Ready to Roll


“Ready To Roll” is a true rock n roll song in every sense of the word and I wanted to lay down a blues rock riff that had a real drive and power and I feel this song has that struttin swagger to it.
I particularly like the guitar solo and its stops and starts with the solid bass playing groove it improvises over.
The recording was a really great day and evening of inspired playing on guitar and bass from myself and positive energy from producer Mr Secret.
I thoroughly enjoyed laying down the guitar tracks and the hard rock riffs were played with a 2mm jim dunlop plectrum to give a stinging hard attack on the ten gauge strings.
The actual main riff was written months earlier and I had been dying to record it so when Mr Secret was available we made the most of the session and it was great.

Mr. Secret

It’s been a long time coming but we have finally cut a new track for the album, oh yeah baby!
Ready to Roll is the latest hot rocking track recorded at the Sutton Coldfield studio in Birmingham. A mixture of beer, coffee, hot tubs and the trials and tribulation of living with the fairer sex.

There’s a rough cut of the song after the days recording for you to listen to:

Addicted to Sin – Great new session

This is a video clip of me recording the guitar solo to “Addicted To Sin” which is a rock n roll killer track with a great riff and catchy chorus.
I enjoyed rocking out on this solo and the vibe was just brilliant. Full song at the bottom of page.

Recorded ‘Slaving Away’

Hiya all.
The new hard rock studio sessions have a vibe and energy that just blew me away and each time Mr Secret and I got together to record there was a great atmosphere of excitement.
I feel that my guitarwork has reached a new maturity and the tone and the playing through my trusty Gibson Epiphone Les Paul blasting through a Marshall Amp with just natural amp overdrive resulted in a fat,warm,dirty sound which is just what I like.
Hope you all really enjoy the new Rock tracks and 2011 is gonna be good.

Recorded called “Im just misunderstood”

Yeah rockers and funkateers alike !
The Ritchie and producer Mike Tingle (the secret) got together whilst the Ritchie was on annual leave from his Therapy day job to record a killer Doors/Led Zeppelin inspired hybrid rock tune in Moseley Village.
I think you Ritchie fans will love it.
Mean chunky fat guitar riffs and a pounding hard rock sound.
Its cool groovin rock n roll.
