Julien Régnier-Krief is a 45-years-old professional musician from France. In 2013 he made an amazing video cover by the song of Dire Straits, “Sultans of Swing” on his ukulele. The video became viral on YouTube so we decided to share it on our blog. Click here to watch it!
Today, we would like to share one more amazing video by Julien. Namely, on May 3rd, 2020, he published his video cover for the song “Brothers in Arms.” He played at all the instruments that you will see in the video below.
“I am a professional musician and also I’ve built all the guitars you can hear it here. Of course, I’m a big fan of Mark Knopfler’s music, songs, and guitar playing,” he said for our blog. The video that you will soon watch it is very professional. We have noticed the guitar he was playing on it, so we asked him about the name and brand of the guitar.
“The guitar is from JRK Lutherie, it is my brand,” he said. In addition to being a musician, Julien is a guitar producer. He has his own place where he produces guitars and also later he plays on them.
On his personal Facebook profile, Julien has written some interesting facts about his newest video cover. Here is what he has written:
“When you’re ten years old and you come across this, it scores, in-depth and definitely. Since then, I’ve been obsessed with this guitar sound. I’ve had to listen to this track over a million times, end by not, to repeat some passages for hours. Yes, I know, it’s about dementia!”
“Today, I’m still not there, but what does it matter. On the other hand, looking, I’m getting closer especially with this brand new kit of Humbuckers…that I just finished. It looks like I’m using the micro handle, but actually, I’m adding a little bit of a micro rack. And it makes that sound, this sound wanted for 35-years.”
“For the curious, so I use this Ohm type LP, 628 mm fork, case and handle in Cedro, maple table, connected in a volume pedal Ernie Ball, a full-drive 2 pedal, then heading to the map his sound, with a Friedman Buxom amp emulation. For the even more curious, here is the order in which I recorded all the parties:
1. Acoustic guitar model D-13 / Capo 4
2. Acoustic guitar model Ohm (granted in Mi-b)
3. Light box / Stomp box
4. Low model Newcaster, micro JRK type Vintage precision
5. B3 (emulation)
6. Harmonica (Hohner)
“And finally, solo guitar and singing, at the same time because it’s inseparable for me!”
