Hope you're good?
Just wanted to say Merry Christmas to all you list people and here is something worth watching over the Christmas period, a Zappa lecture from 1984 talking about composition and all sorts:

The new issue of Guitar Player is now out in the UK and features an interview I did with them, this really meant a lot to me as I grew up with piles of Guitar Player magazine by my bed and I discovered so much wonderful music and information from them and it was from them I first learned about musicians from Fripp to Zappa to Nels Cline. A few of the end of year polls are in and I've been pleased to see Relic and If It Carries On Like This We Are Moving To Morecambe in some of them, which is really cheery. I'll post them as they come in at:
I really hope you have a great Christmas and thank you so much for all your support this year, it has really meant a lot to all of us here at Spencer Park HQ, my wife and I and Loop Baby. If it wasn't for your support none of this would happen. A new year beckons and then everything changes.
