    Default Fair Warning Guy on YT?

    Whatever happened to that dude who had original compositions on YT that sounded like they shoulda been on FW?
    He took them off years ago. Did he ever release them? I wouldn't mind having them in the collection.

    I fucking loved that guy!

    Craig Parker Adams.

    He had "Las Lunas" and another tune that sounded exactly like a leftover from FW.

    Out of every guitarist on youtube, THAT GUY was my favorite, because he just
    NAILED that FW tone and wrote great original music.

    Just found some of his stuff on Apple Music under Craig Parker Adams. Never listened to any of his stuff before this thread. Just listened to 2 of his songs on Apple Music, some good stuff! Very Eddie like.

    "Hold Everything" and "Las Lunas" were THE tracks!

    Very, very FW-esque, up to that level.
    He posted a bit at CVH.com, and was a really nice dude.

    But i liked the fact he was creative with it, and made great song ideas in the FW mould.
    Even the drums were dead on.

    I expected him to become a youtube giant, but then he kinda dissapeared.

    That's him! Thanks, Jape.

    Those songs are amazing! Never heard anyone capture that FW sound so good.

    I remember "Hold Everything" had a vid with a car driving down the Strip at night. Not on his site. He musta tossed it.

    Yeah, I thought this guy would dominate YT as well. He just yanked everything and disappeared. Too bad.
    He has a record....didn't know that. Some of the other tunes are pretty cool.
    He's gotta Jamie's Cryin' jam on there.

    Remember the video for "Las Lunas," where the cute asian girls were dancing in sequence
    to the music?

    How did he do that?

    I'm not sure if he borrowed the footage and it fit the music, or he actually hired them
    for his video?

    I believe he said his day gig was a studio/session player, in the California area.

    I don't know how but I missed that vid back then. Remember the song but not that video. It's definitely a classic.
    It's on his site now.

    I would guess he found that somewhere. Otherwise, I think the video quality would be a bit better.
