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.

My YouTube Tribute Video Tutorial To David Bowie And Freddie Mercury

David Bowie, on of the most inventive musicians and singers in history passed away recently. I felt that a tribute video was in order. While trying to decide which of his songs to do, I realized that he had done a duet with another great singer and musician who has also left us, Freddie Mercury of Queen. The song was “Under Pressure” by Queen featuring David Bowie. While putting it together, a fellow Youtuber contacted me and mentioned a vocal only version of the song on YouTube. I decided to use the audio and play acoustic guitar along with it to create an acoustic version of the song. It was an amazing experience, because it took hours to learn the guitar parts and match them to the vocals. This was very hard to do because without the drums and other instrumentation it was difficult to keep time and stay in sync with the voices. At times it felt like Freddie and David were in the room with me. I hope with all my heart that they might be pleased with my version of “UNDER PRESSURE UNPLUGGED” With Freddie Mercury, David Bowie and Eric Blackmon On Guitar. Rest in peace guys.
