James Tips for Starting out--by Ed Arnold:
1. Open your mind to other artists and soak up all the knowledge they have. Don’t be shy, or subconscious that they might be better; their information will make you better. James remembers coming to Peterborough and hanging around Bobby Watson one of Peterborough’s best guitar players. “I knew I wasn’t as good as him, but could learn from him.”
2. Adapt. If someone asks if you can do this? Don’t say no.
