With 35 years of playing and obsessing over guitars, Dave is a self-confessed guitaroholic. This obsession peaked in the early nineties while reading mountainous piles of Guitarist Magazine and living the dream of playing in a signed band with co-founder Danny.
Dave admits, ‘these days the old fingers are a bit rusty but I’m really excited to be playing and reviewing guitars as well as getting the soldering iron out for some of our upcoming features turning ok guitars into great guitars on a budget. In particular, though, I’m really looking forward to helping raise awareness of mental health issues and the positive impact that music has to aid recovery as well as helping to raise funds for our chosen charity Tonic Music for Mental Health”
In his teenage years Dan Picked up his brother’s guitar and that was it, he was hooked and formed several bands before later playing and touring with Dave before finally quitting music altogether.
Dan says, “looking back, I was never a natural musician but I worked at it, (all my free time), I was obsessed and I loved it, so I can’t believe I gave it all up and hadn’t played guitar in over 20 years!
The recent pandemic gave me space to evaluate what was missing in my world, and one day, I just picked up a guitar again and that was it! - a few phone calls later, me and Dave came up with Winning at Music and it’s great to be playing again especially with other humans!"
