Carelessly Classical

Naudo, he's probably the 1st fingerstyle guitarist I've idolized. You would've expected him to play reggae music by his looks plus the dreadlocks, but once you listen to his covers (from Spanish songs to Rock to Love songs and even to theme songs like Pink Panther and Mission Impossible!) you'll be amazed at how much assorted his music can be.

Naudo once had a channel on Youtube containing a playlist full of his amazing covers resulting in thousands of subscribers. After a while though, his account was suddenly banned for what seems to be 'copyright' reasons. Thousands of subscribers have then sought out the Youtube sensation as far as one fan even posting a video with a song 'Where is Naudo?'. Details on why he has moved from Youtube can be found on his blog.

Faulkner's new album

Previously, I mentioned an upcoming Newton Faulkner album somewhere this year. On Faulkner's MySpace blog, it was announced that the new album will be coming on the 21st of September entitled: 'Rebuilt by Humans'. The album contains songs that Newton only sang, so far, during his live performances such as: 'I Took It On You' and 'Won't Let You Go'.

Sungha's covers King of Pop

Thousands of tributes have been done for the deceased King of Pop, Michael Jackson(may he rest in peace). There were dance tributes, videos, song, and covers all over the web. One such recognition to the King caught my attention, it was performed live at the Acoustic Guitar Meeting on April 4 2009 in Giessen/Rödgen, Germany. Played by one of the brightest fingertyle guitarists I've seen: Sungha Jung, a talented Korean boy, guitarist and Youtube star.

This is one of my favorite performances, simply because not only am I a fan of fingerstyle and classical playing but Sungha is just so amazing.

RIP Michael Jackson, and Cheers for Sungha!

Piano Face

If you don't know what song I'm referring to, I'm not sure what planet you're from. The one I'm talking about is the acoustic piano performance of Poker Face done by Lady Gaga herself. It has been a while since this song was released, and she's STILL at the top of the charts.

This specific video is included as one of the tracks on her first live EP, The Cherrytree Sessions. You've got to admit, this gal may seem different at first, but she's got style as a musician.

IU covers Gee, Lies, Sorry Sorry

IU, a very talented Korean female singer. If you did you're Korean celebrity research, you should know that IU has one amazing voice(not to mention she plays the guitar) that matches with her very well. This 16 year old only recently played covers for a number of big hit Korean songs.

On a newly aired episode of Yu Hui Yeol's Sketchbook, she did those covers live to a huge crowd, doing acoustic covers of Gee by SNSD, Lies by Big Bang and Sorry Sorry by Super Junior. She wowed the audience with her beautiful voice while playing the guitar.

Newton's Law of Acoustics

Let's go slower as I introduce you to Sam Newton Battenberg Faulkner or Newton Faulkner for short, and if you think you've seen a one man band, this guitarist from Surrey can outstrip most by just playing his guitar, singing and hitting his guitar as percussion. His style includes a rythmic and catchy beat while singing songs from folk to alternative. His compositions possess that adult contemporary sound as with songs you hear from those such as Michael Bublé, John Mayer, Tim McGraw, etc. Hope you enjoy these videos.

I Need Something by Newton Faulkner

Will feature more of this amazing musician after he releases his new album somewhere in August! Stay tuned!
