neville.marten@futurenet.com SLIDE! IT’S ONE of those things, isn’t it? If you’re anything like me, whether it’s Bonnie Raitt, George Harrison or Derek Trucks there’s something about a great slide player that evokes more than the notes themselves. I suppose it’s the ultimate expression on the guitar, especially when the player has mastered a great slide vibrato (weirdly, George often used no vibrato and yet remains one of the most expressive of all slide guitarists, and one of my favourites). But my slide playing is rubbish. I’ve done it live many times, in exposed situations too, but I’ve always felt like I was skating on thin ice - and on someone else’s pond, too! I’m actually in the process of putting some of my own songs down, and have decided one of them…

food for thought

I’ve been reading (and thinking) a lot about the future lately. Maybe it’s fatherhood or the chaotic state of the world at the moment. But the author Yuval Noah Harari has brought up some fascinating ideas about music and art that I’d like to share and explore with you. His book Homo Deus should be required reading for all humans. We can try to hide from it if we wish, but technology is coming at us fast, and the advancements in many areas can arrive very quickly. Big data is collecting info on us from every direction and getting to know us better than we know ourselves. These are incredible and helpful in areas like medicine and car safety, but scary in marketing and in the manipulation of consent. Yes, yes –…

session shenanigans

“An axe, an axe, my kingdom for an axe! (with apologies to William Shakespeare). Or if you will, “Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent having the right guitar in your hands at the right time”. And let me assure you that in the wacky world of rock and roll, that ostensibly simple task can often take on the complexity of solving Rubik’s cube while hang gliding. And so it came to pass that one dark January day, five instruments, a flight-cased amp, pedal board and accessories box left John Henry’s rehearsal studios in London’s deeply unfashionable Kings Cross industrial estate, and travelled to Birmingham. This in preparation for another round of Strictly Come Dancing 2019 - The Live Arena Tour. A relatively straightforward exercise to be sure, having followed on…

instrumental inquisition!

GT: What is it about instrumentals that appeals to you? MB: I approach instrumentals and songs in exactly the same way. They need to be ‘complete’ musically in their basic form. Sometimes a song I have written becomes an instrumental and the opposite happens as well. Taking away the impact that words have for the listener, I’m left with a clear vision of a finished piece of music and I have total control of the end product. GT: What can an instrumental provide a listener that a vocal song can’t? MB: I think the listener will focus on a vocal performance and the lyrical content with a song. An instrumental focuses on the guitar (or mandolin etc) and the construction of the music is much more apparent. This gives the writer a wider…
