From London England, there is an Acoustic Fingerstyle Guitarist! A solo artist, with exceptional guitarist skills!
Inspired by music icons such as Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, Nirvana, and Radiohead.
I discovered this musician on Periscope this past Spring, and I was a fan of his music and positive vibe, instantly! I highly recommend following this artist on his Social Media accounts!
Please welcome Will Moore!
Here is Will’s interview with me, in Will’s own words:
I was born and raised in South London. I’ve lived in London all my life though I currently live right on the London/Essex border.
There are so many influences on my music – some solo guitarists like Andy McKee, Clive Carroll and Andrew York; but also musicians and bands who may not be such an explicit influence in the music I’m playing but definitely shaped my listening and writing as I was growing up. In my teens I listened to Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, Nirvana, Radiohead; but I’ve always listened to Classical music and I used to play a lot of Blues – I love B.B. King’s sound. There aren’t many genres of music that I dislike. I try to listen to as much as possible which really helps when people have requests during my live Periscope.
I write solo acoustic guitar stuff – mostly on my steel string, but I’ve been using my nylon string more and more. I love arranging other people’s songs for guitar, and people always respond really well to that but the stuff I want to promote and get people listening to is my own compositions.
My style is usually referred to as Acoustic Fingerstyle Guitar; which really just means I play guitar with my fingers (rather than a pick). It also implies a technique or dexterity often used in Folk music where the fingers and thumb on the picking hand are playing the strings independently so you can pick out melodies, chords and bass lines simultaneously. I occasionally delve into percussive guitar territory; where you use parts of your arm and hand to tap out drum like rhythms on the guitar while playing, but a lot of my stuff is fairly chilled and doesn’t rely too heavily on the percussive stuff.
I’ve been writing and recording this stuff for just over a year. I’ve played guitar since I was 8, but it’s only recently (after seeing Clive Carroll perform) that I chose to take it seriously and put stuff online. I’ve been learning more about the possibilities of recording and releasing my own stuff and have read about other guitarists who are making a living from streaming revenues, cd sales and online tuition/tutorial videos without leaving the house. As a father of 3 small children; I’m not looking at touring or regular gigging, but I’m inspired by the idea I could earn a living from writing and recording these tracks – that would be a future I’d be ok with!
