This is really interesting because Stevie T takes a badly sung song actually creates a piece of music. He goes through the process of editing and includes vocals, guitar, bass, and drums. Super talented guy.
Adjusted the link, FYI you can just paste in the YouTube URL directly and it will embed nicely here automatically
Anything particular about the video / song / process you wanted to talk about here?
Love that guy. He is more an entertainer than an educator, though.
His old technique-videos consist of the classic “just play it slow and then play it a lil faster, you will rip at 220 Bpm in no time”-advice.
What i like most about his playing is the effortlessnes with which he incorporates virtuosity. He often flows through difficult runs without making them the centerpiece of the motiv, its great. I wont forgive him for the Benson-video, though. Thats bullying, imo, or trash-tv at best.
You mean (insert beat) . R i c a r d B e n s o n.
I knew I shouldn’t have but I couldn’t stop laughing . omg.
He is funny (and arguably too kinetic for me to watch in long bursts), but he certainly is educational, and I think that he repeatedly drives home one critical message through example: (a) decide what it has to sound like, then (b) figure out how to make that sound/music on a guitar. Most guitar players have this backwards, they move their fingers around and listen to hear what comes out, hence they’re never musical.
