Guitar

I don’t claim great skill as a guitarist, though I have a diploma of sorts and have earned a living from the guitar in the remote past – an even more precarious one than the one I have now, though. The guitar, particularly the classical guitar, still claims a good deal of my time and mental energy, so it had to be represented on this site. Unfortunately, apart from the indispensable forum run by Jean-François Delcamp, there is not a great deal of very useful stuff on the Internet related with the classical guitar – here are some feeds which I hope are of more use to you than to me, and towards the bottom of the page you’ll find a few links mostly related with classical guitarists. Drop me a comment if you know a feed or link which might fit (or just to say hi).

      Glad you liked the quality of the paper used in my books. You may be interested to know that the paper used was 105gsm Matt Art for the interior pages, with the cover printed on gloss 1/s lamination artboard at a weight 260gsm.

      Hi, and thanks for the post :) My work might not be the ‘Classical Guitar’ people are expecting, but somewhere in my head I did these videos with the aim of causing a sensation on the viewer similar to the one that might happen if you are a Tom & Jerry fan (as I am) and watch Beavis & Butthead with usual cartoon expectations in mind, and then ponder if that is a “real” cartoon (as I did). (And, yes, B&B is a great(est) cartoon ;) . Hope you enjoy, and there is a lot more coming.
