YouTube Guitarist of the Week: James Smith

James' blues shuffle is a winner, with killer tone, and killer licks   11-Feb-13

After seeing our post for last week's YouTube guitarist of the week, which was won by Callum Williams, from South Wales, James Smith got in contact with us to share his YouTube channel.

James is a 15-year-old guitarist from the UK, and sent us a link to his blues shuffle video. We were impressed at his phrasing, expressive bending and vibrato, and his overall tone. He's got the blues.

You can watch the video above, for more info on James Smith's music, you can go to his Facebook page.
