it as a FAKE REPLICA NO RETURN ITEM for $50 bucks.
I would have given 50.00 for it in a heartbeat! Missed it by that much!

Check out a comparison to a REAL ONE with the video link below!
