John has been playing the guitar since the age of 11. He began his guitar journey on a Woolworth Top 20 guitar, plugged into the mic socket of his Amstrad “music centre” (as stereos were called back then).
John's influences are varied & include “all the usual suspects” as he puts it, plus a few you may not expect... Eric Clapton; Gary Moore; Jeff Beck; Kenny Burrell; Miles Davis; Joe Satriani; Edward Elgar & Chuck Berry to name but a few.
These days, in addition to writing & recording music, John puts food on the table by teaching a select group of students from his home studio in Redcar. For more details on John's tuition work, please visit the Lessons page or send a message below.
