Justin-I have an important question, but first, I just want to say- I've never done this before- write to someone who made a video.
I know you're probably too busy to write back, but if I COULD ask you anything, it would be for a Good Fingerstyle tab book, with James Taylor, other fingerstyle greats, blues, etc. Is there such a thing?
When I was younger, I used to think James Taylor songs were too "pretty" to be "cool", how wrong I was.
When I started playing guitar, many moons ago, I loved "Fire and rain", but I thought, "Nah, that sounds too complicated to learn"
Since then, I've learned hundreds of songs I can strum chords and sing to, so my New Challenge is fingerstyle and sing.
I just watched your "Fire and rain"- Dude- YOU-ARE-AWESOME. You can even sing like James!
I wish I could take Lessons from you, but I will learn as much as possible, from your site. Thank You, from all of us who appreciate what you do.
I have ONE question (so far). Are those fingernails glue-ons?
I've been trying to figure the best way to go. The plastic fingerpicks, I can't really get the "touch". the control of my fingers, with them.
And flesh doesn't have the treble, the tone, of picks, or nails. I don't think ANY fingerpicks can EVER give the touch YOU have, with your nails.
Give us the Nail Secrets!
Oh! yeah, justone more- I was reading your vibrato post, and replies, some guys mention your "videos",the Vibrato video", and 5 blues riffs", etc. Where do I find those videos, on You Tube?
Thanks, again, Justin. You are a TRUE musician of caliber. "Full marks", I think the Brits say?
I can't tell you how much I appreciate the "Fire and rain" video.
I gotta go, so I can practice! ........ Bravo, Bravo, Bravo.
Take a Bow, my man- If you ever make a record, I'll DEFINITELY buy it!
