I actually did this to my guitar like a year ago, except mine had an actual tuning, I didn't just make the 3 strings "sound good together". Mostly I just hate the fact that he is right I guess, and that this is actually kinda a cool way of playing guitar, he just does it really really annoyingly.

Also he is playing the single stupidest looking guitar I have ever seen.
There is no good Art in here.

The most bizarre thing about that video is that he has no tattoos but does wear a watch.


Relatively young people, always full of surprises.
I really don't appreciate your sarcastic, anti-comedy tone, Bro!

Lou Reed was known to tune all six strings to the same note, which sounds daft to me, but netted him some "hit" songs, relatively speaking.

I can't think of any Lou Reed songs that did that. Are you thinking of Metal Machine Music? Not any hits on there.

A lot of the Sonic Youth sound comes from tuning some of the strings in unison.

The Presidents played with three or four strings on the guitar and two on the bass.

this was pretty funny, but GREAT because it's all in the spirit of DOING IT.

I've taught a few beginners on guitar & bass before, and the first lesson is pretty much like this. Theory and all that is great, but the most important thing is to have fun. sorry, but memorizing the modes up and down the neck is like homework.

Lou Reed wrote songs for Andy Warhol's factory at one time. He didn't sing/record the songs.

Also Lou Reed legend has it he wrote a song called 'The ostrich' that's one of those 'here's a song about a new dance I made up' songs. I am too lazy/inebriated to either Wiki or Snopes this.

aw no man, I am not like a "real" musician or anything. probably still a 4 on a scale of 10 after 20 years of halfassing it.

I was watching tv late last night and saw a community college small jazz combo (or possibly HS) on the public access. they were good players and all, but as I saw that their professor was part of the group too, it occurred to me just how tragic and sad "teenage jazz" is. give 'em some damn rock and roll before you turn them off from music FOREVER by jamming Chick Corea down their throats.

Excuse the bad sound quality, but this is typical of one of my college era jams:

The video footage is from elsewhere, all that remains of it is a Maxell tape.
