Firstly I’d like to thank you for your amazing support, it’s amazing how something you do because you’re passionate about it can reach out to so many people around the world.
There are nearly 58,000 hits on my channel and collectively my music has been heard over 1,000,000 times as backing tracks of other YouTube members videos, that’s something I can’t even fathom.
The reason for this post is to tell you why I’ve been reasonably quiet recently and it’s because I’m working on new material. I’ve got a deal on the way with a record company here in the UK who liked my music and I’m hoping to have an album worth ready before Summer.
The album will be 11 tracks long, the first 5 tracks will be Spanish acoustic and there about, the last 5 will be Industrial and the track in the middle will be an interlude that merges them together.
Think of it as a ‘day and night’ album.
60% of the album will be new tracks, but you may hear some returns of a polished (EQ and quality) previous track, or a remake of some of my older Material.
I’ll keep you posted on the progress and when them time is right post some ‘teasers’ on YouTube for you to hear.
Pretty hard to tab this but here goes.
Note: 010 is hammer on 1, and hammer off to 0, there are no notes above 5th fret.
‘3»>5’ is slide from 3 to 5.
(Repeat x3) (Play once)

I hope the chord patterns become obvious as they are all modified chords with hammer on’s. All the best,
The way music entertainment is going now saddens me. WMG and Sony BMG have been notorious in the past few years of removing all audio content from places like Youtube when the music isn’t owned by the poster.
Not only does it go against logic in product advertisement terms but it goes against what music stands for, which is expression.
Someone may have posted a video on Youtube of their summer holidays for example. Maybe they put in a little background music to set the mood - once one of these organizations has found music that has been used without permission (like you’d be able to get that) they will remove all audio from the video, essentially rendering the video useless.
The days of expression are gone it would seem, and all to feed the greedy big record labels out there.
What I don’t understand is why on earth you would go around ruining what I see as a perfect viral advertising scheme that works itself!
Essentially, people like the song, they use the song on their video - that video generates hits, people ask in the comments who the song is by, or it’s stated in the description OR people will use the ever popular Shazam to find out who the music is by and will purchase the music for themselves and then possibly even put the music on their own video after doing so.
I think these record labels should realize that they are ruining a good thing, they are doing themselves and their artists out of increased awareness and also generating a bad karma over the whole music business.
It leaves you with a feeling like you’re going to be charged for letting people accidentally overhear the music being played in your car or something.
Personally I think it’s great if people want to use my music and I encourage it. Music should be about expression and removing it from the audiences on these principals undermines the whole point of having music in the first place.
The focus should be on labeling who the music is by, not on the permission to use it.
I’ve always used Tumblr for blogs when working on web design but strangely I hadn’t got around to switching mine to Tumblr. So here I am - Fresh blog ready for regular updated.
Thanks for tuning in.
