I’d just like to nervously announce that my first new single in 7 years, Cocoon, is out now on all streaming platforms. From the forthcoming album The Faintest Idea.

This song is for my intrepid daughter, Indigo. “Stop worrying dad.” - Indi, aged 3. I will try.

Amazing guy, out of this world, never saw somebody playing like that using the tuning pegs.

One question though, after how many turns you have to change the oil of the pegs?

LOL Herman

What a beautiful song for the little one, and such a beautiful name.

Your skill level on that guitar is far from anything I will ever be able to do, but very interesting to watch.

Thanks for the post.


This year the diet is definitely gonna stick!

You've invented something entirely new with your style - or at least I've never seen anything like it. Is it something you came up with just experimenting on your own, or is there someone out there who has influenced you or gave you the idea for this?

And of course, your baby girl telling you to stop worrying... well, I can't stop and think about that because if I do someone starts chopping onions and brining tears to my eyes even while I it makes me smile. I'm not crying though. You're crying, but I'm not crying. No I'm not.


It takes as long as it takes unless you quit - then it takes forever and you will never get there.

Thanks guys for the feedback (both on the song and my personal issues!) [br][br]

My new song "Deep Sea Fishes" is released today. Fingerstyle guitar and voice. It's a love song for a hideous lonely creature, and is in no way autobiographical... :D

First, it's a gorgeous song. The lyrics are powerful and exquisite and tragic and inspiring all at the same time.

Second, as others have said, I've never seen anyone do on guitar what you do. Wow.

Third, thank you for sharing that you're nervous about releasing a new song. I'm getting close to doing the same thing and am also nervous. Glad to hear that even more accomplished people still get nerves before releases -- thank you!

The fingerstyle master also hints at a new signature acoustic model. Fingerstyle virtuoso Jon Gomm has released the video for his new single, Cocoon, which puts his ridiculously advanced acoustic guitar technique, highlighted by some expert tuning-peg twisting, on full display.
