A massive congratulations is in order to long standing RWP Bass Tuition student Aaron Jacques as he enrols this September into ACM, The Academy of Contemporary Music’s 2 year Bass Guitar Degree BMus (Hons) in Professional Music Performance. Aaron who also recently passed his Rockschool Grade 8, has had lessons for the past 7 years. All I can say is anything is achievable if you set your heart on it, and Aaron’s living proof of that – well done!
Message from Aaron:
To say that 7 years ago I had all the bad habits you could think of when it came to playing bass, it is clear to see how good a teacher Rory really is! In that time he has turned me from a nobody into a somebody who is now a grade 8 player and has also just been accepted into ACM. For anyone who’s aiming to get a future in music, Rory is without a doubt the way to go!

Like a car needs a yearly service, your guitar – ‘your chosen instrument’, ideally needs the same kind of attention. Through constant use you’ll find that your neck might well of moved, your frets might be wearing unevenly or just the general achilles heel problems that you encounter on your instrument like your input or vol/eq controls start crackling or your strap locks begin to fall off. With this in mind, I would like to dedicate this post to my brother Ian Randell. Ian of Sphynx Guitar Tech and Guitar Tuition is simply an incredible individual!
Ian is my personal tech and looks after all of my basses. He will tell you himself how fussy I am…..but, I know how I like my instruments to feel and play and Ian delivers on this.
Ian and his tech services are used by guitar shops throughout devon for their clientele, as well as acoustic, electric and bass guitarists all over the country. If you play guitar, Ian should be without doubt your first point of call for all your guitar tech requirements. Please see Ian’s Testimonial page on his website to view the fantastic comments he gets on a regular basis from everyone. If you’re looking for a great guitar tech, look no further.
Ian is also a fantastic guitar teacher with a wealth of experience behind him, and a tuition clientele base going into the thousands now – past and present! Many of his past students are now running their own businesses as guitar teachers up and down the country, as well as locally in Plymouth. Ian’s wealth of musical knowledge in the practical and theory is quite incredible. His lessons are £35 an hour and worth every penny. If you’re looking for a patient guitar teacher with a solid teaching background, coupled with world class ability then look no further. Ian is also the reason why I play and teach the electric bass guitar today – enough said.. :O). Ian you’re an absolute inspiration and I don’t say it enough, thank you bro…
Please check Ian out for yourselves: www.sphynxguitartech.co.uk
I wanted to share a lovely testimonial that I’ve had from Ray who is the Director at Marett & Messenger Ad Agency in Devon:
“Rory started writing music for my company back in 2008 and he’s now our first port of call when a new piece is required. His professionalism and ability to hit tight deadlines and quality of work really sets him apart. He’s an absolute pleasure to work with and we hope the relationship continues for a long time to come.”

I have just come onboard as a (UK) Artist Endorsee with Ernie Ball Musicman Guitars, Strings and Accessories. I am so excited as they’re such wonderful instruments! It’s going to be an absolute pleasure to work with Alex in supporting such a fantastic brand. I have owned a number of EBMM basses over the years and have found them to be 100% reliable, rock solid and so versatile in tone and playability. You want that rock growl – you have it, you want that funky snap – you have it, you wanna go low creating that R&B/Soul vibe, again EBMM can give you that sound with their instruments…. Quite simply, I’ve fallen in love with these timeless basses and wish to make it permanent! If you are looking for the ultimate ‘all rounder’ instrument, great choice of strings or extra security for your guitar strap, check out Ernie Ball Musicman for yourselves at www.music-man.com
