No thanks, close this window
Not been on this site for a while. For the last year Ive been working on a full acoustic instrumental set - most of which Ive had to write from scratch, though some of the older electric stuff translates quite well - the shoal for example works fairly well (but kills your fingers).
I'm now almost at the gigging phase - it took me ages to work out how to record the acoustic to best effect with the limited gear Ive got but Im now fairly consistently pleased with the results. My only problem now is actually playing the pieces properly - Ive found out that my head and fingers just dont communicate as they should do sometimes.
So, in short, a change of direction, something totally new and gigs before the end of the year. I hope.
In other news, the Young Gorgie Surf Team are still going - Andy and I get together and do a lot of talking about things quite often but we dont actually do very much (as always) - but we do have three new ttracks and another two in the works since we put the CD out.
Im also back playing with some old chums in a band called Bluesoul, who do rock covers. We play Whistlebinkies in Edinburgh about once a month. Great fun!
Im not knocking Broadjam but I doubt Ill ever pay them money to host my website, however I wont be taking this site down any time soon.
Not been logged in here for ages - I must spend more time on this site!
