MATRIX (original instrumental) I recorded this in three parts, each part on one of my different instruments... The sound settings were kept the same for each guitar to illustrate their individual characteristics: 3/4 size Student guitar / Flamenco guitar / Ramirez Classical guitar.

FIESTA (original instrumental) Only in my mind, not on paper, this is an earlier classical guitar composition of mine that I'm still doubtful about including in my upcoming September gig (- my first since 2012..!) Gasp! So I first have to write it out - then the piece needs a lot of work to really make it flow..! (Wipes sweaty brow!)

JAZZMOLO (original instrumental) I'd just wished bon voyage to my latest guitar student from UK and I was itching to get to terms with extending a piece that had been going around my mind - I call it 'JAZZMOLO' - so I scribbled a quick cascade of chord symbols and pressed video record... It starts with the music that is a little guitar study, then I improvise on the scribbled chords in the middle section - and end off with the study again..! Oh, and the guitar is a sweet 3/4 sized student model that I bought new in UK last month, for seventy pounds..!

Pumpkin Houses (original song, remix) Let's talk about pumpkin Pied a Terre's and cucumbersome homes That fulfil the two essentials we need Let's talk about eating where we live and living so cheaply, 'Cos we grow our own houses from seed! Let's talk about eating marrow raw as we nibble out a doorway And have breakfast on a passage or two Let's talk about lunching on the lounge with a little marrow-juana Let's talk about vegetable bedroom stew Chorus: Oh, Oh, eat me a hole in a new house Eat me a place to stay Gonna get me an artichoke architect To digest my accommodation needs - today! Let's talk about vegetarian pests, I never have them as guests 'Cos they eat me out of house and home... I was once a marrow cook, with a narrow outlook Now I'm a broadbeaned gastronome! Chorus: Oh, Oh, eat me a hole in a new house Eat me a place to stay Gonna get me an artichoke architect To digest my accommodation needs - today! My calabash cottage is the avocado Ritz For me to habituate With a full fat tummy and roof above my head I'll settle down - lean upon my beanbag - and vegetate!

SOME PEOPLE (original song) 1) SOME PEOPLE LIVE WITHOUT EMOTION, WON'T GET THEIR FEET WET IN THE OCEAN OF LIFE.. THEY'RE NOT PREPARED TO SAY, THAT SOMEWHERE BETWEEN A NOD AND A WINK, SOME PEOPLE APPLY A RULE OF THUMB - SOME ARE DOING GOOD DEEDS – OTHER’S ARE LOOKING THE OTHER WAY..! 2) SOME PEOPLE MIX A POTENT POTION – FOCUSING ON SELF-DEVOTION FABRICATING SELF-PROMOTION - JUST TO GET YOUR VOTE SO BUTTON YOUR COAT - OPEN YOUR MIND, AWARE OF THINGS THAT MIGHT BLINDSIDE YOU JUST READ THE WEATHER CAREFULLY, AND YOUR BOAT WILL STAY AFLOAT..! 3) SOME PEOPLE GO THROUGH ALL THE ACTIONS, AND FOR THE MEREST FRACTION OF THEIR LIVES HEADS BOWED THEY MUMBLE - THEN THEY WALK AWAY... HAVING PAID THEIR WEEKLY PENANCE, AND SALVED THEIR SHAKY CONSCIENCE THEY'RE ALL FIRED-UP AND LICENSED TO BEHAVE IN THE SAME OLD WAY..! 4) SOME PEOPLE SEEM TO GET IT WRONG, WHILE OTHER’S SEEM TO GET IT RIGHT BUT DON’T LET APPEARANCES DECEIVE YOU - MOST FOLKS ACHIEVE SO MUCH BELIEVE IN YOUR SELF, YOU’LL FIND YOUR FORTUNES - ARE IN LIFE, AND NOT IN COOKIES JUST LOOK AND LISTEN BEFORE YOU LEAP – AND DEVELOP A SENSITIVE TOUCH..! 5) SOME PEOPLE KEEP AN EVEN KEEL, ENABLING THEM TO STAY QUITE STABLE, RIDING A GALE, THEY’RE HALE AND HEARTY – THEY’RE ON THE UP AND UP... ENJOYING THE SWEET FRUITS OF THEIR LABOUR, SWEATING, TOILING - LOVING LIFE THEY’RE LIVING LIFE FOR ALL IT’S WORTH - AND NEVER GIVING UP..!

FLAT CAT (original, remix) by Clive Davies In the MARSHMALLOW among the TWEEDS, a tiny SELF lay sleeping Covered in CLOVER, nothing he HEEDS, though his mind through a dream softly PEEPING His mind through a dream softly PEEPING Curled in a ball of CANDYFLOSS, three little TWICE lay DREAMING Neither one nor the other one noting the loss - of the fourth little TWICE who was SCHEMING The fourth little TWICE who was SCHEMING Cheshire a FlatCat eating his dinner, FURRING in contented splendour Waiting for something or nothing to GLIMMER - waiting for something to end-or... BEGIN! A CREAM filled the air of the BRASSY wallow - up SELFED the JUMP - in a hurry! A MONSTER came over the FRIDGE to follow - his FOOTSTOMPS in kind of a CURRY His FOOTSTOMPS in kind of a CURRY 'ZOT!' cried the SELF - as he shot with his P UN - the FLATCAT lay sighing in GLASSES 'OH, Toe is ME! MY Good DEED is DONE!' And rewarded he was... with MOLASSES! And rewarded he was... with MOLASSES!

Just me and my guitar, recording this new song in my studio... (I have limited space when making a green screen video..!) * This is of course the same song as I posted yesterday - Susie suggested that focusing on my song and playing only, might be of interest to some of you...

Butterfly Sonatina (original) Staying with the insect theme (though a little different from my previous video..!) - this one features the first and second movements of my classical guitar piece, Butterfly Sonatina. Bit of a cheek posting this video - as I'd almost forgotten it - hence the many oops moments..! LoL BTW Here's the link to the last movement: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_FePf...

Beastro (original song) Summer has arrived with warm sunshine (and insects..!) I've just seen Melody off, on her way back to Holland. For the last week, she'd been attending my guitar workshops, here in Montefrio. And my Susie is over in UK - so now I'm relaxing... Beastro was one of my first video posts... I decided to regurgitate it..! LoL

Ed & Clive, improvised duet Ed Scott is a fine steel string guitarist, playing both plectrum and fingerstyle, he came all the way from New Zealand to study with me this week at my one-on-one guitar workshops, here in Montefrio, sunny Spain. We had a ball, covering so many aspects of my unique guitar style: my chords (some very challenging) - along with associated 'Clivestyle' riffs and licks - plus my innovations and a number of my graded original guitar compositions... In this video, we are both improvising - limiting our playing to a mid-fretboard position in the unusual guitar key of C#... I sustained the root note C# on the 8th fret of the sixth string and kept a sort of accompaniment, while Ed searched for sweet and melodic notes...

Joystick (original guitar trio) Over forty years ago, good friend Ian Harper suggested that we both take flying lessons... We did! And a doorway to the sky was opened...! Then life intervened, and we lost contact... Last week, out of the blue, Ian contacted me via email... So I made this little video for him, my dear old friend.

RIPPLES (original instrumental) Susie and I met the delightful classical guitarist Lisa Hurlong in Granada today, we had the most wonderful entertaining lunchtime chat with her ... Arriving home afterwards I was inspired to pick up my (newly repaired) Ramirez guitar - with its long fingerboard and huge sound - it's very macho and a demanding instrument to play (not like my blonde Aria flamenco guitar - which is definitely female..!) LoL

Toxi & Noxi (original cartoon) I wanted to create a funny anti-smoking cartoon that children would find amusing, one that would also leave an anti-smoking message... I had written some music based on the gait of a giraffe, so this is the original video I made some four years ago ( I've enhanced the sound a bit!) The whole thing - story, hand drawn 'monopedic' caricatures and music - all original - was created from my (vivid) imagination - by my hand and eye... I imagined that the hopping of these characters would be an auto-reaction of coughing - so (of course) I made them chain smokers... They lived in a land of cigarette trees, so, by simply plucking a cigarette, they would cough - and hop - cough and hop - as a means of getting around...! (Just like two-legged people who smoke..!)

Arietta (my variations) After a busy musical Christmas where I felt I was composing, songwriting, singing and playing my guitar, continuously... A change of pace was necessary... So here's a remix of a beautiful classical guitar study that I rearranged and wrote a series of variations for... Recorded in front of a small audience some four years ago - I always felt that the video could be enhanced.... So I got out some spanners and paintbrushes - then me and my new app Filmora, did some work on it..! LoL

God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen In this piece, I don't allow the Merry Gentlemen to rest! Starts fairly simply, then I used my mouth trumpet for a duet (ha ha) After which my fingers start running amok - and virtually tie themselves up in knots.... Gasp! (Keep watching the black screen - Mister Bean comes in to save the day...!) LoL
