Joe Bonamassa Plays the Blues

I love Joe Bonamassa. He has a distinctive blues guitar playing style that is a mix of Gary Moore and Pat Travers – in my opinion. The thing about him is he kind of burst on the scene when he was about 12 years old as a prodigy, and now that he’s 31 his...

Brad Paisley – Country Guitar Shredder

If you’re not a country music fan you might now have heard much of Brad Paisley other than his top 40 hits. You may not realize what a monster guitar player he really is. He’s a rare country music star because he’s a country shredder! Nearly all of...

AC/DC Whole Lotta Rosie Live

Here’s a live version of “Whole Lotta Rosie” when Bon Scott was still in AC/DC. It’s so incredible to see Angus Young play, because it’s hard to believe that he can play so well why gyrating all over the stage, headbanging, shaking his...

French Kid’s Hendrix Medly Kicks Ass!

Here’s a young guy from France that’s just tearing up his own Hendrix medly on YouTube – on a Tele no less! You can tell he’s playing through a POD or something, ’cause he’s got the perfect Hendrix sound for sure! This medly is very...

12 Year Old plays Eruption

This 12 year old guitar player plays “Eruption” and his original song “Break Out”. I don’t know if this is some kind of talent show or what, but it looks like he has a little cheering section to be sure. It’s not perfect, but the...

Deep Purple “Burn” Video

One of my favorite songs is Deep Purple’s “Burn”. It’s a song that hasn’t been performed live since 1992, you don’t hear on the radio a lot. Now, for all you young guitar slingers – here’s a little history lesson. You...

Van Halen Backing Track Disaster

Here’s a great YouTube video I came across on Create Digital Music where the stage tech’s (or board op) really, REALLY screwed up! The song was Van Halen’s famed “jump”, and the keyboard intro was to be played as a backing track on tape...

Van Halen plays for Les Paul 1988

For all of you young bucks that never saw this – here is Eddie Van Halen playing at a “Les Paul and Friends” show in 1988 (now some 20 years ago). This would have been about in the prime of Van Halen only 4 years after their 1984 album, that is...

Van Halen Frankenstein

Fender released the Van Halen Frankenstein replica in 2007 and this video is from the NAMM show where Eddie Van Halen talked about it and then performed. This was such a crazy video for me to watch, the quality is good because it was posted on YouTube by Fender...
