  • Miles Devlin: Sailing The “Ocean”

    The description over at YouTube says the following: “The most amazing cover of Ocean on YouTube. Written by John Butler, performed by Miles Devlin and Produced by Clinton Cave.” I’m not so familiar with this John Butler song but the comments suggest this is the best cover of it. Samily said: “Absolutely the best cover of this song! Keep posting Miles you’re amazing!!!” Okalov also wrote the following: “Looks like he’s playing over good quality sections he’s pre-recorded. I doubt he’s “miming” […]

  • Roman Viazovskiy Plays Thelonious Monk

    Thelonious Monk “Round Midnight” Arr. R.Dyens – played by Roman Viazovskiy   Here’s guitarist Roman Viazovskiy who is performing here  for Ukranian TV…  his program “Wanderer in time” (“Zeitenwanderer”) Roman is as fluid of a player as you will ever hear, and I really like this interpretation of “Round Midnight” as it’s coming from a classical approach rather than just jazz. Yea there’ s a lot of jazz in this composition by nature (hello, it’s Thelonious Monk, check out the […]

    Bako Jovanović- Romani Gypsy Guitar Virtuoso Aleksandr Vyatkin shared this video with us over at our facebook site featuring Bako Jovanović in what I titled this post as “Just Riffin’ at home.

And you know, just because I couldn’t find anything doesn’t mean that Bako isn’t doing a lot of […]

    “Howard Morgen playing his arrangement of Round Midnight, from his book “Through Chord-Melody and Beyond” (Alfred Music).” I’m finally including an archtop guitar video that I don’t believe is plugged in (please correct me if I’m wrong). Guitarist and columnist Howard Morgan has quite a vocabulary, both with words and on the guitar.

  • John Denver: Solo Guitar

    John Denver Bells of Rhymney I’ve been getting some flack lately from the folk enthusiasts here at Acoustic Guitar Videos for not providing enough bluegrass music… (hey sorry, that was a joke). not enough Folk Music. I’m just going to preface this next statement with something that someone at a bluegrass festival years ago said, and I think it’s mostly true… “You can put the bluegrass into folk, but you can’t put the folk into bluegrass.” I know, what does […]

    Improving Your Acoustic Guitar Playing- Practice… But Why?

    By Bob Harris: Some say that improving your acoustic guitar playing is just a matter of practice… but is it really just that… and why? Well, I found this article over at the Talent Code by NY Times best selling author Daniel Coyle with an interesting story about a clarinetist named Torin Bakke who made recordings after practicing 200, 1000, and 3000 hours, noticing a difference in his playing.

  • Kent Burnside — High Street Strut

    Here’s an original composition by Nashville guitarist Kent Burnside entitled High Street Strut.  It was recorded at First Avenue Sound, Franklin TN, December 2011 (hey, I think I was at that studio!). He’s getting a real nice tone out of that guitar of his, and his note choice is direct and to the point, never straying too far from the melody. Kent has some more videos at YouTube which he also plays an archtop.  Kent obviously knows his music, as he’s […]
