Using a Capo

Posted on

Hey again, 2 videos from me this weekend. Sorry about that! 🙂 Anyway, I thought I’d post a video on some of the ways I use a capo. I’ve used one for almost as long as I’ve been playing guitar, and I find that it makes some things easier, some things more interesting, and some things just more fun. So have a look and enjoy!

What else can you strum? Banjo Edition – Mr. J

Posted on

I’ve been working on the banjo for almost a year now, and have yet to truly move beyond playing it like a guitar. But I think I’m beginning to at least (in my own way) make it start to sound like a banjo.

Here’s a recording I made as well picking out the chords to the Deep Dark Woods’ “All the Money I had is Gone”:

Two Minute Tutorial: Dion’s “Runaround Sue”

Posted on Updated on



An acoustic cover and a new assignment sub-category in one. Allow me to introduce the Two Minute Tutorial, featuring Dion's "Runaround Sue." 

Here is a tab to play along with (ironically enough tabbed by a gent for Ultimate-Guitar named Josh Ritter: 

D
Here's my story, it's sad but true
Bm
It's about a girl that I once knew
G
She took my love, then ran around
A
With every single guy in town

D
Hey, hey, um-da-da-da-di-di       
Bm                            
Hey, hey, um-da-da-da-di-di  
G                            
Hey, hey, um-da-da-da-di-di   
A                             
Hey, hey, oooooooooohhhhh

D
I guess I should have known it from the very start
Bm
This girl would leave me with a broken heart
G
Now listen people what I'm telling you
A
"I keep away from Runaround Sue"

D
Her amazing lips and the smile from her face
Bm
The touch of her hand and this girl's warm embrace
G
So if you don't want to cry like I do
A
Keep away from Runaround Sue.

G
She like to travel around
D
She'll love you, then she'll put you down
G
Now, people let me put you wise
A
She goes out with other guys

D
And the moral of the story from the guy who knows
Bm
I've been in love and my love still grows
G
Ask any fool that she ever knew
A
they'll say: Keep away from Runaround Sue
