    Jerry C really rocks


    This is just a fun thread really. Someone I chat to online
    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
    feel free.

    PS: Disclaimer here. I'm not affiliated to Jerry or his friends.
    I'm far too lazy to travel to Taiwan.

    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!!

    Yes cousinlucky - Canon Rock is well worth downloading. It's a Classical piece. If you like rock music you might enjoy 'Rock On'. Canon Rock was the piece my online friend recommended though.

    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.

    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.

    Yes! Completely so ... My dad used to be a jazz musician, so I grew up listening to his own particular brand of New Orleans music. His heroes were Louis Armstrong, Bix Beiderbeck, Jelly Roll Morton, but he introduced me to folk music when I was about 20. He bought me an old Joaz Baez record, and she got me interested. We have much to thank America for there (I might have said that before but I don't mind repeating it!)

    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.

    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!!
