Check out Desmond Child’s documentary, TWO: The Story of Roman & Nyro

My friend Desmond has a film out about his family.

Saw the film twice so far and had dinner with Desmond and Roman & Nyro last Monday night.
I first met Roman & Nyro in Hollywood in 2005 when they were 3 years old.
They are now 11 and are amazing kids!

Screening Q&A in San Francisco with the cast.

Wanna sing or play a guitar solo on this track?

Posted in guitar, johnnybeane, music, studio on May 22, 2013 by johnnybeane

It’s an original i call “Heavymellow”.

Feel free to sing on it or solo over it then make a youtube video and post a video response.

Audio download link is http://johnnybeane.bandcamp.com/track/heavy-mellow

I recorded the tune in Drop-D & it’s very close to “concert pitch” but not totally so u may have to tune to it.

This isn’t a contest and there’s no deadline.

Like to see what you guys come up with!


At NAMM 1/25 1/26 1/27 In Anaheim, CA.
