My entry for JTC guitar solo contest 2015!

Here is my entry for the Jam Track Central Guitar Solo competition 2015! There’s some stiff competition out there (this is an international competition), but I’ve always enjoyed creating/playing solos and so I’ve given it a crack. I went for the category of rock and made sure to put on my best display of face…

Outlaws Kept The View – first listen to debut EP!

For those unfamiliar with Outlaws Kept The View, we are an acoustic duo featuring myself on guitar and lead vocals and Jake Munn on bass and backing vocals. We initially teamed up to perform each others solo material, but in a short space of time we discovered that we had a very natural songwriting ‘chemistry’ with each…

Finding your own sound

‘I don’t care about the rules. In fact, if I don’t break the rules at least 10 times in every song then I’m not doing my job properly.’ – Jeff Beck. Whilst I can’t claim to ‘break the rules’ nearly as often as Jeff does, or even claim that I try to, I still enjoy…

Tom Hunt guitarist video reel

Turning ‘up to 11′ for new video

I decided my recent ‘guitarist video reel’ needed to showcase a bit more of the louder stuff – so I have made up and added a metal-style solo to the start of it. I’ve always loved playing in a variety of genres on the guitar and am happy to teach all sorts of things! If…




‘Notes like raindrops’

The title of this article, ‘Notes like raindrops’, refers to a review written about one of my favourite jazz guitarists – Randy Napoleon. The words are as lyrical as the musician himself: “…each note hangs, suspended with raindrop-like clarity from its bough of melody.” (Lawrence Consentino, Lansing Michigan’s City Pulse). What a beautiful way to…

To begin with I’ve added a few ‘In the style of…’ licks to help you play like some of the Blues/Rock greats such as Jimi Hendrix, BB King and Stevie Ray Vaughan. Once I’ve added a…



Guitarists – Look after your tendons!

The title of this article would have been good advice for me several years ago! Unfortunately back then I was playing lots of guitar without well-aligned posture and with some subtle errors in my technique. This soon took its toll in the form of a repetitive strain injury, the pain centred in my right shoulder…

Lyric writing and pimpin’ my studio

I’m currently enjoying one of those rare but cathartic moments when I feel I have things to write about. Usually a new song or two comes along at some turning point in my life or when some intense experience naturally brings a lyric into my head. Having just had a pretty intense week, I’ve opened…
