Ricky Gervais releases first YouTube guitar lesson of Learn Guitar with David Brent
Today, as part of YouTube’s first Comedy Week, David Brent, Ricky Gervais’s comic creation and star ofBBC mockumentary, The Office, gives his opening full-length guitar lesson. The self-styled “Brentmeister General” is back and as compellingly awkward as ever.
Ricky Gervais catches up with the Office star in Learn Guitar with David Brent.David Brent isn’t so much “teaching” viewers guitar as telling them all about it. “I’m not going to teach you… YOU’RE going to teach you,” he explains and then goes on to decline to teach chord progressions or hand movements.But all hope is not lost. Viewers do get to hear a full version of “Life on the Road,” Brent’s first single. A viral video star in the making à la Andy Bernard? You be the judge.
