Worlds Biggest Band 2016
Information on this year's Worlds Biggest Band event. www.guitarsonthebeach.com
Last night I ordered a new DMX light controller. This will give me more control over my LED par cans, enabling me to produce better quality light shows for my own band and performances, not to mention other performers I work with.
Today was my third day on work experience, we had a jam packed day like yesterday. We started the day by heading into Barnstaple for ukulele lessons at Sticklepath school. At the school we had three different groups to teach, one of which were quite good. After that we went to Soundpad to buy some lighting equipment for Paul's stage lights. Next we had another 2 ukulele lessons which were fun. Finally we drove back to Exmoor for another ukulele workshop with a group of school kids. Ukulele Wednesday was the best day so far!
Today on my second day of work experience with Paul, we started at South Molton school and gave some children guitar lessons. After that we came back to Braunton for my own guitar lesson. Next it was my sisters lesson which I played the cajon (small drum) for, and assisted her along with songs that Paul had shown her recently. Next we headed back to Ilfracombe to collect the equipment for a ukulele workshop that evening, once everything was packed up it was time to go. For this particular workshop, we drove to Simonsbath house on Exmoor. The workshop was full of enthusiastic children, and ran very smoothly. After the workshop we headed back home. A very long tiring second day, and much of the same tomorrow.
On Sunday, I set up a Facebook Page for my PA and Light Show Hire. I should have done it years ago, within 24 hours I received 1 booking, at Lynton Town Hall, for a Pink Floyde tribute band, and one very good enquiry for a festival in Bude. Looking good I think.

I've had a wonderful afternoon running a ukulele workshop for The Princess Theatre, Burnham-on-Sea. A terrific bunch of people, all eager to learn the great little instrument. The workshop had been sold out for a couple of weeks causing the theatre to have to turn a few people away.
Another ukulele workshop has been booked at the theatre for the 7th February 2014. Some tickets for this event have been sold already, many who came to the workshop, have expressed their intention to attended again in February. A couple even keen enough to have shown interest in ukulele lessons with me by Skype and FaceTime.
By the time I had driven home to Ilfracombe, I had received this email from one of the attendees.
Very little advertising was needed to sell out the event, just social media and posters in the theatre.
While I was in Burnham-on-Sea, I took a walk around the Town, and along the sea front, where took a few pictures.

I received a phone call enquiring about my guitar lessons. It was a very 'everyday' enquiry that covered all the usual questions. The enquirer wanted lessons for her son and agreed to all my terms. The conversation went on.
Me 'so, what is your sons name'?
Enquirer '**** McCartney'.
I quipped, 'well that's a great name for a guitar player.'
To my surprise, the enquirer replied, 'actually he is related to Paul McCartney, his father is Paul McCartney's second cousin'.
This one could be a natural!
