What's happening January 2009

Well, not much is happening.  I went to "my country retreat" over the holidays and even though I have a steel string and a nylon string there, I only played once in 2 weeks, and even then nothing new, just a refresher on all my standard stuff.

So as it stands, I'm still working on getting "Mad World" up to playable; noodling with "Head over Feet" to make sure it plays well; I'm still also noodling with "Space Oddity" which is coming along nicely.

I recently got in touch with a guy who had been playing with some of my Pink Floyd stuff and does Pink Floyd stuff of his own.  I've been working on a guitar arrangement of "Great Gig in the Sky" for a long time now, it's coming along nicely but it is not high priority and it would be years before I finished it.  I sent him a copy and a quick vid of my playing it and discussing what I'm doing with it, he seems keen to run with it.

I may have mentioned before that I have a long long term ambition to do a fingerstyle arrangement of the whole of "Dark Side of the Moon".  He likes the sound of that and may put his hand to assisting - which means something might come out within a decade!



  1. I stumbled across your videos on Youtube. I am just now learning to play, or should I struggling to play? I love your versions of Whiter Shade Of Pale and Losing My Religion. You play beautifully! I would truly love to hear what you could do with the Enya song Only Time.

    Please keep posting your videos. You are my inspiration.


  2. Hi Jaw, I've dicovered your Youtube page some time ago, through being a fan of Naudo (shame on Youtube for removing his account!).
    I think you're doing a great job in covering Naudo, as well as transcribing into tabs, your dedication is impressive, and we can see the progress you've made.
    I personnally don't look for tabs as a way of playing, but I understand how helpfull they can be for guitar players.
