When I started out as a young guitarist I was fortunate enough to be given advice and encouragement from two legendary musicians – Eric Roche and Martin Taylor MBE. The first time I ever met Eric I asked him how to build a career as a professional musician. He simply replied “Make it happen.” At the time these words weren’t what I was expecting to hear (I was hoping for a simple, proven formula of some sort) but he was right – it takes commitment, tenacity and persistence. Eric became a mentor and a friend and it was a privilege to work alongside him. When Eric lost his battle with cancer in 2005 the fingerstyle guitar world lost one of its brightest lights. This is my tribute to him. TUNING – CGDGAD
