Just in case this is your first time viewing one of our roundups. We split this post into different sections. First up are any videos from around the world of rock guitar which have published on Youtube. Anything that takes our eye is here!
Interesting split screen video which has got a pretty good cover version. Need to see the players face at some point though.
Into funk guitar? It’s not rock, however, we don’t have a funk guitar roundup so we wanted to add this here. It’s well worth a view.
This guy obviously takes his AC/DC very seriously although his computer messenger bleeping doesn’t really help keep the image going…

New in Stores, August 2018, Part Four By Joseph Neff | Published: August 23, 2018 Part four of the TVD Record Store Club’s look at the new and reissued releases presently in stores for August, 2018. Part one is here , part two is here , and part three is here . NEW RELEASE PICKS: Ohmme, Parts (Joyful Noise) Chicagoans Sima Cunningham and Macie Stewart are both trained classical pianists, but for their first album as Ohmme they choose to focus upon rich vocal harmony and guitar crunch.
