neville.marten@futurenet.com THE STATE OF my scrappy technique has been gnawing away at me recently. However okay you think you are live, or messing around in front of the TV, record yourself and all manner of horrors come to light if your technique is not up to scratch. Live, the notes are forgotten in seconds, but in the studio there’s nowhere to hide.I’ve been putting some of my own stuff down lately, and when I listen back it’s often painful: I’m hearing explosions in front of notes, extraneous noises around them, and pick scrapes after the lick has finished. It’s quite disheartening. There’s a blues solo I played that I actually liked (a rare thing), but there’s so much extraneous noise on it that, if we can’t trim it off one…

food for thought

Justin shows that playing and singing is eminently doable (TINA K) I’m just back from the NAMM show in California and I got to meet loads of people, many of whom mentioned they read GT and a few suggesting I do an article on singing and playing guitar at the same time. I wasn’t gifted with a great voice but I found singing while playing wasn’t difficult – but I had figured out a plan which I use, and I’ll share it with you here. There is a video lesson on this topic on my website; if you’d like to hear the exercises, just type ‘sing’ into the search box at the top.Start with an easy song. I’m not including this in my 10 steps, but it’s really important…

session shenanigans

On a rare free day during this year’s ‘Strictly’ arena tour, I found myself in reflective mood as I waited for my broken body to heal sufficiently to put plectrum to Pasadoble once more. Perhaps it was the conflation of our Nottingham venue with the iconic Marley classic, I Shot The Sheriff (Sheriff of Nottingham – geddit?) that rekindled memories of my own brush with Jamaican rhythms. And near death. But in a career consisting of The Gig, The Bad And The Ugly, who could have known that my first touring experience might well have been my last?It began promisingly enough with the offer of money and its instantaneous acceptance. The remaining loose ends drifted past my telephone receiver with scant regard for the details. Upon mature reflection, I…

instrumental inquisition!

GT: What is it about guitar instrumentals that appeals to you? BB: A long time agor, at age 13 or 14, I decided on the guitar as my instrument of choice as to how I would try to express myself musically. After that, I sought out role models who represented how I wanted to hear music expressed on the guitar. So, this study and edification was really a labour of love and was pursued as much for the purpose of enjoyment as for any other reason. My heroes verified for me that a melody could be conveyed in a full and complete way, without the need for words. That validation fuelled my quest to become a guitar player that could pull off that feat. GT: What can an…
