Spring-ing back

After a year away from gigging with just an acoustic guitar, technology appears to have enabled me to return with a new set-up for Spring…

I’ve been working on how to present some of the songs I was performing in a more ‘electronic’ format but wasn’t sure how to get past a few bars of loops without hiding behind a laptop. I’ve actually tried this before, though it was in a duo called ‘The New School of British Blues’ over 10 years ago using some very old equipment.

Alesis MMT-8

What I used in the old days… complete with very 80’s grey plastic casing.

I’m using guitar samples as much as possible, so it won’t be a complete departure from what I was doing previously. Please watch this space as I’ll be posting some examples with the intention of playing live again soon.
