Saif’s Instructional Guitar Videos

Hometown Baghdad viewers should know that when Saif isn’t booby-trapping his house with barbwire, smoking shisha, or talking about his beautiful wife Noor, he is playing guitar. And so he has decided to make a series of instructional videos for people wanting to learn how to play in a variety of styles. Here are the first two. If you like them, subscribe to his youtube channel.

Lesson 1: Triple Stroke Rasgueado

Lesson 2: Forward Arpeggio

    Greetings, this is David from the Ron Paul 2008 Baghdad group. Please check out what’s happening in the U.S. and across the world with the Ron Paul USA presidential campaign. Ron Paul is the true voice of freedom right now in the U.S. He’s for limited government, abolishing the IRS and Federal Reserve, and getting out of Iraq now. Go to to learn more and be sure to check out his videos at his youtube channel. If you’re interested in his message of freedom, please consider joining the Baghdad meetup group, it’s free and we need all the help we can get to combat the main stream medias attempts to marginalize him. -David
