Student video: Clay Pigeons

Just finished a new video with my guitar student David Gray. He's been taking guitar lessons with me for not that long but he's already developing some fine fingerstyle technique.

I love the intro to this song. Originally by Blaze Foley, this song was also covered by the Avett Brothers. It's called "Clay Pigeons."

"That's All Right Mama" from 68 The Show with Eli Williams

Here's a new video of our Elvis Comeback Special live show. From the "in the round" sit-down part of the show, it's "That's All Right Mama." We're doing the show again on May 23rd at the Inlet Theatre in Port Moody.

Featuring Eli Williams as Elvis Presley, with The Memphis Sound band. That's Alex Kelly and me on guitar, with Eric Rasmusson hitting the guitar case as they did in the 1968 TV show, and Mark Hoeppner rocking the tambo.

More information about the show is on our 68 The Show page.

Blue Orchid Cover with student Merlin Matthewson

Here's a new video from one of my young guitar students, Merlin Matthewson. We recorded a cover of the White Stripes' song, "Blue Orchid."

I'm hoping that many more of my students here at the studio will make videos. It's a great opporuntity for them to try out all they learn in these guitar lessons, and have a record of their progress too. It's also a new challenge learning to perform with the tape rolling, so to speak, with a microphone in your face, and perform.
