“I got my first guitar at Christmas when I was 12 years old. Since then I have never ceased to strive to improve my playing, my understanding of music and my ability to communicate my love of what I do. I consider myself massively fortunate to have such a clear picture of how my life should go. Over the years I have made so many friends in the course of gigging, recording, conducting workshops, and sharing my love and enthusiasm for musical instruments.
In this Patreon community I will be making available what I have discovered to be a massive collection of material. This will include transcriptions, live concert footage, studio outtakes, out of print recordings and previously unseen photographs spanning 45 years. As we investigate the full contents of this archive, we will gradually release more material to be available to Patrons.
Meanwhile, we will be creating new transcriptions, lessons, videos and recordings. We will explore my record collection, have conversations with musical friends and collaborators and occasionally examine some of the more interesting and unusual instruments which I come across.
I am excited to welcome you to this new platform which gives me the opportunity to explore and to share my creative history and process.”
For those of you that don’t know, Patreon is a membership platform that connects creators such as musicians and artists with their fans and supporters. For a monthly subscription Patrons get access to exclusive material and behind-the-scenes content not available elsewhere.
