Ed & Clive, improvised duet Ed Scott is a fine steel string guitarist, playing both plectrum and fingerstyle, he came all the way from New Zealand to study with me this week at my one-on-one guitar workshops, here in Montefrio, sunny Spain. We had a ball, covering so many aspects of my unique guitar style: my chords (some very challenging) - along with associated 'Clivestyle' riffs and licks - plus my innovations and a number of my graded original guitar compositions... In this video, we are both improvising - limiting our playing to a mid-fretboard position in the unusual guitar key of C#... I sustained the root note C# on the 8th fret of the sixth string and kept a sort of accompaniment, while Ed searched for sweet and melodic notes...

Toxi & Noxi (original cartoon) I wanted to create a funny anti-smoking cartoon that children would find amusing, one that would also leave an anti-smoking message... I had written some music based on the gait of a giraffe, so this is the original video I made some four years ago ( I've enhanced the sound a bit!) The whole thing - story, hand drawn 'monopedic' caricatures and music - all original - was created from my (vivid) imagination - by my hand and eye... I imagined that the hopping of these characters would be an auto-reaction of coughing - so (of course) I made them chain smokers... They lived in a land of cigarette trees, so, by simply plucking a cigarette, they would cough - and hop - cough and hop - as a means of getting around...! (Just like two-legged people who smoke..!)

Flick of Her Wrist (original song) Woody Allen is a unique comedian - since I first saw him in Annie Hall, back in 1977 I've been a fan! Flick of Her Wrist, A new song by Clive Davies Don't leave me alone like this, 'cos you know that I'm frightened of thunder And without your kiss I can't function anyhow Don't leave me alone like this, you are pulling the rug out from under me And all my fears are returning now. Our romantic bliss was always enshrouded in mystery As the sweetest miss, you would kiss but never tell And now there's this, we are two little pieces of history Is that all there is of our Wishing Well? Could this be real, I think I'm deluded It all seems delusion, I feel I am dreaming My whole world is tumbling, my tongue trips and stumbles Defeated I'm weary, so weakened and lost With a flick of your wrist I'm consigned to be utterly miserable Or are you just being cruel to be kind I'm dismissed, but allow me some positive thinking Maybe one last kiss could change your mind. In my confusion I'm losing my reason Seizing small images, grasping at straws Gone is all coolness, I'm flustered and foolish Losing forever whatever was yours - and mine Don't leave me alone like this, 'cos you know that I'm frightened of thunder And without your kiss I can't function anyhow Don't leave me alone like this, you are pulling the rug out from under me And all my fears are returning now

Pachelbel's Canon (my alternative chords) Since 1680 many composers, and more recently, songwriter's, have used this chord sequence as a model...! So I tossed a couple of ideas around... LoL

We had just watched Francis, the Montefrio flamenco guitarist playing alfresco... Francis then stood aside, and he asked Honzik to play... This young boy sat casually on the wall, and performed this delightful Samba (which I didn't know..!)

Harp Song (original, early recording) This is an early version of a piece that I wrote and recorded first some five years ago. My very good friend Peter Hanlon, a fine Fando musician, had sent me a video of a harpist that so impressed me - that I wrote Harp Song as a tribute... This initial recording turned out to be a Major Lesson for me...! LoL (Please watch it right through...!) A year or so later, I posted another version on Youtube and Fandalism: http://www.fandalism.com/pimahombre#!/pimahombre/cArH So, apologies for not posting a new video this week - August is my busiest month: Tomoko, a lovely lady who few in from Tokyo, Japan for five days of my guitar workshops, had just left... Then Jan - a ten year old classical guitarist (he's already been studying the guitar for five years !) arrived with his family from Prague in the Czech Republic, for ten days of guitar study with me in Montefrio... At such a young age, he's already a wonderful guitar player, so our workshops are a lot of fun!

Clive's impromptu chord progressions (original) This week I have a talented 15 year old guitar student from the UK here at my guitar workshops. Today I quickly scribbled an impromptu chord sequence for him. In this video I play it first as an arpeggio study - then with a sort of Bossa Nova rhythm!

Koos the Tap Dancer (original song) It was such fun for me to create this song, I 'genetically engineered' (ha, ha) this South African character... Having lived there for many years, I encountered many versions of 'Koos' a huge Afrikaaner - who had such fascinating stories to tell...

Sunny Side of Blue (original song) Susie was over in the UK for a few days, but her advice for me to change from funky to contemplative, echoed in my mind... Simple song sketches, scribbled a few days ago - blossomed... This slow blues song simply had to be written...

Melodia para Jessica (original instrumental) I'd only just finished writing this piece for my latest student, Jessica, when her final guitar workshop with me was due... It was getting late at night when I finally picked up my guitar to record this video... And early Saturday morning, we had to drive her to Granada airport for her flight back to Italy... Which meant I missed my weekly - new video post...! So here it is, a day later... I'd written this little melody for her, because she loved the famous E minor guitar piece ,'Romance' which she wanted to play, but I felt it was too advanced for her novice skills - I hope this simpler melodic piece will provide a stepping stone to that other beautiful piece of music!

Jimi does Funky flamenco (original) The Jimi Hendrix 7+9 chords, led me to produce a new piece in Funky / Flamenco style based on some items that I covered in my guitar workshops with Jacob, a fine Danish guitarist, living In Sweden, who recently came down for ten days of intensive study with me. Here's the link to my, 'Shades of Jimi' that also inspired me: http://www.fandalism.com/pimahombre#!/pimahombre/djq8

Arroyo de Los Molinos, Montefrio, Music by Clive Davies For our glorious and sunny (though very dry) part of Spain, I've written some musical interludes to accompany a video walk down the mountain stream that flows by the gates of our house... Half a kilometer further downstream the stream passes through a steep gorge, collecting more water as it enters the valley of the Roman Mills... Meandering down and down, in a series of waterfalls and sparkling rock pools, it then splits into twin waterfalls, cascading into a beautiful swimming lagoon, surrounded by fig and pomegranate trees!
