Hey guys, I came across a pretty cool bass guitar midi software while surfing around the net.  If you are starting out and been wanting to learn how to play a bass guitar or a guitar this might be a program for you.
This program allows you to load in your favorite midi songs and then show you how to play the bass or guitar chords of the song.  I made a quick video showing you how the software works. Check it out

You could download the free version here and see if you like it.

Growing up in Thailand, I never had a chance to play a musical instrument or have my own band. I was too poor at the time and still now! I am very anti-talent when it comes to music and it’s very hard for me to overcome. Just last year, I got myself an electric guitar. I had no clue what to  do with it or how hard can it be to learn but I just I knew was that needed it!

5.  Lamvong Lao – Leum Lai Ban Fan
Listen to a Lao band in Thailand playing the song “Leum Lao Ban Pha” with the guitar intro! Exceptional guitar piece. Video from YouTube.

4. Santana – Moon Flower
At the time, I didn’t know the name song but I just love the guitar intro solos of the song. Way to go Santana!

3. Loso – Somsan
Loso is great! Probably one of the greatest songs of all time..with very awesome ending solos!

2. Wanipop – Carabao
Thai band – they are good! The solo part is very inspiring. The first time I heard the song was just amazing to me.

1. Morlum – Motasai Hang

I love the guitar sound playing to this style of music. I guess I am a country boy.
