"Yup- I often wear boots when performing. Some reasons. 1. a heavy boot enables you to stamp out a rhythm . 2. Sadly the preparation and load out of a gig requires the movement of some heavy items - best to have sturdy footwear.  3.  Whilst…"

"Thanks Dan/Hambone. They started at the same time as me. Difference is, I was 36 and they were 6 and 9 :-) The younger boy, Benji, is now approaching 17 and did a nice version of Ebon coast recently. He recorded it in a couple of hours at my house.…"

Grade 6 music exams

Well done to my sons taking their grade 6 guitar exams today. They did OK despite an exam environment that was far from conducive. My guess is they wil each get a merit, but we will not know for 4 weeks. I'm just glad that 14 and 17 year old boys feel motivated to go through these grades. The eldest was resistant but now admits he has learned a lot. Understanding the musical elements helps with his soloing inspiration especially. Proud of them both.
