After the success of Easy Blues Fusion (a LickLibrary annual best seller!) it's a real treat to be able to bring out another DVD in the same vein, so here we have it! Easy Funk Fusion
For fans of my first video, you can expect the same level of detail, but this time applied to the melodic minor scale and the use of it as a colour on a minor 7 chord. This is presented in the easiest way possible so no matter what level you're at, you can get going right away.
To go one further than my last DVD I took the time to make a proper backing track this time with some non diatonic chord changes for you to apply these licks to, along with a series of exercises on fretboard visualization and modulation skills.
I'm so happy to be sharing this with you as we spent a lot of time working on this material. We've got a ton more in the pipeline but everyone is busy with their own projects that this felt like it was going a bit stale, so I decided to put it up for you all to enjoy.
Vocals and Bass - David D'Andrade Guitars - Levi Clay Guitars - Doug Cartwright Drums - Leigh Costanza
Produced, mixed & mastered by David D'Andrade
(04/10/2013) - Easy Blues Fusion DVD Out Now!
It brings me great pleasure to announce that my first instructional DVD is available now from LickLibrary
I'm blown away with the level of support we've had on this one, so expect volume 2 soon enough!
On the DVD we look at a blues in Bb and focus on outlining dominant 7 chords more tightly, so arpeggios, mixolydian scales and chord tone targeting across chords in 3 different keys.
Also, if you order the DVD I'm sending out a bonus lesson on chords which you can download instantly from your inbox

(17/03/2013) - New Look and Updates
It really is criminal how long it's been since I've given you all an update - so here it finally is!
As you can see, things look a little different now, there's a fantastic logo designed by my friend Lamer too which I have on a few shirts (and a mousemat!)
Work has been crazy, from LickLibrary to Premier Guitar, London to Romford, sunny Italy to the equally sunny California things are real good. The gear has switched up a bit, Dr Z, Gibson and Vigier are all in regular use now, along with some unbelievable support from D'Addario, TC Electronic and Seymour Duncan.
Check out some of the new pages linked below and expect more coming, I promise!

It's with great pride that I can announce I'm now part of the Wampler family. Brian Wampler is one of the greatest pedal makers of all time and a real innovator. It really does highlight what a real endorsement is all about - I advertise this product because I genuinely think they rock! Check out this video which Wampler are now using as promotional material for the Brad Paisley signature "Paisley Drive"

I'm finally shooting HD videos that look good! Here's a tribute to the great Scott Henderson. As most of you know, he's one of my all time favourites. This track is from Scott's second solo record "Tore Down House" and features what I consider to be the greatest recorded solo ever! Go check it out.
(12/12/2011) - Bop 'n' Roll part 3
Swing by Live 4 Guitar to see my latest article on diminished scale usage.
The final's have finally come around and although I didn't make that final 10, It was great to go and hang out with my good friends Nico Schlimann, Martin Miller, Jack Gardiner, Frank Pearl, Ignazio Di Salvo and many others.
It was a great opportunity to see old friends and new - cheers guys.
There was a chance for me to get up on stage and play and here's a pic of me rocking out on the mighty Tom Quayle's Suhr standard.
Part two of Bop 'n' Roll is now live at Live4Guitar. This time we're doing a little analysis of the Bebop Dominant scale with in a cool Robben Ford style blues setting. Check it out now and leave some feedback at the bottom
It's a real honour to play such an active role in such a great site. The idea is really simple; everyone is equal and everyone should have the same platform to show the world who they are as a player. Take a look around the site and you'll find places where you can sell your own lessons, backing tracks, music and a great forum with some awesome players present.
