Virtuoso guitarist John Goldie explores the world of solo guitar – from Fingerstyle jazz a la Martin Taylor to solo arrangements of classics like Smoke on the Water and Heard it through the Grapevine plus everything in between!

In John Goldie's hands, an acoustic guitar becomes something more than a musical instrument. It becomes an extension of the man himself.

Regarded as one of the finest acoustic guitarists in the world, his unique ability to blend various styles of music with mind bending fingerstyle techniques has made him a firm favourite with audiences across the globe. As a solo performer or with his band, the Acoustic Unit, John has impressed audiences worldwide with both his own compositions and brilliant arrangements of pop and rock classics including, Smoke on the water, Honky Tonk woman, September, The Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine Anymore etc, which can be found on his last two solo CD’s, Picked in the Past and A Little of What You Fancy, both released to critical acclaim and also praise from members of the Rolling Stones and Queen to name but a few. With his band , John has released two eclectic CD’s , Open 4 Closure and most recently Chocolate Maze , all original compositions with Celtic , Blues and Funk coming together in a heady mixture of tracks which according to one rave review “crosses more borders than a foreign correspondent!”
