I am currently working on a tune that I think everybody knows well – Sweet Georgia Brown. I have tried to play this every now and then, but now I am playing this together with a friend on two mandolins – so it’s time to learn it really good.
Before I begin with the mandolin versions I must first show this video that I have found on http://www.squidoo.com/sweet-georgia-brown and that is really great:
Sweet Georgia Brown med traktorkomp
Three guitars accompanied by a tractor
This tractor is really better than every metronome and drumset!
Now a great video with guitar and mandolin:
Guitar and Mandolin playing Sweet Georgia Brown
For lessons visit http://www.freeflatpickingvideos.com Curtis Jones (guitar) and Jeff Midkiff (mandolin) playing an acoustic version of Sweet Georgia Brown.
Another version that I like:

Now I have found enough examples – all I need more is practice, practice, practice!

Julian Lage is a young but already very successful jazz guitar player from the USA. Last year he has recorded his first Solo-CD Sounding Point with some special guests including Christ Thile and Bela Fleck.
The following video was made on the occasion of the CD release. Julian Lage tells about his childhood, how he got his first guitar, how he started to play jazz and also about musicians that influenced him or helped him with this first CD.

Julian was just 12 years old when he was one of the young musical prodigy kids that played at the 2000 Grammy Awards:

Julian plays a guitar built by Linda Manzer – Linda builds beautiful guitars – but unfortunately they are too expensive for me.
I am curious how Julian will go on with his carrerer and which collaborations he well do in the future.
I have collected some other videos with Julian Lage in the following playlist:
