Guitar Tutorial: "Maybe" by Neocolours Fingerstyle Guitar Solo Cover



Somebody requested me to do a tutorial of the song "Maybe" by Neocolours.  Here is the video of that tutorial that I made.  You may watch near the end of the video where I played the song continuously as a reference for this tutorial.  The guitar that I used for this video recording was Cort Cedar Grand acoustic-electric guitar.  I used the guitar's Fishman pickup during recording.

I have also written a guitar tablature for this song so that it will be easier to learn how to play it in guitar.  You may download the guitar TAB by clicking the button below.  The guitar sheet includes the TAB, song lyrics and guitar chords.

Shubb C1 Guitar Capo Demo and First Look Unboxing



Here is my first look and demo of Shubb guitar capo model C1 standard for steel string guitars.

This capo is very easy to install and small design thus, it is not obstructing the hand when moving on the fret board.  This has a roller on pressure plate which enables smooth capo installation on guitar neck.  It has a good material and it looks very sturdy. 

I tried this capo on my three guitars. 1. Cort acoustic guitar with narrow neck, 2. Seagull acoustic guitar with wider neck, and 3. Cordoba classic guitar.  It worked on guitar 1 and 2 but this capo did not suit classical guitar since it is shorter and slightly curved, thus, it is designed only for steel stringed guitars, whether electric or acoustic.

I have written the guitar tablature for this song for easy guitar learning.  If you are interested with the TABs, you may download it for free by clicking the "Download" button below.  The TABs include guitar chords as well.

Cort Acoustic Electric Guitar Connects to PC using USB Guitar Link Cable



This video shows how I connected my Cort acoustic-electric guitar to PC using a USB guitar link cable.  One end of the cable is connected to the guitar which has 6.5mm mono audio cable and the other end has USB terminal with electronics and LED indicator.  This cable doesn't need special software driver. It uses the standard audio driver from Microsoft.   Installation of driver is all automatic as soon as the cable is plugged-in.  I played my guitar and compared the sound using guitar acoustic only as well as with the use of the guitar electric pickup.  There are other options to connect the electric guitar to PC but this one is considered to be low cost with decent recording quality.  I used a free software called Audacity to record the guitar.  You may watch the video to hear the difference.

"My Way" by Frank Sinatra Fingerstyle Guitar Solo Cover

"And now, the end is near,
And so I face the final curtain ...."

If you would like to get a copy of the guitar tablature for this, I have prepared one and free to download.  Please click the button below to download the Tab.

Cort Cedar Grand F OP Acoustic-Electric Guitar Demo Review



In this video, I showed the Cort Cedar Grand F OP acoustic electric guitar.  This guitar has a solid cedar top. This guitar has an amazing tone as acoustic and works well using an electric function,  with Fishman Classic under saddle pickup.  I was not able to test the pickup in this video because I still haven't got the guitar cable when I recorded this one.  The guitar is comfortable to play with good action and the neck thickness fits perfectly with my hand.  I have replaced the strings with Galli Strings Lucky Star Phosphor Bronze set.  Please watch the video to hear the tone of this guitar.
