"you can never have too many guitars"
I've played guitars since I was a young teenager. I had a sporadic career as a classical guitarist, guitar teacher, session musician as well as band member playing all sorts of music. I never stopped playing but I backed off from recording and performing projects for a long time because of 'reasons'.
Anyway, listening to Jack Rose, John Fahey, Joseph Allred, C Joynes, Gwenifer Raymond, Glenn Jones and Tom Carter put me back on track. I've been working hard since 2023 began and have a solo acoustic album, Honeyfield Road, over on Bandcamp.
I've also put up two electric guitar albums over on Arcadian Meadows. Persephone is more or less an ambient album made during lockdown or thereabouts. More Time than Stone is more representative of the where I'm at, elements of both composition and improvisation honouring the sound of the electric guitar and the electronics. It's a start. The album was recorded at home using two amps in pseudo-stereo. The sounds of the electric guitar and the effects are interesting to me as are the idiosyncratic allusions to the history of the instrument which comes across every time anyone picks up a guitar.
I'll get round to showing off my guitars, boasting about my pedals and amps and generally spouting a load of ill-informed opinions about everything to do with guitars.
