Top Nashville Session Guitarist Derek Wells - Creating Pro Sounding Guitar Parts

A little long winded at times -- especially in the intro (jump ahead as needed), but I LOVE watching shit like this. Tim Pierce did some of these a while back and their great (too).  There are great guitarists everywhere, but there's a real difference in watching how a pro session guy thinks/goes about creating and tracking parts that take songs to a pro-level.  Watching stuff like this can give you ideas to make your own tracks better.

In this video, Wells does most of this composing in real-time and mostly without any clams -- usually in one take. There's no fumbling around or working shit out. Every nuance is on the money. It's impressive shit.

I threw me guitar out. Why bother? Why bother? Use it as a coffee table. Because I can't play it like that.
