I had every intention of not mentioning the slew of ridiculous videos that Ryan Adams is putting up on his YouTube page because, well, even if his hair looks exceptionally nice in all of them, they leave me a little perplexed about the wisdom of leaving computer video-editing software within reach of those with too much time on their hands. I mean, those wicked crystal ball effects are cool and all, but . . . what?
But then tonight this new video he posted a few hours ago made me laugh. Out loud, starting with the opening lines: “This here is a gee-tar. And the first thing you need to know is . . . you have to fret it, up here is the frets. Now when you’re frettin stuff . . .”
Ryan writes as description, “an instructional video based on the one Brad will NOT STOP PLAYING on the bus. i love brad. he could kick my dungeon all over the evergreen otherworld but he is my bro.
no content here reflects any ex girlfriends in any way.”
GUITAR and PIANO instruction
Anyone read lips? He looks pretty dang forlorn at the end (like a puppy), I think saying something about “baby.” I am going to ask my deaf friend Rima to translate.
