Manny has been a very welcome Shedder for a couple of months now. He recently moved down to Pambula from Jindabyne and was looking for some like minded souls to play music with. It was while he was playing at the Candelo Blues Club that somebody, maybe Brother John Drews, suggested he get in touch with PBGB.
Well he did, and we invited him along to check out the Shed scene. Much to our delight he seems comfortable in The Shed, and has settled in as a regular. Fab! Suits us just fine!
Manny is a great guy who plays tasty acoustic and electric guitar, sings, can handle the bass, and writes the odd song. He's a professional music teacher to boot, so he knows his stuff, and that comes in handy in The Shed as well.........we do, after all, have plenty more to learn.
Manny has already made his PBGB Blog debut ................ check out his groovy guitar lines on Mick's 'A Dream' and Jock and Yarni's 'Mama Told Me So'.
We were, however, keen to feature Manny shining in his own light. We knew he had a few originals up his sleeve, one of which, 'Madly Deeply' is an instrumental that Manny uses as a warm up on his solo gigs.
So a couple of days back we took time out to record it .......... listen to Manny soloing on 'Madly Deeply' by clicking HERE.
Hope you like it !
Manny casually knocked it out in one take with the aid of his trusty looper pedal.
Thanks for hanging out in The Shed with us Manny. We're looking forward to featuring more of your work on the PBGB Website.
