Hi, and thanks for visiting my website. My name is Dave Barlow and I’ve been working in and around music for the last 30+ years, mainly as a guitar player for various bands and projects playing in the usual bars and clubs including some prestigious venues like The Marquee, Astoria, Mean Fiddler (some now sadly closed) and many more, plus some great outdoor events like Rock the Park, Cambridge Rock Festival plus a few others of late.

I'm what you would call an old school style of guitar player, I tend to go for feel rather than technique, so a more meat and potatoes kind of playing (although I have been known for the odd Van Halen tapping here and there and perhaps a snippet of sweep picking when I'm feeling brave), I upgrade and repair my own guitars, play in a few rock bands, help with recording, do some session work, consulting etc.. the list is pretty endless.

* Bands: CRASH n BURN and RANSOM.
* Guitar repair, Amp Repair, and upgrade service.
