Inspiration on demand!

It isn't very often that you find an artist who absolutely amazes you with each and every song that they play. I mean of course we all have our favorite bands or musicians who make great tunes that we love listening to for a while. But after some time their songs, however good they may be, become tiring to you after a certain number of plays and so you seek other artists to keep your music palette nice and fresh. Well I've discovered one exception to this particular trend. One man who with his amazing display of keyboard prowess, breaks the cycle. His name is Ronald Jenkess. Yes, Ronald Jenkees. I discovered him about a year ago on Youtube while looking for new piano pieces to play. Somehow I stumbled on to one of his more hip hop-ish songs but that was all it took to get me hooked. I've been listening to his stuff regularly ever since and because his music has impressed me so much I've decided that I should go ahead and cover one or more of songs on my guitar as tribute to the man.

You don't have to take my word for it of course just check him out below. However, I must tell you now that while Ronald may come off as eccentric, he is without a doubt a bona fide bad-ass! Enjoy!
