Bio

Trying to finish my open tracks before starting any more. That means a bit of effort on my behalf esp. where there's no vocals haha! Gonna get this debut album out this year!!

Guitarist for more years than I care to remember, and I dabble in keyboards and vox (if you can call it that!)

I have no musical training. I know about 2 scales and one of those is ginandtonic.

I dry record all guitars then re-amp them through a Marshall JCM800 Lead amp picking Cabinet sims to suit the track. This gives me much better control over the tone I'm after. I upload re-amped tracks with limited effects. The naming convention I use is so I know what amp settings, guitar and pickup used if I need to re-track or add things.

For example, RA N685637 ESH is a re-amped track where I've used the neck pickup on my Epiphone Sheraton II and the Presence, Bass, Middle, Treble, Master and Pre-amp settings.

I work full time so this is an evening/late night/weekend thing for me, but I'm still open to invites to get me out of my musical comfort zone.

I like old school to rock, blues to soul, pop to hip-hop/rap including Stones, Beatles, Led Zep, Doors, Kooks, Oasis (Def Maybe), Ian Brown, Jackson 5, Feeder, James Brown, Aerosmith (70's early stuff), Keane, Killers, Radiohead, Foo Fighters, Verve, Richard Ashcroft, Pearl Jam, Prodigy, Snow Patrol, Elbow, Black Crowes, Chemical Brothers, Arctic Monkeys, The Clipse, Neil Young, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Guns N' Roses, ABBA, Doors, Traffic, Blind Faith, Massive Attack.

My Showcase Tracks

I jumped on this simple and strangely addictive track by Peter Rand. Nick on drums - loving those triplets and fills; Scott on Bass - great tone and phrasing

Big thanks to Todd and Nelson, one of my favourite tracks

Another fav, thanks to Tez for lyrical inspiration, Paul's groovy bass line and Todd beefy drums

Thanks to Nigel (drums), Steve (lyrics and melody) and Armand (bass) on this one

Inspired by a real life tragedy. Todd's on drums, Nelson's on bass, me on everything else. Don't let it slip away
