The blog has been alarmingly quiet over the last 6 months. Sorry. Must try harder in future.

Here’s something to tide you over until the next post. I made a resolution in 2013 to start writing my own music as the bulk of my work as a bassist involves interpreting other peoples’ songs and I wanted to start a creative project without any commercial concerns whatsoever. This is the result.

The ending contains a little bass feature which is a nod to one of the ‘Johns’ who influenced the tune, John Francis Pastorius (aka ‘Jaco’). I remember spending a long time as a teenager trying to get ‘Portrait Of Tracy’ together, and once I’d written this tune I was curious to see if I could emulate Jaco’s approach, playing the melody using harmonics while still outlining the harmony.

New articles, transcriptions and videos on the way soon. I promise.

I’m pleased to announce that I’m spending July on the road playing double bass with Jamie Abbott in support of his new ‘Light Love’ E.P. which is out now on Extenso Music.

The tour is running in conjunction with both Caffe Nero and Yamaha Music Schools and somehow we’re cramming in 30+ shows over the next four weeks!

A full list of gig dates can be found here

Normal blogging/transcription services will be resumed in August. I’m working on some bits of video including a rundown of my pedalboard setup which I’ll post asap.
