Default Guitar Tutor available

I'm posting this on behalf of one of my best friends, and although I'm biased 'cos he's the guitarist in my covers band, I still regard him as one of the most fluid and intuitive soloists I know. Guitar Tutor available in the Medway area in Kent.
  • Specializing in Rock, Pop and Blues genres.
  • Beginners to intermediate welcome
  • Also available for session work
For more information, call Phil "PG" Gilbert on 01634 317119 or 07716 990254 Thought perhaps I should also post an example of his playing, so here's a cover of a Prince track recorded by my covers band, Marylebone Jelly in my studio.
and this one also a cover by our band, Bill Withers' "Ain't No Sunshine".

Don't know why SoundCloud makes it look like such a digital sausage... the track is actually, according to the SoundForge stats, -12dBFS average RMS.

Plus there's the orchestra spagging out with the axe-man

Nice playing and tone there.
I'd quite like to learn stuff even though I've been playing for *cough* amount of years. I never did get any better.

Do you sing any later Lennon stuff? Your singer would nail that!

No, can't say we've done any later Lennon material... we do a few early Beatles numbers, "I Saw Her Standing There" and the like, but our vocalist is very much more of a rock singer along the lines of Bon Jovi, Springsteen, Bryan Adams (and aspires to Eric Martin status )

Well tell him he could be John Bon Lennon and to add one to your repertoire.

Trust me.

At my mate's request, I've also included a second track in a different style so you can hear different examples of his playing style. It's been added to the first post.

They sound great! Now, that's the quality of recording i would like to be able to produce but i'm definitely not quite there yet

The singer really does sound very similar to Jon Bon Jovi. I often try to emulate the voice of my hero, Freddie Mercury, but it's just not happening My singing is really what let's me down, very self conscious and no confidence when it comes to singing whatsoever.

I was a bit like that with singing too, but once I started singing BVs with the band, things started to improve. When you do BVs, there's nowhere near as much pressure or attention which allows you to improve by repetition. For sure, singing lessons help, but I find the thing that helps the most is singing often be that with a band, around the house or in the shower.

I haven't done it for ages, but at one time I used to get out the front of the band with a guitar and sing a few numbers. I'd never have had the confidence without having spent time singing BVs.

It's funny you should say that, i am far more comfortable singing BV's. I've always felt that's more my role. As i'm not in a band situation right now, i have to sing lead vocals aswell as backing vocals on Recordings i'm not comfortable with it atall. I feel as if i'm always holding back, especially if i'm not alone and it shows in the recordings. I really wish i had someone else to sing the lead vocals on my tracks. One of my mates is a really good singer, and we've tried him singing a couple of my songs but i always end up picking holes in it, it should sound a bit more like this, go a little higher there, sing that part a little softer...i end up doing it myself anyway. I've thought about looking for a voice coach to see if i'd benefit from that but there are none around here as far as i know, took me long enough to find a Piano tutor to teach me to read music. I think i'd rather leave the lead vocals to someone else anyway, i play piano quite regularly in front of a few hundred people no problem, if i had to sing too? Forget it, i wouldn't do that infront of 3 people.
