This week we start a one off three part special with guitarist, band leader and session musician Jamie McCredie. We kick this off by discussing how he learnt the guitar; covering self-study vs formal education.
Jamie's passion is clear - when he sets his mind to something, he is going to do it. Learning the guitar is something that he obsessed over, taking great dedication to become good at what he loves.
Getting an insight into how he learnt the guitar, particularly the difference between self learning from books or videos vs formal classroom / teacher style was really interesting.
Jamie was brilliant with his time. Despite having a cold, his enthusiasm for talking about music was clear, which led this to be a one off trilogy of episodes.
The good cause for the trilogy is the British Association for Preforming Arts Medicine, who were critical in helping Jamie at an important point in his career.
