If nothing else, Intellimusica is where you’ll find Radiohead and Katy Perry songs harmoniously living on the same blog.  Even though I have a rigid system, I’m still experimenting; putting anything and everything through the filter of my nylon-string guitars. Roar was very low hanging […]

The Last Of Us ‘Reprise’ — The (Complete) Theme For Guitar

I posted a version of Gustavo Santaolalla’s The Last Of Us theme in January of 2012. At that time, the only thing I had to go on, was an unmixed, un-mastered, and ultimately incomplete “leaked” version of what we now know as The Last Of […]

Radiohead: Fake Plastic Trees | fingerstyle guitar

It would seem to me, that success is the product of hundreds — if not thousands — of good decisions in any given time period. Whether it’s your diet, a football game, your studies, or just playing guitar — an overabundance of good to bad […]

The Spectacular Now: Walk in the Trees | fingerstyle guitar

The Last Of Us: How to Play — The Quarantine Zone (20 Years Later) — Gustavo Santaolalla

Daft Punk: Get Lucky | fingerstyle guitar

A very pleasant comment from YouTube, in reference to my Django Unchained arrangement: Anywhere to find the tabs without having to sign up to some f__king cash grabbing blog? While not as pithy, this is one of my favorite YouTube endorsements, in reference to my […]

Massive Attack: Teardrop | fingerstyle guitar

One of the many upsides to having a (regularly updated) blog, is that it will establish credibility and authority with your offline job — so long as they’re similar. Although my teaching schedule is booked to capacity, I have pointed to my blog as a […]

Archive: You Make Me Feel | fingerstyle guitar

“If you’re remarkable, then it’s likely that some people won’t like you. That’s part of the definition of remarkable. Nobody gets unanimous praise — ever.”  -Seth Godin This post will only appeal a very small minority of people — and that’s probably a good thing.  […]
