http://youtu.be/ObktuG_Ro2M Good morning! Another day, and another cover. This time I've made an arrangement of 'Ho Hey' by the Lumineers, played on my Takamine TAN40C. This version pretty much sticks to the chords used in the original but with the melody placed into the mix along with some broken chords/bass line parts. Let us know what you think!
http://youtu.be/62E8fHbK2AQ So today I decided to record some video demos of various pieces that I've arranged for solo guitar over the last couple of months. Today I've started with 'Bring Him Home' from Les Misérables played on my old Classical Guitar (Vicente Sanchis Model 29). Hope you enjoy and look out for more arrangements soon!
We're now into our fourth year at live @ the Rose in Kinston upon Thames and its become tradition to not only go for a pre gig meal at GBK but also to have a crazy photo session of all the band kit being used throughout the show. This year in particular for me has marked a significant milestone in terms of the equipment that I'm now using for live shows as you can see via the pics in this post. For the show [...]
Last night I got the opportunity to play a rather unique gig in the form of Rockaoke, which karaoke with a live band! Very good fun n banter, of which the party featured its very own Johnny Cash, Dolly Parton, Ozzy Osbourne and many Amy Winehouse's to name a few! Decided to revise my pedalboard for the show of which I've now got a MXR Micro Amp for clean boosts and for more gain when driving the dirty channel on the Rivera, and the [...]

Tonight's show was the Royal Festival Hall in Southbank and once the crowd started coming in, I had to take the opportunity to take a shot of how incredible the view was from stage, especially for the kids singing and playing this evening. All around an excellent evening for music education of which I hope to see more events in future.

This is a 'tribute' song recorded when he died back in 2006. Now that five years have passed the lads involved with this believe this may be the ideal time to get round to filming a video. To go viral or not, that's the question![soundcloud width="100%" height="81" params="" url="http://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/15771316"]
