New YouTube Video – Enter The Rep

Returning to YouTube after a couple of weeks break, I thought it would be a good idea to re-introduce the Rep in its new format. Featuring picks from Jim Dunlop, Purple Plectrums, Stone Age, BHL, V Picks and Metapixs, it’s a simple portrayal of what I do here, and sets a precedent for the rest of the year. I’m trying to make the videos more concise, with better camera work and more pointed content, and if there’s anything you’d like to see, please let me know.

New YouTube Video – Top 5 (or 6) Jazz XL Alternatives

This week’s video concerns the greatest shape in the HR! book, the Jazz XL. Pioneered by Jim Dunlop and a glorious item, the Jazz XL is my personal favourite, and although this video could have been many, many minutes long, I’ve kept it a sensible length to give you guys a relatively concise approach to this thing. Let me know your choices of XL’s in the comments – remember, there’s no bad choices in the Plectroverse!
