A couple of days ago when one of my acoustic strings broke, I felt it a perfect opportunity to record a video lesson on how to change strings on a Steel String Acoustic Guitar. I was going make a post with extra written information to accompany the video, however it ended up being so long and in-depth that I don’t think one is necessary anymore.
Here’s the video lesson. Enjoy:
Also, let me provide y’all with a quick update on the album recording process. Over the past couple of months, I’ve been lucky enough to have the following players come in and add to my album:
– Jason Walker with some Pedal Steel
– Zane Banks for Banjo
– Alison Avron (Click for her website. She also runs the wonderful underground Sydney venue; The Newsagency), come in to sing a on a duet a few BV’s
– Matt James for a bit of Electric Bass
All sessions have come out really great. I did some further mixing with POG just last night, and some of the tracks are sounding ridiculously good. I’m really happy with how this project is moving along.
Pic’s from these occasions can be found in my Galleries Page or below in a slideshow!
As you can see to the right of this page, I have also posted up several new gigs that I’ve booked in. Highlights from these include the UNSW Roundhouse with full band next Thursday from 4pm, and a couple of foot-stomping sets at the Wild Rover on the 6th of April (next Sunday). Be sure to keep an eye out as I lock more dates in.

Just a quick post with this one. I started editing and uploading some live videos that were recorded at the Marrickville Newsagency earlier this month but gave up due to poor sound quality from a swivelling fan in the room. Even still, the first three songs are there and I’ve compiled them as a playlist for anyone keen on having a watch/listen.
Here’s the link:
I’ve also decided to start adding all of my cover gigs to the gig page. While giving me a chance to populate that section with tonnes of information, it’ll also give anyone who is keen on seeing me in cover mode a chance to check it out.
That’s all from me for now.
What a massive break between posts! 2012 was a massive year and 2013 is going to be even bigger.
Over the past few months, I’ve been busy recording an album with help from the wonderfully talented and polite Pat O’Grady on Engineering/Production. Here is Pat’s website: https://www.pogmusic.com/
We have a solid 11 tracks making the cut so far with half already having drums and bass recorded. The remaining rhythm foundations will be recorded next Tuesday. Expect this album around the middle of the year… maybe earlier? Depends how productive I am.
Also! I’ve been booking in some new gigs. So far, I have one at the Union Locked in, some more Rozelle Markets, some Sappho Bookstore gigs on the way, some at the Marrickville Newsagency, and perhaps a tour! Keep an eye on that Gigpress bar to the right.. I’ll also make facebook events for the important ones.
Make sure you check out the videos page, I’m recording and putting up a whole lot more content. (2 videos today already!)
Here’s a link to my Videos Page.
Finally, I’m keeping a soundcloud page updated with tracks that don’t make the cut for official recordings. Here are two that I’m particularly proud of:
Sunny Road (Emiliani Torrini Cover)
This Decision Could Be Very Costly (Original)
Oh, also thought I might mention that I recently bought a 13″ Retina Macbook Pro. This thing is killer.
