    I do wish that the internet had been around when I learnt to play the first time around, it is such a wonderful resource.  On the other hand there is something to be said for learning by ear, dropping the needle, and by grafting for every bit of knowledge and new discovery.  That teaches you to be more self sufficient IMO.  The danger of the TAB and YT generation is what seems to be an homogenisation of technique, approach and style, with less individualism and innovation.  YMMV.

    However, given the choice I would take the vast library of the possible that the internet has opened us for us all.  I think channels like Rick's take an intelligent approach that opens as many doors for learning, progression, and individualism as a hungry and enquiring mind could hope for.

    That is one downside of copyright being too strictly enforced  (IMO).

    Although there is obviously advantage to be had by many parties with this sort of YT content, there is the obvious marketing upside to the rights holder of brand/band/song awareness, proliferation, knock on sales potential, up-selling of the whole catalogue, and performing rights revenue, etc.  I have no idea why the industry is so tight arsed !

    Does anyone know what software program Beato is using to isolate parts of the track? For example, he often will isolate just the guitar or drums only like he has a mixing desk on his pc.

    My Life As A One-Man Band ~ Tommy Emmanuel ~ TEDxMelbourne

    Tommy Emmanuel created a life for himself as a one-man band and has become one of Australia's most respected musicians. With light vim and pure talent, he demonstrates his unique playing style, which is notably a development of the Travis picking technique and blending of rhythm and melody.

    In his career, he's played on recordings for Air Supply and Men at Work and in his twenties he joined one of Australia's biggest rock acts, Dragon. Now, as a two-time Grammy nominee with a career spanning five decades, he has, for several years, performed over 300 concerts annually.

    That's exactly what he has @Steve-O ! Over the years, Rick has acquired the individual tracks for hundreds of tunes.

    Cheers @digitalkettle I had a feeling that it was all original rather than a clever software solution.  It would be great if you could get that level of isolation though.  I guess it is only a matter of time until someone applies AI to the problem.


    Thank you so much for the Fleetwood Mac link, excellent :)

    Really enjoying these. Watched a Van Halen one last night (running with the devil) always great to hear Eddie’s playing in isolation, and that trick with the reverb panned hard to one side...brilliant. 

    Also really enjoyed the Fleetwood Mac one, i’d never noticed those long feedback notes in the second verse until he pointed them out.
