Home for summer


Hello gang,

After ten weeks of travelling (Europe/UK), I'm back home in Brisbane, just in time for summer heat, and the bushfire season. It was a fantastic tour, so many great memories & new friends. Jet lag is always a problem for me, especially after such a long tour, but I must admit, I quite like listening to the birds singing in the early morning, and I can pack a lot into a day when I'm up at 5!

There are recording projects waiting for me, so it was straight back in the studio, with new projects for various artists.

I love producing, and recording music! 🤗

I'm taking a break from touring and performing until January, but I have some announcements about guitar learning opportunities...

I will be presenting more Michael Fix guitar camps next year, & bookings are already being taken for these events.

  • April 4 & 5, 2020, Wollongong, NSW - 2 days (details coming soon.) Contact:
  • Austria, (Wachau) 4 days 10-13 August 2020 (language: German & English)
  • Norway 4 days 20-23 August 2020 (language: English) Contact: Odd Jensrud

details about the workshops are here

All these guitar camps have limited number of places available, so it's essential to book early.

 Finally, here's a nice memory of the UK tour, a performance of Summertime with the fabulous Christine Collister. Christine will be returning to Australia in January for a tour taking in Victoria, NSW, & Qld. Our tour dates are online here, with more to be added soon. Our new album North & South is available online.

New digital single release...


August 23 is the launch of a new track, The Balcony Bunch (Band Version), a single released to online streaming services. The composition was inspired by my sons, and features two of them on the recording; Adrian on Drums, Joshua on Bongos. I love playing music with my boys!

It's a fun track, it somehow reminds me of a sit-com theme, and I hope it makes you smile! Check it out, streaming now:

un-learning - re-learning Classical Gas



Have you ever had to 'unlearn' a skill that's totally ingrained, and then had to re-learn it in a new way?

As a follow-up to last week's video request for Classical Gas (thanks for all your comments), I was rummaging through a box of old VCR tapes & came across a TV performance from 1998, where I was asked to step in for Tommy Emmanuel at a major outdoor concert event in Sydney.

I hope you enjoy the video...

(The actual TV performance starts at 2:17)


I'm 15 again, re-learning Classical Gas. (Video Request)


John, a member of the 'Sunshine Coast Guitar Orchestra' asked me if I would video a performance of the Mason Williams 1968 instrumental hit Classical Gas.

That sounded like a great idea - I've been playing that tune since I was 15 - but it got me thinking; there are so many versions of this tune around, with many, I thought, lets go back to the source...and for the past few days, I've been 15 again, learning Classical Gas all over again - and loving it!
