A note from Jay Wilson ...

I humbly submit to you all this link to a video I made:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LzDuShh5nuU&feature=youtu.be


It is, in actuality, for a contest. Please bear with me here....

The challenge of the contest is to write and perform your own unique lead electric guitar accompaniment for a Randy Bachman song (Guess Who, BTO). The winner gets to jam with Randy ( awesome ) and also wins a nice new guitar.

I've pulled out all the stops on this one, even going so far as performing my part on a very old and very unique electric steel guitar made back in 1948. It has a great sound -- searing and heavy.

I think this may be perhaps the best performance I have ever given on any electric instrument. I am fortunate that I happened to be recording it at just the right time I guess. Anyway if my video it gets adequate viewership on YouTube, it might make the shortlist for Randy's viewing and final decision.

Time is of the essence, unfortunately, since I found out about this contest a little late in the game and had to do everything in a bit of a rush. If you would be so kind as to visit the link above today, give it a "LIKE", and also "SHARE" it with your family/friends and also encourage them to share it, I just might have a shot at living a little bit of the rock 'n roll dream!

Either way I really hope you enjoy the video and performance. Leave me some comments so I know what you thought of it. The project was challenging and fun.


Thanks for any help you might be able to give me.

Regards,
J

Avril Lavigne is Recovering

Canadian pop star Avril Lavigne says she's recovering from a months-long battle with Lyme disease. 

The Napanee, Ont.-raised singer-songwriter tells People magazine she was diagnosed with a severe case of the disease last fall. 

In an exclusive cover story on the magazine's website, the 30-year-old says she was bedridden for five months. 

She says she could barely eat, had trouble breathing and moving, and thought she was ``dying.'' 

Lavigne says she thinks she came down with the disease when she was bit by a tick last spring. 

She's been recuperating at her home in Ontario with the help of her mom and her husband, Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger.

If you've got some kids clothes still laying around, you can take them down to the clothing room at the Parkland Crossing.
