Video Shoot

Hello everybody!

A week ago we did a video shoot for Irida's song "Karten auf den Tisch". I played the guitars on one song of her new CD, and we hope that the CD will be out by the end of the year. Anyway, the video shoot was fun. Of course there was very little time for everything, as usually when the budget is limited. But I think that we got a lot of good material. The idea was to film women from many different cultural backgrounds. The few guys in the video are either bad guys or they play guitar :)
I'll let you know as soon as we have something to watch!

The shooting was done in "De Studio" in Nederweert. Many thanks to Bart from Let's Play Music Center Eindhoven for the equipment I used (white Fender Strat, 4x12 Marshall cabinet, Engl head).

Here are some pictures to give you an idea:

New stuff on TABs & Sheet Music Page

I've put up some new things on my TABs & Sheet Music page. In response to a lot of requests from my younger students, I wrote an arrangement for two guitars for the Super Mario Theme Song :) There are two version available, one for 2 classical guitars, which is played in the first position with open strings, and one for 2 electric guitars, which is played in the higher positions without open strings.
For my advanced students I've uploaded a guitar transcription of Jaco Pastorius's bass solo on Teen Town. Jaco's melodic lines are very interesting, and they are also a great technical workout on the guitar. Check it out and have fun!
