I need to learn how to do this
If you’ve read the ‘about me’ section of this blog, you’ll know that I worked as a musician before I stumbled into the world of advertising. And one of my main things was playing slide guitar. In fact, I paid my way through university by busking in the style of Ry Cooder in the streets of Glasgow. These days I can hardly find the time to play and my shiny metal dobro sits at the side of the room gathering dust.
But I’ve just rediscovered this old dude on YouTube. He’s called Hannes Coetzee and he plays a really original style of slide guitar by sticking a teaspoon in his mouth. I’m going to have to try it this weekend.
