On Saturday August 10th, I'll be doing a Blues Rock Soloing Masterclass with Guitar Breaks. It will be in Warefield at Milk Shed studios, the same place we have the Jam Camps. Last year it was a great success, so I'm really looking forward to doing it again this year. We'll spend the day looking at a variety of licks and approaches that you can use to take your soloing to a new and exciting place. You'll get some one on one time with me to look at your playing in detail, and by the end of the day you will have composed your own solo, which I will video you playing to a backing track. I'll send you the video so you have it for posterity. If you'd like more info or to book a place, go to the Guitar Breaks website. Hope to see some of you there!

Jan 2024

You can find the second release of new music from me over on the New Releases page here. A slightly mellower affair this time round, "Night Driving" is availble on all of the usual streaming sites. Hope you enjoy it!

 

Two weeks to go until our next Jam Camp on Saturday Jan 20th. We've got BB King and Gary Moore this time. The songs will be "The Thrill Is Gone" and "Walking By Myself", both fantastic tunes with lots of room to jam and enjoy ourselves. There's still a few spaces left, so if you'd like to come along, just head over to the Guitar Breaks website and book a spot. Look forward to seeing some of you there.

On Saturday Nov 18th we'll be having our next Jam Camp.  We'll be featuring the music of Jimmy Page and Rory Gallagher this time.  The songs will be Since I've Been Lovin' You and Bad Penny, both of which sum up so much of what I love about playing guitar.  It's going to be a great day of guitar playing!  You can book on the link below.

Oct 2023

I'm going to start periodically releasing new music here, on the New Releases page and on my Facebook page as well. It'll mostly be instrumental music for now and will be quite eclectic genre-wise. Here's the first one - "Barracuda" - named after the American muscle car, not the scary fish or the very fantastic song by Heart! With a bit of luck I might accumulate enough tunes to put out my first solo album before I turn 60. LOL! Enjoy.

Sept 2023

On Saturday Sept 16th the Guitar Breaks Jam Camps wil be back! This Jam Camp will feature the playing of two legendary guitarists; Carlos Santana and Paul Kossoff. We'll be playing "Black Magic Woman" and "Wishing Well" with the Jam Camp band and spend a whole day diving into what makes the playing of these to guys so timeless. Impeccable phrasing and sense of melody is a good place to start! Thanks to everyone who has made the first year of the Jam Camps so fun and rewarding! Hope to see you on the 16th. You can book and get more info on the link below.

I'm really looking forward to playing on Sept 2nd with The cast of Sunny Afternoon, the Ray Davies/Kinks musical, at Rushfest on Southern Green, Rushden, Buntingford, SG9 OSW. You'd struggle  to beat a back catolgue of songs like Ray Davies, it's going to be a great night. We're on at 8:30. You can get tickets on the link below.

July 2023

I'm going to be doing a Blues and Classic Rock soloing masterclass with the folks over at Guitar Breaks in a couple of weeks on Saturday July 29th. It'll be an all day event, so we'll have loads of time to get into everything that makes these genres so fun to play. I'll have the chance to sit down on a one to one basis with everyone and give you some constructive feedback on your playing and suggest some things you can work on to improve in the future. There will be lots of concepts and licks to learn, jamming and you will all work on writing your own solos. It's at the same venue as the Jam Camps; Warfield, just outside of Bracknell. You can book by going to the Guitar Breaks website. Looking forward to hopefully seeing some of you there!
