New digital single release...

 

August 23 is the launch of a new track, The Balcony Bunch (Band Version), a single released to online streaming services. The composition was inspired by my sons, and features two of them on the recording; Adrian on Drums, Joshua on Bongos. I love playing music with my boys!

It's a fun track, it somehow reminds me of a sit-com theme, and I hope it makes you smile! Check it out, streaming now:

un-learning - re-learning Classical Gas

 

Hello!

Have you ever had to 'unlearn' a skill that's totally ingrained, and then had to re-learn it in a new way?

As a follow-up to last week's video request for Classical Gas (thanks for all your comments), I was rummaging through a box of old VCR tapes & came across a TV performance from 1998, where I was asked to step in for Tommy Emmanuel at a major outdoor concert event in Sydney.

I hope you enjoy the video...

(The actual TV performance starts at 2:17)

 

I'm 15 again, re-learning Classical Gas. (Video Request)

 

John, a member of the 'Sunshine Coast Guitar Orchestra' asked me if I would video a performance of the Mason Williams 1968 instrumental hit Classical Gas.

That sounded like a great idea - I've been playing that tune since I was 15 - but it got me thinking; there are so many versions of this tune around, with many variations...so, I thought, lets go back to the source...and for the past few days, I've been 15 again, learning Classical Gas all over again - and loving it!

Austria guitar workshop 2019 - register now!

 

Don't miss out...a few places still remain!

How does 4 days of guitar tuition in the beautiful Austrian countryside sound? Welcome to the 'Austria Guitar Retreat' at Seminarhotel Jagdschloß Wolfstein, Kochholz August 25-29, 2019. Its all inclusive - meals, accommodation, tuition! (Partners welcome too). Limited to 14 participants.

video request: 'Going Home' (Theme from 'Local hero')

 

Another 'mailing list video request' - 'Local Hero' is the debut soundtrack album by Mark Knopfler, released in 1983. 'Going Home' is probably the most well-known track from the movie, and I remember Dire Straits closing their concert with it when I saw them in Sydney in 1986.

In the 80s, I used to perform this track with my band Hat Trick.  Thanks John Smith for this request!
