Johnny Marr Guitar Great

The thing that always gets me about Jonny Marr is he left the Smiths when he was Twenty One! Jonny’s  got some seriously musically inflammable fuel in his tank! I’ve always been a big fan of his since i heard the early Rough Trade releases.My younger brother was a little bit ahead of his time and he was bang on the Smiths from day one.I clearly remember buying Hatful of Hollow in Probe Records Liverpool off this weird dude with bones around his neck & dreadlocks (Pete Burns) the Dead or Alive Frontman.Johnny’s sound was pretty unique for the time when he came along and along with The Edge,Will Sergeant (Echo and The Bunnymen ) & Roddy Frame of Aztec Camera Fame he was a shining light of the guitar in the 80’s. At London Guitar Academy we love Johnny for his melody,chord use & most of all the great songs he’s contributed to! Plus he drove Noel Gallagher from a flegling Oasis to by a guitar from Musicground in Doncaster the same place i drove to from Cheshire to buy my first Les Paul.So nice one Johnny & THANK YOU FOR THE INSPIRATION & JANGLE.

Sixteen clumsy & shy i went to London & i…….. bought a Guild Twelve string & got the best job in the WORLD! I sit in a huge Loft Space on LONSDALE ROAD  all day play my guitar with the best people in London.Every guitar student i see wants to be there….So life is GOOD!! It’s true GUITAR LESSONS LONDON @ London’s HOME OF GUITAR TUITION… the LONDON GUITAR ACADEMY!
