I'm a big fan of Weezer...I'm a big fan of Russ_Buss...This channel has "Win" written all over it. I'm on my way to go sub now! :D

Such a killer project. Definitely one of my favorite bands of all time (the Blue album was the first CD purchase of mine I think). I've listened the Blue album and Pinkerton too many times to count.

Sadly I missed out on two opportunities to see them when I was in high school.

Can't wait to see how you tackle Only in Dreams! Probably my favorite track from the Blue Album (and can almost bring me to tears every time!).

Bravo on the first track!

Sounds like a really ambitious project! Had to subscribe to this. You're already off to a great start. "My Name Is Jonas" is one of my favorite Weezer tracks, and you nailed it. :D

Very cool and worthy project.

If you're going to do some B-sides don't forget "Jamie" that's a personal fave.

(If you haven't done your charts yet for "Buddy Holly" I put one up in the Tabs section a short while back that's reasonably accurate if you need it. It's one the TCUO just started working on...)

I'll be watching as this goes along..

Weezer was my favorite of the Seven Dwarfs. Right after Spunky, and Pukie.

Dammit, have to look Weezer up on Wikipedia now! (Erm... sounds like the name of a river in Germany... *boohoo* I'm so ignorant!)

I just hope they're relevant enough to be mentioned... hmm, but if Russ starts a new channel, they must be!!

Yes, I found them!

For everyone else who wants to know:
Look it up here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weezer

Awesome songs so far, Russ! Excellent uke-ing and great harmonies.

Wowwwwwww!

If I picked any band to do this for, it definitely would not be Weezer. Even so, I was a fan of Weezer back in the Blue Album days and it's still an impressive undertaking none-the-less.

Good luck!

Ah, my students (high schoolers) were delighted to walk into English class to find their crazy teacher playing My Name Is Jonas on the uke during passing period.

Many thanks!
