Hi! I have been playing since the age of 15 and specialise in acoustic steel string guitars, originally I started out simply playing in my room writing songs for my own entertainment but was encouraged to perform once I started at university and since then have never looked back! I love to play fast paced rhythmic blues music but also delve into a bit of folk and often write finger picked songs as well. Currently I am looking to increase my knowledge of scales and theory to improve my improvisation and soloing ability, any advice welcome! Please check out some of my band's music on or search 'antique toy music' in youtube to find us.

Best wishes and better playing!
