Miles Davis – All Blues

Here’s an arrangement of the Miles Davis classic ‘All Blues’ on my Sire H7 (which currently has flatwound strings on it). If you fancy playing along yourself then the backing track is below – take the modal approach to improvising by using G mixolydian over chord I, G dorian over chord IV and G aeolian […]

Steely Dan – Josie (guitar cover)

I’m a massive fan of Steely Dan and have been wanting to do a full cover of one of their songs for a while, so here it is – my instrumental guitar take on their song ‘Josie’ from the Aja album. I’m also sharing the transcription I made of the rhythm guitar part and solo […]

1000 subscribers blues jam!

It looks like I’ve hit the first big YouTube milestone of 1000 subs! Here’s a thank you to all who have supported the channel so far, and a blues jam with my Charvel Pro Mod SoCal Style 2 and my Sire H7. If you fancy a jam yourself then stream the backing track for free […]

Jimi Hendrix ‘Red house’ cover

For a bit of fun I thought I would do a cover of Jimi’s ‘Red House’ using my Charvel (tuned down a semitone). I’ve tried to capture the vibe using only plug-ins that come with Logic Pro X (watch the video for details….) – not what Jimi was using of course, but a fun experiment! […]

Sire h7 – can it do jazz?

I thought I would see what kind of clean jazz tone I could get from my Sire H7 with an arrangement of a great Harold Arlen tune ‘I’ve Got The World On A String’ (made famous by Frank Sinatra). See below for the backing track if you fancy a jam yourself, and do check out […]

Wednesday jam – 26/01/22

This week I’m putting my new semi-hollow Sire H7 through it’s paces! It’s Sire’s take on a Gibson ES335, designed in conjunction with Mr 335 himself, Larry Carlton. Full demo and review to follow soon… Stream the backing track below!

Wednesday Jam – hogmanay special!

It’s nearly new year’s eve (or Hogmanay, as we say in my homeland of Scotland) so in a break from the usual style of music I thought I would record a Scottish Jig (written by the king of Hogmanay himself, accordion extraordinaire Phil Cunningham). I couldn’t resist an electric guitar solo in the middle…. Backing […]

Wednesday Jam – Christmas special!

It’s that festive time of year so I thought some fancy chords by the Christmas tree would be appropriate! This is a solo piece that I put together recently and it occurred to me that it would be the perfect ‘chill-out’ music for about 5.30pm on Christmas day when everyone is stuffed/drunk/asleep. As a Christmas […]
