Welcome to my new blog.
After 30 years of playing professionally as a double bass player (based in London for most of that time), I thought it would be fun to relate a few of the amusing things that have happened to me along the way, and maybe to share a few insights into music that I’ve acquired in that time.
I was inspired by Jason Heath’s wonderful Contrabass Conversations. I was lucky enough to be invited onto his podcast recently to talk about my new book Reaching The Heights – Thumb Position for the Double Bass and the appearance gave a significant boost to the release. Jason’s blog is entertaining and informative at the same time and I will be pleased if my attempt has a fraction of the appeal!
