A song from my latest music project...'VistaRama Deluxe'. Music inspired by some of the musical avenues explored by Bill Nelson / Be Bop Deluxe in the 1970s. This song has an obvious 'reggae' vibe.
Another Spencer Davis Group 'hit' from the mid 1960s. The time just prior to vocalist / instrumentalist Stevie Windwood leaving to form Traffic...who had Pop/Rock 'hits' of their own during the so called, Psychedelic years..

An instrumental version of a song that I remember well from my teenage years. The Spencer Davis Group had quite a few hit records in the mid 1960s
This 'Overture' is the first recorded part of a work in progress'...an album with a working title of VistaRama Deluxe. The inspiration for this introductory piece, comes from years listening to the wonderful UK 'Art-Rock' band, Be Bop Deluxe.

This is my own interpretation/cover of a great song by Swedish 'Prog Master', Roine Stolt. I've had to slightly change the middle (instrumental) section due to the original's amazing complexity. Afterall, I'm not Roine Stolt!...
My own version of a fabulous song about tolerance, by my favourite Swedish Prog/Rock band...The Flower Kings

A suitably scary piece for the Clicker's Club Halloween player. This is... 'one that I prepared earlier'. In fact it was recorded way back in 2010!...many thanks to the master of fright...Vincent price for the ghoulish voice. wow those screams ha h

This is a musical ghost story. Part one sets the ghostly scene while part two features a poem by Christina Rossetti. She was the sister of the famous Pre-Raphaelite painter, Dante Gabriel Rossetti. Alternative/Goth ? well, you decide...

This tune is a really a platform to showcase the sounds that I've managed to squeeze out of my very newest guitar...an Eastwood Astroluxe Cadet- Bill Nelson signature model. It's fitted with a Deusenburg Les Trem unit.

A lively and loud guitar instrumental by 'Guitarboy', who I've managed to get back into the studio to record some new tunes. Lots and lots of guitar interest here, and of course the inevitable inclusion of a few Bill Nelsonisms..

A rock guitar instrumental. A 'homage' to probably my all time favourite band . . .Be Bop Deluxe. I've really gone back to my Rock Roots with this one. What fun I had :)

A lively 'Adrenalin Rush' of a tune. Shades of Joe S in this one. I played all the lead parts with a Fender Squire Telecaster... Through a clean amp setting on the Line 6 Pod and given a bit of punch by going through a Boss ST-2 Power Stack pedal.
Peak in sub-genre #19
A Rock instrumental by the (until now) semi-retired, reclusive and shy 'Guitarboy'. His last brief dip into the limelight was back in January 2014, for the 'Super-Hero Challenge', for Clicker's Club predecessor ...The Coconut Blues Club.
