I started watching his channel after I saw his "what makes this song great" video on 'Closer to the Heart.' I love that series and have enjoyed every video, even if I didn't really know (or like) the song.
The rest of his content is hit or miss for me. Some of the theory is over my head but I have enjoyed his Top Intros and other series a lot. Definitely highly recommended.

I just found this channel last week, linked from another message board to his "What Makes This Song So Great" for xtc's "Mayor of Simpleton".  I agree, this is crack, have been binging all afternoon.  I like the music theory videos, gonna send those to my son, been trying to teach him some classic country songs, and he doesn't get it when I just tell him I, IV, V, II, etc....

I came across one of his videos last year and next thing I knew I watched like 10 in a row. What I like about it is that he makes the music side of it approachable for non-musicians like me who just like music. I’ll also give him some credit for inspiring me to go learn an instrument this year.

Watch all the way through from the start. EJ doing the "Stairway" solo is at the end. Enjoy the buildup...then get ready to be blown the fuck away.

I thought about posting this yesterday, but wasn’t sure if anyone else watched that channel.  You’re right, it’s an interesting idea, but the whole thing really was just waiting to see how EJ would interpret that space. He is still amazing. He makes it look and sound almost effortless.

He actually messed up in a couple of places, but his interpretation was amazing.

Now that I've heard someone mimic EVH (it wasn't bad at all) I really want to hear the real live EVH do this.

I have to avoid watching one video because I'll end up watching 10. Love these even though I don't understand alot if the technical music stood. He does a great job of explaining.

He has a lot of beginner-level videos, too. Love his series on modes.

I wish my “messing up in a couple of places” sounded like Eric Johnson’s messing up in a couple places.

Thanks for posting this. I actually thought Rick's Frampton-inspired solo was the best, laughed a bunch during the EVH imitation/parody, and got nostalgic during EJ's rendition.

What a superb idea for a video. Great content!

He's an Austin original.  Worth checking out if you liked what you heard.

that was really cool.  i don't know who eric johnson is but i really enjoyed his melodic interplay.

  Yeah, start with the classics, pretty much anything from Ah Via Musicom**. Bet you've heard at least a few and didn't know it.

 

(** I'm advocating for EJ as a musician, not so much a vocalist.)

Well... so much for THAT wish.

For those in the know, how does he get copies of the separate tracks?  Or is he using some kind of software or hardware wizardry?  

Because in a lot of these videos, he is able to isolate it to individual instruments and voices, and I'm curious how he does that.

i suspect for some of them, he's just getting the stems from producer buddies or industry contacts.  he doesn't have them for all the songs he does.

May not be the case for all of them but there was definitely some software in use for these.

Quite a lot of speculation as to how he gets them in the thread above.

That's what I wondered, because some are amazingly pristine, and while I doubt they are the originals, they sound pretty close (and I wonder if he's covered any Universal artist after the 2008 fire).

My second sentence wasn't clear, but I was referring to what HiggyBaby said below, about it sometimes sounds like he's isolating them on his own - the Comfortablty Numb video sounded kind of like he was using some kind of software, because it wasn't clean and sounded "warped", like instruments/voices were bleeding through or whatever.

Comfortably Numb made me wonder if that was the case for some.  Some of what he played sounded......odd.

Thanks for that thread, that clears up a lot.

Just out of curiosity, he's got over 200 credits on AllMusic, so yeah, he's definitely been around and knows a helluva lot of people that could get him stems, etc.

This episode he says as much and shows the software he uses
