The Post-Apocalyptic Tin Can Amplifier

In the case of an apocalyptic nuclear fallout, and you emerge from an underground bomb shelter seeing nothing but a wasteland on top of what was once a thriving human civilization - have no fear! Let this video be your guide to scavenging the parts necessary to build yourself a guitar amplifier so that you can waste your numbered days away shredding guitar and rotting from the side-effects of radiation!

Guitar - Hallelujah (Leonard Cohen, Jeff Buckley)

I haven't done a live recording in a while, so here we go! This one's super short. I was just messing around with the chords to Hallelujah all day while being sick and bed ridden. It's the days like these that make me appreciate the guitar so much - there's not many instruments that you can play while lying down in a nest of blankets and comfort.

Anyway, here's what came out of it, I'll need to come back and add a proper intro to this recording some other time.

Guitar - Sia Mashup (Titanium, Elastic Heart, Chandelier)

I discovered that mashing up songs really doesn't come easy for me. Here's my attempt at arranging a medley of Sia Furler's hit pop songs and the songs I used in it were Wild Ones, Titanium, Elastic Heart, Chandelier, and Big Girls Cry.
