I have My Compositions and some of my favorite James Taylor Songs posted on YouTube. I noticed I had copyright claims on his songs. I did email James and do have permission for the YouTube content. Thank you so much James Taylor. You are the best for my Acoustic Guitar work. 

BTW, My Acoustic Guitar is a Taylor!

My own Compositions

All my tunes were recorded on a Fostex DMT 8vL - An 8 channel simul-sync recorder where I could play and sing all the parts 1 track at a time while listening to the previously recorded tracks.

My James Taylor "Set".

When it comes to acoustic guitar, James Taylor is the drop dead best. I'm not much of a "Strummer". James Taylor's tunes have intricate finger picking. That combined with having to sing at the same time is incredibly difficult. He makes it look easy. It's not, and it's a real challenge for me, like mental Pilates. 2015 videos are from the house in East Haddam, CT. 2017 are from Erica's Bristol CT apartment.
