What’s your biggest guitar issue?

ATTENTION GUITAR FRIENDS!

This is a call for submissions!

One aim of my blog is to offer guitar & music-related advice and for the next few posts, I’d like to pass the power in dictating the topic of discussion to YOU. So tell me: what is the is the biggest issue you face in learning the guitar?

I’m happy to examine any relevant queries which have been bugging you. They could be technical (finger tapping, getting the right tone out of an amp), or more vague (who do you feel the best guitarists to listen to when learning Afro-Cuban jazz, etc). You might want to ask about bass guitar, ukulele or band performance/management in general. Feel free!

You can message me here, leave a comment in this post, or drop me a DM/tweet via my Twitter account: @tim_guitarist.

I look forward to hearing from you & talking your queries over the next few weeks!

Jazz Musicians Needed ASAP

My Jazz outfit, JazzBaby, are looking for new members.

Our existing bass player has had to bow out following personal commitments, leaving room for a talented and experienced jazz player. Ideally, you will be a double bassist as well, with decent sight reading ability and good compositional/improvisational skills.

JazzBaby are a new exciting Jazz project in the North East of England. Already gigging as a guitar/vocals duo, we wish to add double bass to this setup for greater depth. We are also a four/five peice function act, mixing standards with more contemporary covers, with or without vocals. We are also getting an increasinly number of requests for our Lindy Hop/Swing Dance sets (20’s to 40’s), typically providing music for vintage dance nights or retro-themed weddings.
In addition to this, we hope to be writing anf recording our own material during the summer and taking this into the live arena at the end of this year. I have contacts in a popular chain of venues and am finalising slots in Jazz festivals in 2015.

If you’d like to be part of this, playing an active role in composition of new material, or if you would like to know more, get in touch with me via email: tim_guitar@hotmail.com
If you know someone who might be interested in this position, please refer my details on and ask them to get in touch with ‘JazzBaby’ in the subject line of their email.
