It only takes 2 clicks and could get me to the live rounds in Poland this November. Vote with a YouTube ‘like’ (click though to YouTube and then click ‘thumbs up’)! It would also be fantastic if you would share the video on social media and encourage others to vote too.
After Guitar Star last year (click here to view my appearance in Series 1, 2015 in which I got down to the top 4 in the acoustic category) I’ve decided it’s probably good to enter a competition every year. Guitar Masters 2016 is judged by an esteemed panel including Tommy Emmanual and Martin Taylor so wish me luck!
Am proud to say this is my first 10min video shot in a continuous take (as stipulated by the competition rules) and although I was disappointed that the main camera came out s little fuzzy I think the dual-camera effect has worked well. Looking forward to doing more in this way, but with a better main camera. Hope you enjoy the pieces and please do press “like” (on youtube), share it with your friends and encourage them to press like too as it could make all the difference for me.

My first Guitar Vlog Video:
A topic not much talked about but that’s made a big difference to my guitar playing…
This morning I was with a bunch of music friends from University and we were chatting about how to get more traffic on our weblogs. I showed them the stats for my cycleblog verses my music blog and in honesty we were all baffled. I’m the same person and the same writer, promoting both weblogs similarly, yet writing about cycling has generated at least 10 times the interest that writing about music has. Even though I have all but closed my cycleblog (fulltimefixie.wordpress.com), the existing posts still enjoy many more views than my regularly fed “Symphony For Happiness” music and lifestyle weblog.
Clearly, the answer is to bring it all together and do gigs on a Fixie bicycle. Oh it’s been done of course, travelling from one gig to the next on a bike, but what about gigs on the cycle path? I’m talking about meet-me-on-the-topsham-towpath-at-sunset-and-I’ll-play-you-some-songs sort of gigs. The river will be beautiful on a nice spring evening and we can all go to the Double Locks for a drink when it gets dark. Ninja gigs, Amanda Palmer style, staged on popular cycle routes? Any takers?
It could be the next big thing. After all, Burn The Curtain Theatre do a play on bicycles, even including a double-decker mountain bike ( http://burnthecurtain.co.uk/dq/ ). I tell you, it’s a rare treat to see them training on the Topsham towpath.
