Session 6 of my Guest Guitar Player Series was a long time coming, but it was well worth the wait ! This video features our good friend Kevin Crowley on guitar, who chose a totally bad-ass song that we were all super excited to work on! Just so happens that Kevin’s the busiest guy I’ve ever met. Like, for real… we definitely had a few scheduling issues getting this one going… BUT We were finally able to make it happen and I love it! I also love that a certain Rob Gaudet decided to join us on this one!
So here’s us rocking out on Alanis Morrisette’s “You Oughta Know”
Super special big ‘ol THANKS to Kevin Crowley for kicking ass, and Rob Gaudet for working his booty off shooting, editing, and performing in this Vid!
It’s that time again… Time for another Guest Guitar Player video!!
This one features Matt Skversky on guitar. I was really happy I was able to shoot this video with Matt… First of all… he picked a GREAT song!! (more about that in a second) Second of all, I was able to squeeze this in before Matt left L.A. for good, and I was really happy that we were able to make it happen!
Matt was only in LA for a short time, but he quickly got involved with our little circle of musicians and made his mark playing bass for The Cold Chills while he was here. We are *so* going to miss him!
The song he chose was Amy Winehouse’s “Back to Black” … I love this song. This was the song that made me realize what a great songwriter she was… like, next-level…she stopped me in my tracks with lines like …
“Life is like a pipe…and I’m a tiny penny rolling up the walls inside…”
Really, Amy!? you’re killing me… She had this way of getting you inside her head and somehow making you understand… She had a perfect balance of blunt realism and poeticism that I always loved… so sad that she’s gone.
So, this is our take on a great tune… Thanks for shooting this with me, Matt!!! And as always, special thanks to Rob Gaudet for shooting and editing this video!!!
I was really excited to have my friend Casey DC join me for session 3 of my GGPS… Me and Casey have been friends since 2004 when we were both on the National Tour of RENT! Seems like a lifetime ago, actually….but we both ended up here in LA and have always been friends… so I asked (forced) him to join me for this session.
Casey is in the band 9 Electric, and if you haven’t already heard of them I have a feeling you may soon… they’re kinda blowing up at the moment, So stay tuned… Check them out here: www.9electric.com
He chose the song “Uprising” by Muse…I love this song… and you know, we did our own little thing with it…
THANKS CASEY!! …and of course, very special thanks to Rob Gaudet for shooting & editing this video!
I’m starting something new for my YouTube channel called the Guest Guitar Player Series… in each session I’m going to have a new Guest Guitar Player performing a song OF THEIR CHOICE with me! Session 1 features my friend Alex Miranda on guitar. She chose Paramore’s “The Only Exception”
Special THANKS to Alex, and to Rob Gaudet for shooting and editing this video!
