Hey guys,

My name is Ben Howell-I used to be an instructor here many moons ago and am now back!

Its awesome to be back and I have matured as a player, my playing tends to be revolved around blues/jazz/fusion but I do like the odd tapping lick thrown in there!

I have been playing the guitar for 13ish years, and studied Music at Bath in the UK.

I have taught at the International Guitar Festival along side some amazing players (most of who write for Guitar Techniques) and have been a session player and general guitar/amp/tone lover!

I have a theoretical background, having studied jazz at degree level and love that side of it. But I am forever in the persuit of trying to be a better musician and to be able to play what I can hear in my head

Anyway-any questions, queries give me a bell. I have some old lessons on here, but I am hoping to be much more involved now smile.gif

Talk to you soon!!

B

Hey Ben, you have an awesome name. Only 3 letters but very powerful.

It's good to see another Englander on here. Are you from the Bath area or did you relocate there to study ?

It's always great to have a guitarist called "Ben" coming back to GMC! "The return of Ben" is always a killer sequel. biggrin.gif

I remember you mate! It's cool to see you here again! Are you planning to record some new lessons?

Bath's a great place. I'm about 35/40 miles south on the Somerset / Dorset border.

I'm not bad and back to my first love working as a mastering engineer. Andrew and a few others pop in from time to time. How's things for you? Are you still teaching and transcribing as well as composing and performing? Great to see you back here smile.gif.
