“All Star” Guitar Tutorial

Sup everyone πŸ™‚

This time around I decided to make a guitar tutorial for the song “All Star” by one of my favorite bands, Smash Mouth πŸ˜‰

I get really detailed and play the same exact rig I’m playing on stage every show (minus the amps).
If you have any questions make sure to comment and ask away, I’ll help y’all out πŸ™‚

Have a great day and stay safe (COVID times)

This Song Made It Into “Dancing With The Stars”

Hope you enjoy it.
Let me know if you’d like more or less of these…they’re fun to make πŸ™‚

Bailando Tutorial

Well folks, we finally did it πŸ™‚

You guys (and gals) are always asking me to play this and play that…so here we go.

How To Stay Motivated During Lock-Down

If you follow me on social media, you know I’m CONSTANTLY creating music, coming up with ideas for YouTube and a million other things.

Many times, I get asked “How do you stay so motivated?”
So, I just made a video about it to explain my process.
It was a fun video to make and I hope you get some motivation from it πŸ™‚

Side note…we just passed the 500 Subs mark (woohoo!!!) and became official Amazon Affiliates.
So, if you’re ever wondering how to support me in a way where you don’t have to donate money directly, this is it πŸ™‚

When you click on any of the links in the description (of the video on youtube), even if you don’t buy THAT piece, but you continue on and buy something else,
something you were going to buy anyway…I get commission from Amazon.
Super simple!
So, go support your local musician (that’s me) by clicking on his links πŸ˜‰

Well..that’s it for now.
Really hoping we start performing again soon. I need some live music in my life πŸ™‚

Have a great day y’all.

Band Agreements 101

Annnnnd…we’re back!
Last week I took a break out of respect for the #BlackLivesMatter message and the protests.
I asked my followers and viewers to take a moment and instead of watching a new video by me, educate themselves, as I was trying to do,
in the matters brought up by the death of George Floyd (RIP).

But now, we’re back in business! Helping the next generation of musicians make the right choices so they can be…my competition haha.

In this is video I finally talk, in depth, about Band Agreements.
I even share this example with you from my past.
It’s a free PDF of my band agreement from back in the day with an awesome artists called “Shane” (not me).
Me and a few other amazing writers co-wrote 17 songs for Shane’s album, got management, signed the deal…
and then ended up nowhere…unfortunately.

But as I mentioned in the video, that…the eventual breaking up of that band/project was also discussed in the agreement, as you can see if you go through it.
But, I’m warning you…it’s LONG!
The contract, not the video πŸ™‚
Yours doesn’t have to be that long.

Oh…also…amazing bloopers!!!! haha

Anyway, I hope you learn some good stuff from this one.
If you wanna support and want some good knowledge as soon as it comes out Like the vid and Subscribe to the channel.
Please comment on the video and let me know how I can help you become a better artist and musician.

We’ve got a private Smash Mouth event next month (7/2020).
I can’t wait to see everyone and play live again!!!!!

Catchya on the road soon.
