Here is my transcription of Martin Taylor’s arrangement of the jazz classic ‘Autumn Leaves’. I’ve enrolled for a year with Martin’s Guitar Academy on the Artistworks website, and it’s given me great inspiration. I haven’t played this much guitar in years.
HERE is the sheet music.

Here is my arrangement of Skylark, by Hoagy Carmichael. Adrian Ingram first introduced me to this song, and it’s fascinated me ever since.
The song is originally in Eb, but I’ve moved it down to D for guitar. The chord progression is always finding new ways to surprise us, and the middle section is especially inventive, moving from the key of D to G, Em then F#(!) before coming back home to D. Sublime! I will never stop loving this song!

This video is a reference for my lesson ‘Hollow Log’ – an introduction to Travis Picking.
The song ‘Hollow Log’ is by Beck, from his album ‘One Foot in the Grave’. I have tidied it up and it is a great intro to this style of picking.

Fingerpicking in time.
A sweet little fingerstyle piece played by Lucca.
Country blues guitar piece.
Here is the latest guitar ukulele duet from me and Philip.
A jaunty little rag, in which the guitar and ukulele bounce along with equal exuberance.
I recently wrote this little waltz for my friend Philip Hay and myself to play.
We have an ongoing project to write and video a series of duets in which the guitar and ukulele both have equally interesting parts.
