Hey folks,

I just want to wish you all a Happy new year. I hope 2014 will be jam packed with new musical goodies. I have lots of new videos coming soon to kick off the new year. I will be working hard to bring more video tutorials to accompany some of the transcriptions. As always I will be taking requests for lessons and transcriptions. Feel free to leave me a message in the box below. I will also be getting these requests out as soon as I can.

I’m just finishing up a Scottish tour at the moment. I will be home on the 5th and getting straight to work.

Anyhoo, I wish you all the very best for 2014. I’m looking forward to an exciting year of new music.

Hey Folks,

It’s been a while since I have last reported on what’s happening. Things have been really busy. Currently on the European leg of Snarky Puppy tour for nearing 2 months. We’ve been in 8 different countries and I am now looking forward to heading home on the 18th of November.

I have had a number of emails regarding transcription and lesson requests. I apologies on a slow response. Internet connection has not been great so posting new videos has been difficult.
I have some new videos coming soon. Some of which will be featuring AC Guitars latest instrument so keep an eye out for them.

Here are some pics from my travels.

Hey folks,

Just to let you know what’s been happening in my world.
I have been on a European Tour for the last few weeks. I was home for a week briefly and had the privilege of having AC guitars drop off some Basses for me to try out. We are teaming up for some demo work over the next while. Alan will supply me with some Basses to try out and I will release some demo videos. I will also be at the AC Guitar stand at 2014 London Bass Guitar show.
Please visit AC Guitars website for more information. Here’s a couple of pics of the beautiful Instruments he left me. A 5 string Recurve and a 6 String Fretless Krell model. Two Amazing instruments. Keep an eye out for the upcoming Demo videos.

Stay tuned for more info. If you want to talk about AC Guitars instruments please send me a little message.

Back in Chicago

No Comments

Great couple of days done of the Tour. Met some great peeps in Chicago, Racine and Dubuque. I’m now back in Chicago with a couple of days off. Managed to get along to Lingers Martini bar in the south side where I had my mind blown with Bassist Sharay Reed. Such a nice guy too! To top it all off another great Bassist turned up, Mr Rodney Jones Jr. Was so inspiring to see these guys play. Every musician in the band played it like it was there last gig.

Such a great night and to top it all off Rodney gave me a lift back to my hotel. He let me hear some tracks he’d been working on and his gig with Fred Hammond. Gobsmacked, these guys are the real deal! Aside from being great musicians, these guys are the nicest guys you’ll ever meet.

Please be sure to check em out.

First Tattoo

No Comments

For years I’ve been wanting to get a tattoo so I finally bit the bullet. I booked myself into Tribe 2 in Glasgow with the incredible Raffaella Ricci. I explained what I was looking for and what I wanted to incorporate into the design. A few weeks later she came back with an amazing design. So here it is, the finished design, totally love it.
