TOUR BLOG - UK Tour - 2 Days Off!
 
We have two days off from the tour, so Mrs T and myself have checked into a very nice hotel on the south coast of England. Although I say these are days off, we still have quite a lot of things to do.





 

Mrs T is advancing the shows, calling the venues to make sure everything will be set up for us when we arrive at the next venues, and also making sure our next hotels are confirmed.

I've been catching up on emails and getting phone calls from my publicist about some radio shows and interviews she has lined up for me over the next few days.

I've also been listening to an audio mix that Adam sent me via Dropbox of the recording I did in my studio with the bassist Peter Ind for my approval, and he also sent me edited versions of a Studio Session & Insight videos that I filmed before I left. They're looking and sounding good, so you'll get to see those here on Patreon next month.

I've also been filming a few video responses in my hotel room for my online students on ArtistWorks. Fortunately, I have a wonderful view across the gardens and looking out to sea which is very inspiring and uplifting.

The first two shows were really great, the audiences were wonderful and I felt on top form.

I've got some new ideas for my solo set on this tour, so I think I will run through those on my guitar this afternoon.... but first.... a pub lunch in a 17th century inn!

This is a lot of money to spend on a music artist, and you are really showing how much you support music and art. THANK YOU. I'll try to make it worth it: you'll receive all of the above, random gifts + photos and all, plus access to my patron-only video webcasts in which I'll chat/perform live with you top-tier patrons and guests, take questions direct, give online masterclasses, talk about life, guitars and music. Note: the patrons have voted to make these recordings available to the public, because the more the merrier. But it's the patrons like you who get to interact live, and you'll usually access get the archive before the general public does....you'll be a members of the smaller group with whom will also get to interact directly with my guests, and so forth. I love doing these live webcasts, but they only work if we keep the numbers small. I'll do the monthly webcast even if i haven't made any new music, so you may be getting free webcasts when I'm figuring out what to write or record next, on the road touring, and we'll just talk online about music, guitars and the bizarre things that happen when you are a touring musician. It'll be FUN!
