Welcome to


I am an acoustic guitarist, writer, journalist and teacher having authored several books on the guitar including the best-selling 10 Minute Guitar Workout and Crash Course Acoustic.

I have been involved in writing for and editing guitar magazines now for nearly 25 years. In the 1990s I was editor of Guitarist and Guitar Techniques magazines, leaving full-time mag work to go freelance in 2001. After that I continued to write for Guitar Techniques in the guise of their agony aunt, The Theory Godmother. I also wrote for Blaze Publishing’s Acoustic magazine for nine years. In June 2015 I rejoined the editorial team on Guitarist magazine where I also edit the quarterly title Guitarist Presents Acoustic.

I have released two CDs of acoustic guitar instrumentals, the first was called Nocturnal and the second, Arboretum.

Lately I have been working with Leafcutter Studios to produce tuition apps for phones and iPad – more details from the link in the menu above.
