Did you know that buying one album on Bandcamp brings in the same income as about 1000 days of streaming 🥺 Good that it’s #bandcampfriday 🥰

@bandcamp are waiving their fees today which is pretty cool if you were waiting to pick up my discography of acoustical recordings ☺️ Head to the link in my bio/story/comments for info on savings and the highest quality uncompressed audio that’s available ✊ Have a great weekend!

Did you know that 🐝 🍆 is an official unit of measurement in the acoustical guitar community?

We all miss gigs right? I’ll be stopping by the awesome @joebonamassa live stream-a-thon in about 45 mins w/ @keepingthebluesalive ❤️ We are all raising money for musicians affected by #covid and the stream is looking EPIC 😍 @ericgalesband just crushed it and the artist list looks WILD. 35 artists all playing on Joe’s FB page. Pretty cool way to spend an afternoon/evening if you ask me 🍻 Check it out in my story and see you there! 💪 #keepingthebluesalive #joebonamassa #king #guitar #blues #acousticguitar ...

Projecting big love today to those who have been listening on @spotify this year. Sometimes with an inherently ‘visual’ style of instrumental guitar playing I worry that many of you may see the videos but stop short of hearing the album recordings that @getrealaudio and I work hard on. Humbled to see this stat, although you know that @bandcamp is the spot for the highest quality digital masters 😉🍻 About time for some more music don’t ya think? Don’t forget to hit ‘follow’ to catch the next drop 💫 #guitar #guitarist #music #spotify #acousticguitar #peacefulguitar #instrumentalpopcovers ...

SOUND ADVICE Episode 1. Hey kiddos, I’ve teamed up again with the wonderful folks at @daddarioandco to kick off their new lesson series #soundadvice 🎵📝 I spent a good 10 minutes going deep into arrangement tips over on their YT channel (link in their bio/my story for full video!) Future Sound Advice vids will feature the likes of @kakigram @manuel.gardner.fernandes @rabeaafro @rodrigoygabriela & more. Definitely worth following the page 🍻 Always a pleasure to talk guitar in the digital realm of my favourite string people. Enjoy 💫 #guitar #guitarlesson #daddario #daddarioxs #acousticguitar #guitarcover #guitarcovers #electricguitar ...

Anyone else familiar with @cameo ? I’ve been on there for a while but literally never posted about it (silly boy) 😬 It’s a really cool platform where I can send you a personalised video message. I’ve done a few recently for birthdays, anniversaries etc and it’s a lot of fun. Check out cameo.com for more info. You can even find @davidhasselhoff and @snoopdogg on there! #cameo #guitar #mikedawes #guitarist #video #acoustic #acousticguitar #myglassesarestilltapedup ...

@musiciswin asked me to ask the mighty knowledge fountain @prsguitars (Paul Reed Smith himself) one question. I hope I didn’t blow it. What would you have asked him? #guitar #prs #paulreedsmith #acoustic #acousticguitar ...

When writing solo fingerstyle music it can be tempting to dive in too deep with the COUGH flashy stuff 💫 Composing with a looper is a really handy way of maintaining a sense of melody in a riff ❤️ Might turn this into a song 😅 Thoughts?

Full vid in my story/channel. Thanks for the inspiration @boss_europe
