Lesson A Week 9: Code Monkey

It's week 9 at lesson a week! I've survived this far and I hope to continue on as long as my schedule. This week's song is the live version of Code Monkey. Since it's based on a few different performances, some chords or rhythms may vary between versions. Enjoy!

The poll is back so vote for next week's lesson now on the JoCo forums!

Lesson a Week 8: Mandelbrot Set + Paul and Storm Goodie

This week we get mathematical on Lesson a Week! As I'm getting closer to graduating, I'm glad to present a song that has an educational ring to it, but avoids being called "edutainmant" *shudder*. In addition, I decided to do a lesson for one of my favorite Paul and Storm songs "A Better Version of You". If there's enough response I can do more P&S, but at this point, I've got a lot on my plate with the JoCo lessons and the tab editing project. Enjoy!

If Dave Taught Guitar: A Better Version of You

I also want to mention that next week's video for Code Monkey (live version) may be the last video I do for a few weeks because I'll be even busier with graduation and stuff. I'll post a poll when I know my schedule a bit better. I definitely want to continue doing these lessons though, so don't worry about that. :)

Lesson a Week 7: Still Alive (Live Version)

I've got a new lesson for you today for Still Alive, the live version. The one that most people know is direct from Portal, that's not this one. This is just the way JoCo plays the song live. Also, I've been so crunched for time with the whole, graduating from college thing, so I didn't have time to edit out an error I made during the final play-through where I play the Bm chord too early. The verses all have the same number of measures. Sorry for the confusion. As always, drop me a line if you need any clarification.

Lesson a Week 6: First of May + Mini Lesson 2

The first of may is only a few weeks away, so now you'll all be able to have time to practice this one and sing it for all your friends when the time comes. In addition to this lesson I did a mini lesson last week for the bridge of Dance, Soterios Johnson, Dance. I made it because I heard that JoCo was having trouble remembering the chords, so in good fun I made this short video. I will have another mini lesson that deals specifically with finger picking sometime in the next week or so. Enjoy!

Lesson a Week 5: Big Bad World One

Despite all of the school stuff and gigs I've had lately, I managed to whip this one up in one take, no editing. I hope you all can get something out it.
