I've uploaded on YouTube and on this site a new video of an old composition, In The Breeze. This is a piece I have come back to often since it was first written about five years ago. I enjoy its constantly evolving gentle melody and its feel of drift and spiralling. Every time I revive it I play it a little differently and find new ways to move around the sometimes tricky positional shifts.
I've also made a few improvements to my sound and video set-up, using a Fujifilm camera and a Zoom F6 recorder with a pair of Warm Audio WA14 mics.
I'm also playing a superb new guitar which I first saw on a visit to master luthier Stephen Frith in Crawley, Surrey. He's a great maker, and this guitar is incredible. It has a flamed maple back and sides and a top of old seasoned European spruce with beautiful bear-claw markings. It has an extraordinary rich, sweet and powerful sound, endless sustain, bell-like top notes and an evenness of volume and projection across its whole range.
