New duets available
Last year, US fingerpicker Richard Gilewitz joined me for concerts, and while he was here, we spent an enjoyable day recording some duets...we play quite different styles, but I think we blended really well. These tracks are available now as single song downloads: check them out here
New CD on the way...
Ive been hard at work recording a new CD, to be released in September, ahead of the next Europe tour.
Working title is Lines & Spaces, and will be a similar format to the last album Time Lines; some arrangements of covers, original tunes, and a couple of vocals. I'll have more news for you next month!
Which reminds me: the 2014 Europe tour dates are up on my website
Don't forget new TABs are now available for purchase (as downloads) in both PDF & Guitar Pro files, only Au$2.50 each. To buy, head over to my online downloads store.
Hope to see you soon!
take care, till next time...Michael
