Katy Perry / Matt Cardle - Firework - Tyler Ward and Alex Goot (Acoustic Cover)

This video is a duet by two of my favorite male youtube artists: Alex Goot and Tyler Ward. It's a simple piano and guitar duet (with a little female vocals on the chorus) that makes for a A+ quality cover of the popular Katy Perry and Matt Cardle song. Enjoy!

The Crowing- acoustic

This video is of Claudio from Coheed and Cambria. It's really cool to see the raw version of this song, The Crowing. Personally, i prefer the full band arrangement, but the acoustic version allows you to really understand the song's meaning. Enjoy!

Love Story Taylor Swift meets Viva La Vida Coldplay

If you like Taylor Swift or Coldplay, or any good music in general, you will like this song and video. The combination of piano and cello is completely natural and fluid. The musicality of the two artists is obvious and pleasing to the ear. This song speaks to you. Enjoy!

Drops of Jupiter Acoustic

A friend of mine posted this to my FB page last week. I have always loved this song; I've actually performed it a couple of times with different groups. This is an acoustic version of the song Drops of Jupiter by Train, featuring the lead signer and lead guitar player. This song gains much from the raw sound of acoustic guitar and unmodified vocals. Enjoy!

One Less Tear to Cry

The Barnkickers are a Father Daughter duo that just released a CD called "Square Pegs & Round Holes." I originally found them surfing youtube for ukulele music. Their big hit "One Less Tear to Cry" is by far my favorite song on their album. Steve and Amanda Boisen are a dynamic duo whom you should definitely pay attention to. Enjoy!

Turtle Bay Bass Solo

I found this while looking through music from the Barnkickers. This song is just a bass solo on a fender precision bass. Great tone, great melody, awesome performance. Enjoy!
