The 2nd will be held in Melbourne on the 8th August (4 seats remaining venue to be confirmed)

I’ll also be at the Melbourne Guitar Show on the 6th,7th August on the Cilia Guitar stand doing some playing and chatting.Come on by and say hello and try out some of the guitars.

Hope to see you there



Stay tuned for an upcoming Master Class near you.

“These classes are purely based on my approach, concepts, techniques and conclusions which have worked for me over the years and still do to this day. I’ve always loved this approach and style of playing.

Funk Fusion is such a great way to learn the fusion / jazzy approach without having to get too involved with theory. I wish that someone could’ve explained it to me in this form when I started getting into the style, it would’ve saved me a lot of time. Everyone who attends a class can expect lots of jamming and tons of examples on the night. Each person will also get to take home the handout booklet and CD which contains a variety of backing tracks as well as all of the audio examples covered on the night.

I hope to see you there,

* Creating your own voice using major / minor modes
* Using arpeggios
* Motifs
* Melodic minor approach
* Whole tone and outside approach
* Augmented ideas
* Chromatic lines
* Wide pentatonic ideas
* Legato lines

These topics will be covered in the most simplistic way, but with a very effective outcome. This is aimed at intermediate to advanced players who would like to increase the vocabulary of sounds within their playing style.

* Each class runs for 2 hours
* Players need to bring their own guitar, amps will be supplied by the venue
* Cost is $80 per person
