Pete Radcliffe was a history teacher at our school. He lived at the end of our road and was a keen guitarist. I’d started playing, and he introduced me to some of his favourites, Larry Coryell, John McLaughlin, Al Di Meola. Pete didn’t take a guitar group at school but this piece was written very much with that in mind. It’s in 6 parts: 4 lines are for students or early starters, and are fairly simple. Then there’s a bass line for a more advanced member of the group, and a part for the teacher, Pete’s part I suppose, which fills in the chords. A simple, catchy tune, with the sort of chords we were listening to at the time. Pete invited the whole history class over one night and cooked a fantastic salmon fondue. I kept the recipe for years.
