So I came up with this neat idea to help improve my guitar lessons. A lot of times I teach beginning students and only need one or two chord stamps, or one row of tablature. I got tired of drawing them out so I came up with a printed out version that peels and sticks to the students note book. It’s white and matte finish so I can write on it nicely.
I thought about calling this tab-tape, but I think calling them stick-ems is more appropriate. I can make bass tab, ukulele chord stamps and there is a potential that I can get these in different colors.
Here’s a video on my little invention and you can see that it is useful.
I may market these, so let me know your feedback, if you may have any.
Tonight I saw a wonderful guitarist from France, Pierre Bensusan. This took place at World Music Nashville, which is really in Bellevue. He was excellent! I knew him as a fingerstyle guitarist, but didn’t know could sing so well. It was kind of like hearing Bobby McFerrin, with a guitar, in sort of a French kind of way. I was really surprised in a good way.
Saw a couple of friends that only Nashville can provide
Hey Guys! Just got in from doing stuff, now I have a handful of students! I love teaching! Today I have a ukulele student that is really really good and the her brother is doing great as well. He’s a lefty and is playing some really cool stuff, by the Newsboys, and then we’ve been working on Eye of the Tiger.
Then another student and another student and another student and another student.
Despite the nasty weather there was a beautiful wedding. I had the honor of playing for a new friend from church, Tommy. They specifically asked for Canon in D so I did it as the bride walked on down. I also did the music for people as they came, and played all of my original love songs. It was a really small and quaint wedding at the United Methodist church in Eagleville, TN.
If you would like to hire me for you wedding or hire my band for reception music, feel free to get in touch with me.
Me and the band played a gig at the Country Music Hall Of Fame in Nashville, TN. The band is comprised of Brian Shind (Bass) and Kyle Jones on percussion. We had a great time playing for the UPSTREAM2012 event social hour. The music was perfect for such and event as wine drinking and eating food and being social.
Here are some sampling of our music being played there.
