I studied with Shaun for many years. Massively helped my understanding (theory) and technique. He's a close friend of mine, and a really good guy (no side to him at all).

I met him way back at the Guitar Institute when I signed up for the Intermediate/Advanced course. A very humbling experience!! He was teaching a jazz/fusion class, got me playing the usual pentatonic stuff, changed all the chords under me, and hey presto ... instant jazz sounds I didn't know I could play. That hooked me... I went for private lessons from that day on.

He's running a chain of music schools in UK, creating all the content, offering up to bachelors degree.

cheers, Jerry

I'm not sure this will be allowed to stay, to be honest, but it's a great lesson and I'd suggest seeing if you can submit it to the lessons section on the front page

There's one part of the video where Shaun describes classical vibrato, but in a way I've never heard of before ... that is ... using enough force on a string, applied parallel to the string, to make its tension change to either more tension (by pulling the string mass towards the nut) or less tension (by pushing the string mass towards the bridge). The key point is the effect is parallel along the string, not raising and releasing the pitch by bending the string.

I tried this, and couldn't do it ... so I texted Shaun ... who suggested I was a weakling!! ... and eventually revealed that the technique involves locking your fingers on the string, and then using the weight of your arm (not wrist) to put enough force through your locked fingers, to achieve the tension changes.

And yes, I could then do it ... feels weird, and sounds strange (especially the lowering in pitch as the string tension decreases) ...but it's pretty cool, though subtle

I don't think I can submit someone else's video. But I'll enquire.

Something like this is fine, there's a context to the video and it also addresses a very specific purpose - it's not just "durrhurr i found a cool video"

Carry on.


Also it's not Tom Hess...
Actually called Mark!
