neville.marten@futurenet.com HAVE YOU EVER encountered what I call ‘fretboard blindness’? I ask because it happens to me sometimes due to anxiety on gigs, and I experienced a bit of it recently at our UK Guitar Show at Olympia. In fact myself, Mick Taylor of That Pedal Show, and Jamie Dickson of Guitarist, all did while playing our Experience Cream set. Our Eric and Jimi songlist was great; we’d rehearsed (although not quite enough) and were pleased we’d achieved a good turnout.We all had set pieces and improvised solos to play, so a good mix to get to grips with. But it was the end of a hectic first day at our first guitar show; the audience was our readers who we didn’t want to sell ourselves short in front of; and lots…

food for thought

About two weeks ago I had a shocking accident. I pulled down on a newly fitted removable tow bar to check I had pushed it in correctly, and I hadn’t. So out it came and crashed onto my fourth finger waiting directly beneath it on the concrete. Ouch was not the only word I used to describe the pain but all told it seems I’ve gotten off pretty lightly. It still hurts to play at times, but I was worried I might have shattered the bones in it. Okay sympathy seeker, you may ask, so why are you putting your little sob story in your column then? This injury has really got me thinking again about the ‘right fingers’ for the right things, and why so many great players seems to…

session shenanigans

Those of you old enough to remember house calls by your local GP (ask your designated carer if in doubt) will recall the black leather valise that accompanied those visits, crammed with the tools of the trade: stethoscope, thermometer, sphygmomanometer (look it up) and other paraphernalia. Similarly, I recall waiting for the arrival of the nice lady from the film company at the end of a patch of movie sessions, as per the Union agreement. And of more relevance, the expensive attaché case that came with her, complete with eye watering piles of cash that complied with the rule of immediate payment for the orchestra upon completion. Most professions seem to accessorise themselves with a bag of bits: the electrician’s tool box, the footballer’s kit bag, the plumber’s holdall complete with…

instrumental inquisition!

GT: What is it about instrumentals that appeals to you? ML: You can travel down any road you like in an instrumental, even within the performance itself. Instrumentals give you the freedom to paint any and all emotions, and a great instrumental can be timeless. GT: What can an instrumental provide a listener that a vocal song can’t? ML: I do a lot of instrumentals and improvising at my shows; it gets very interesting when the whole becomes bigger than the sum of the individual players. I’m addicted to this, it’s like musical poetry that everyone experiences together. A great vocal song of course is just as powerful but in a very different way. The meaning of a vocal song is usually spelled out for you, which can be a good thing. GT: Is…
