Jerry C really rocks
told me about this lad: I think he's from Taiwan. She said,
'Listen to him play guitar. You'll love it! He's called Jerry C.'
I was skeptical because it's usually the kiss of death if
someone says, 'You'll love this!' But I did. The boy rocks!
He can play everything from Classical to straight no-nonsense
rock and roll.
Find his website here, download a couple of his videos and enjoy! What I also like is - he lists the guitars he
uses on his site, so if you want to blow all your cash

OK Fingal I downloaded, through my slow dial up connection, and then played
" I'm Alright ".
You and your friend are quite correct; Jerry " C " can play a guitar very well.
Can you save me some time, please, and list his other workings that appealed to you? Thanks!!

He has a good technique which seems to unfold as he plays ... If you watch his hands there's a lot of left hand work, but the right hand is very relaxed and he's very focused on what he's doing.I am always doing that which I can not do, in order that I may learn how to do it. - Pablo Picasso

Thank You, Fingal!!
Good musicians, I have noticed, do not just play notes on their instruments: they " meld " with their instruments and " talk " through them. The truly " Great " musicians let their very souls be exposed through their music.

Through folk I discovered blues, and through blues I got interested in rock (or was it the other way round??) If I go into my favourite rock pub in the city centre, I can leave my bag by the bar - be away for half an hour, and when I come back my bag will still be there. If anyone causes trouble, strong hands will seize that person and he's out on the street: the customers do that for you. The irony is, if you wander in there it looks scary: people in black leather with multiple body piercings and tattoos! All they ask of you is that you enjoy the scene, don't judge anyone and have fun.
Music is spiritual stuff, the best language there is and 'social glue'. You can use it to make new friends ... It can give you a sense of identity and it's something to do. You're rarely alone with an instument. In fact, I've just bought a practice amp for £45 and plan to learn electric guitar. I'll never be great, but someone described it as 'The most fun you can have with your clothes still on'. I plan to find out if that's true.I am always doing that which I can not do, in order that I may learn how to do it. - Pablo Picasso

Fingal, I also have a family full of artists and musicians ( some of them world famous ). Only my close relatives know that when I was young I played violin and painted murals. Unfortunately, the grim realities of the world at war, made me put my talents on a back burner.
Good music always still produces goose bumps on my arms. I told you we have a lot in common. Thanks!!
