    I haven't been around much on here as I had to sell my 8 string! :(

    But thought you may like these...my bass teacher from college playing classical guitar.

    Fred T Baker - New Composition on classical guitar

    Fred T Baker - Something in 6/8 on classical guitar

    If you are a member of youtube please leave some nice comments as he is a great player and genuinely nice guy (and it's taken me a year and a half of asking him to finally get a couple of vids up! - although I was hoping they would be his solo bass or jazz guitar stuff)!

    I'm not sure...
    I was thinking the same thing he does a lot of those artificial harmonic arpeggios like Lenny did. Very good player, thanks for the videos.

    Birmingham Conservatoire by any chance?

    I remember that guy very well :D, I remember him doing a bass concerto, bass as the lead instrument in an ensemble, and that was great to hear.

    He also did some bass on our induction there (I did Music Tech), and you could tell some people had switched off because they thought bass was crap. By the end everyone was watching him in awe (Music Tech guys, people on the Jazz course, and the Classical course alike)

    You would be correct.

    That also sounds very familiar, whenever he plays (which isn't often enough), people can't believe it sometimes.
