** This is the very first “Guest Session” here at the Laptop Sessions acoustic music blog. The concept of this regular Friday post is that, each Friday, the Laptop Session will be recorded and written entirely by a guest performer.
For our first choice, we bring you a video from Andrew E., a YouTube regular. Tonight, he brings us a new band to the blog. This is Green Day’s “Wake Me Up When September Ends,” from their American Idiot album.
Enjoy, and hurry back for Chris Moore Monday! **
By Andrew E.
I Love Green Day. I’ve been listening to them since 03. More importantly, playing guitar has been a big part of my life. I got my first guitar from my grandpa when I was 5. Since then, I’ve been consistently trying to improve my playing.
We need more Guest Sessions submissions! So, sit down, pull up your acoustic guitar and camera, post the video on YouTube, and CLICK HERE!
Another Friday, and another Guest Session! For this week, we took a look back into the archive of Guest Sessions submissions and found a second song from our very first “Guest” player, Andrew E. His debut on the Laptop Sessions music video cover blog was on January 9th of this year with Green Day’s “Wake Me Up When September Comes,” a track from Green Day’s American Idiot album.
Well, he also sent us more of a “deep track” from the album, a fan favorite for some of the Green Day faithful. This is “Give Me Novacaine” from American Idiot. You’ll hear the name “Jimmy” mentioned in the song. You may ask, who is that? Because American Idiot is a concept album, all of the tracks link together in both theme and plotline of a story. If you listen to the album, you’ll learn the entire story of this boy named St. Jimmy, a rock freedom fighter of sorts.
If you’re interested you should check it out… because I definitely don’t have room here to explain just now! For now, here’s Andrew E.’s preview:
