Peter Frampton is a Grammy®-winning guitarist and songwriter best known for his 1976 multi-platinum selling live album Frampton Comes Alive! which spawned the hit singlesShow Me The WayBaby, I Love Your Way, and Do You Feel Like We Do.  Frampton will perform these songs at the upcoming Roundhouse show, plus songs from his extensive catalogue, including Humble Pie. 

"It’s like a breath of fresh air after listening to one particular version,” says Frampton about the reissue of Humble Pie’s Rockin’ The Fillmore live album. “The beauty of it is that you get three completely different performances of most of the songs.  It’s great to hear Steve Marriott’s banter from all of the shows.  We’ve lived with 'It's really been a gas!' for 40-odd years, and now there’s more."

Neil Mellor: Picking lesson video

I was sent a message by a Facebook friend asking if I could give him some advice on Picking. I said to him if I get time I would record a short video as I would prefer to demonstrate it rather than just write it down. I had a few minutes before I taught my last lesson today and recorded a short video.
Anyway though that I might post it on here too as it might be of interest to other guitarists.
You can tell I'm a bit tired though........ hehehe ;0)
