My name is Tony, and I live in the UK, in the rural county of Leicestershire. I have been playing the guitar since the age of 14yrs, I am now 71yrs, as of March 2017. Having played in bands since the early sixties, up to 2003, I now just play for leisure and for what it's worth, decided to construct this little website and add a few of my fledgling efforts at home recording, if only to give the reader who may have been thinking of attempting something similar, the encouragement that, if I can do it, they can too!
The late fifties and early sixties were a magical time for me, I loved the sound of most of the guitar-led instrumental records that were around at the time, and my favourites were the records released by The Shadows, who started life as Cliff Richard's backing band.
While being somewhat uncomfortable with the egotistical nature of publishing my versions of some of my favourite music, I just felt the need to do it and I hope that you find at least some of my efforts enjoyable.
I suppose it all stems from the frustration of an old codger, no longer having the inclination to withstand the rigours of all those late nights and early mornings racing up and down England's motorways from gig to gig, rigours that necessarily accompany the pleasure and adrenaline rush of playing in a band!
