A Man Who Has Nothing In Particular To Recommend Him Discusses All Sorts of Subjects at Random as Though He Knew Everything


He worked all summer and saved his money and bought himself a guitar and amplifier. His dad and uncle gave him a couple lessons, but he mostly taught himself to play by watching YouTube videos.

The only advice I gave him was to learn songs all the way through, and not spend all his time noodling away at heroic guitar solos no one wants to hear. It’s why he can annoy the neighbors along with the old men right away.

(If you read the Instapundit every day, you’d have been informed that you could buy a Flip video camera for $49, and thereby have a video like this instead of bupkis)

  1. That was awesome.

    Excuse the anti-parental-comfort comment, but he'll have girls walking over one another to reach him in a few years. 🙂

  2. @Anwyn: Maybe the smart ones. Especially if "a dozen years" counts as "a few years". Or maybe not. It only takes one, after all.

    But besides all that, I wanted to bring this video to your attention. Me, I spent several unplanned hours over Labor Day weekend on a ladder replacing part of a dryrotted window frame with some crap I found in the basement…

    As for the music – yeah! Badfinger Forever.

  3. Anwyn- It took almost half an hour after we stopped playing for that to happen.

    Hazy- Great video. Dude's hardcore.

    As for Badfinger, he can play Baby Blue and Day After Day, too.
