The Nashman Studies of Motion 15: Rock and Roll na Jeproks


His Royal Orangeness Karl Willem and PA/PR Gromit enjoying breakfast on the terrace.

Once HRO Karl Willem, PA/PR Gromit, and I entered the Southern Gate of the fort city of Mogador, we immediately realised why it drew the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, the Rolling stones, and countless other musicians. This is the spiritual home of Gnaoua music and ever since Hendrix established a commune at the edge of the desert, jazz and blues in the Maghreb as well.

A fine mist covers this jewel of a city on the Atlantic coast most mornings and evenings. The ethereal glow inspired The Nashman to pay homage to the gods.........I whipped out my air guitar and started playing Lupang Hinirang, ala Hendrix in Woodstock with Star Spangled Banner and Brian May with God Save the Queen on top of Buckingham Palace two years ago, with my magical six-stringed axe...



With Atlantic waves crashing on the ramparts behind them (not visible due to the thick fog), HRO Karl Willem and PA/PR Gromit urge you to ramp up your volume to 11 as The Nashman plays some sweet tunes accompanied by rock god moves....

1. The opening jump off the platform.....are you reaaaaaady to rock?


2. Look how The Nashman effortlessly hammers away at those power chords while flying in midair...


3. The Nashman doing a very diffucult chord progression...



4. Like Hendrix, The Nashman can also play the guitar with his teeth....



Tha.....tha....tha.....aaaaats all for now folks....


The Nashman has left the building. The Nashman has left the building. Now available on iTunes music store get the latest official album The Nashman IV: Instrumental works on Air Guitar.

HRO Karl Willem, PA/PR Gromit and The Nashman indeed have their photo fairy who travels with them. The only think I can say about this photo fairy is that she ...... I'd love to share our 'in the making of' secrets but that will come out in the 5-disc extended dvd version.....

yes, this year's air guitar champhionships were held in london i think. but you know, like surfing, some choose to compete, some just do it for the soul experience. i subscribe to the latter...
