Richard is an inspirational teacher and one of my biggest influences.
He's a world class guitarist and his enthusiasm for theory, odd timings, inversions, guitar orchestration, indian Ragas,the Mahavishnu Orchestra and the Beatles keep me playing to this day. I have many happy memories of our lessons and the way he pushed me to be a better player, as have many of my friends, his influence could be seen on many of the excellent players in the local scene. His books on lead and chords also come highly recommended.
I spent 10 years learning from Richard and always felt there was so much more to learm - I hope to study again with him in the future when I am visiting Northamptonshire.
Here is song from the improvizone gig I did last week. All improvised - sounds a bit floydy to me.
