    Sungha Jung Gravity

    Sungha Jung Gravity Here’s an original composition by internet guitar phenomenon Sungha Jung. This particular video which was published almost two years ago to the day has almost 2 million views. Shngha Jung’s popularity is two fold. First, he’s a great player and he started out very young making videos. Perhaps an exception to the rule but certainly deserving of all the publicity. Now we do have some Sungha vids here at Acoustic Guitar Videos (check it out here) but […]

  • Maneli Jamal – Daft Funk

    Maneli Jamal – Daft Funk

    Here’s a new song by Maneli Jamal that just got released last week ( January 12) entitled “Daft Funk”.   Lately, Maneli has been getting into some serious groove acoustic… Daft Funk is for sure his funkiest song to date. You would expect with a title like this that he’d be using a lot of the modern percussive techniques for a song like this but, that’s not what happens here. Maneli does however use a percussive backbeat in this song, […]

Also this time the result is a great and accurate rendition of the original piece. Here is some information about the song: “Timothy Leary was a psychologist who became […]

    RafQu- Acoustic Guitar – Base Jump

    Here’s acoustic guitarist RafQu, with an  original composition entitled “Base Jump”, played on a custom Fabio Bonardi guitar. This very recent video which already has a lot of views (over 14,000), is RafQu’s first release on acoustic guitar giant Candyrat Records. This has to be a very exciting moment as being accepted as an artist for this label is no easy task. I recently asked RafQu about all of this: “So this was my Big Dream to released a song/Video […]

    We have already featured Eric Seehof in this post and also in this other one. A few months ago he received a new guitar, and he tested it in here with a new composition called “Stalker”. The guitar has a very nice tone, but it is always also about the player. By Miche Archetto

  • Richard Capener: Tapping Out A Sweet Melody

    Richard Capener: Tapping Out A Sweet Melody

    Here’s guitarist Richard Capener with a very easy peaceful feeling original song entitled “Tiny Winks,” which is from his CD – ‘Slinky Little Lizard’. I had this song going on right after arguing about an overcharge on my credit card- it was the perfect medicine  to calm me down. I really like the Db to D note bend as part of the melody in the song. Yea it’s simple, but it’s just perfect. Seems like the tapping is just to get […]

  • Maneli Jamal – Take The Cold Arrival

    Maneli Jamal – Take The Cold Arrival

    Maneli Jamal, who now lives in Canada, is perhaps in for a rude awakening with the cool Canadian weather. Not a great place to live if you don’t care for the deep down chill of a longer winter. But from what I have been told, Maneli is very happy with his family in Canada. And even if he didn’t tell me himself, check out this composition. Maneli does everything on the guitar here- from tapping, percussive, boogie, flatpicking with a […]

  • Brandon Farris: Great sounding CD to Be Released

    Brandon Farris: Great sounding CD to Be Released

    To Fly on the Sea ~ Brandon Farris (Original) Here’s a new composition by Alaskan guitarist Brandon Farris entitled “The Story Of Us” which will be released August 8th. Here were getting to listen to a little more of a production than I’m used to hearing with Brandon’s music… But you know what? It really works in my opinion- very tasteful and not overdone at all production wise. As far as his recording, it is extremely first rate. I probably […]

      By Miche Archetto: Sönke Meinen wrote me via facebook that he and Judith Beckedorf, both featured on “Acoustic Guitar Videos” in previous posts, are studying  at the “Hochschule für Musik Carl Maria von Weber” in Dresden. He pointed out some older guitar players graduated from that school and also some of the guitarists teaching at that school. David Sick is one of them. Unfortunately there are not many videos on youtube featuring this player, and those few don’t have a decent audio/video […]

    Paul Reynolds: Cold Blues

    Paul Reynolds from the UK writes the following about this video: “This is a Staccato Percussive Piece for my Small Tacoma Guitar. I’ve written quite a few tunes for this little instrument. This tune isn’t on any of my CDs. I’ll probably put it on the next one.” We’ve featured Paul Reynolds here before and once again, Paul is speaking to me on his little baby Tacoma traveling guitar. I have yet to hear anyone get a better tone out […]

  • Paul Reynolds: Plays African Song on a Takoma

    BIG SUN: by Paul Reynolds I know a lot of you travel… But isn’t it a pain to bring your guitar on a plane!!! When I was touring a lot, the effort it sometimes took for me to get my guitar in the cabin and not in baggage was monumental…. Id have to be early, request special assistance, make threats, get nasty etc… The Tacoma guitar was a solution for people wanting to travel light, and just get on the […]

  • Nathan Huisen- A Melodic Side To Tapping

    Nathan Huisen- Pearls in the sky Here’s percussive/tapping style guitarist by the name of Nathan Huisen that just finished his first album recently at Heil Studios, produced by Jesse Boleyn. Nathan really has it going here and for me, in a very musical/lyrical sense rather than just a lot of guitar acrobatics and fast picking. Some of the chord changes in this song “Pearls In The Sky” remind me of a Pat Metheny composition to a degree- Certainly not quite […]

  • (Swenn) The Heart Tuning – (Original)

    Here’s a young fingerstyle/percussive guitarist named Swenn (I believe his last name is Mohn) who is originally from Madagascar now living in France. Swenn sent this video into our sister site at facebook.com/acousticguitarvideos and you know what? I think he’s done a fine original here.It’s nothing really complex with his playing, but I like the fact that he’s  concentrating on the melody mostly. This looks like a good song to learn as I think it wouldn’t be too difficult.  I also am […]

    Wouldn’t It Be Good: (Nik Kershaw) by Roby Deaton Here’s a percussive fingerstyle guitar arrangement of Nik Kershaw’s 1984 hit “Wouldn’t It Be Good” by Piano and violin instructor Roby Deaton.. What? A piano and violin teacher playing guitar this good? Well, Roby is a fine musician, but he says in his bio that he started playing guitar just to get girls and make a lot of money!  I don’t know, I am a full time guitarist myself but I never […]

  • Solo Acoustic Guitar with Stefano Barone – Altalenanze

    Hey! Check out this amazing sounding recording by Italian guitarist Stefano Barone, performing a piece entitled Altalenanze. It’s difficult to tell if the video and audio was shot at the same time since it sounds to me like there’s microphones involved in the recording. And unless it was shot with one camera (a two camera shoot), that would definitely mean that it was played along to. But either way, this  is a superb performance. Now to my ears, it sounds like a […]
