ABOUT

I've been playing since the early '70s, I major on fast, fluent lead guitar, songwriting, recording and producing.

I have a large cache of original material in folk/rock | rock | blues styles.

I record at home and write in all styles; some stuff can be heard at https://soundcloud/jim-oldfield/

* Hey - it being an open mic I spent too much time on setting up my pedalbox and didn't get to tune up before the 8 minute solo at Yellow Arch!!! That don't excuse the bum notes though and I've practised a bit more since :)

** Flying V open mic was played through my mobile phone, using an iRig... hence the struggle trying to change voices on the moby screen!!!
