What and why I play...

I started playing guitar 19 years ago, when I was 8 years old. It was my Dad wo got me to play my first chords and I was listening to a lot of acoustic folk artists that he liked.... and then I discovered Metallica, Guns n Roses, Pantera... Metallica were a significant influence in my early guitar playing days.

Then I got into playing Classical music when I was about 14 and was learning studies by Mozart, Mauro Giuliani, Fernando Sor and John Williams. My Dad bought me a book about fingerstyle tunes and I took it from there, learning from Andy McKee, Preston Reed, Erik Mongrain and my biggest fingerstyle influence, Pierre Bensusan.

Studying music at uni gave me a proper introduction to jazz and a range of different styles. I now listen to a lot of artists who aren't necessarily writing for or with guitar, but who have a massive impact on the music I write.
