"Hello everyone! I hope this is the right place but I thought I'd share a couple of tablatures of my own compositions - they're for the renaissance lute. I've put up videos of them on youtube and embed them on this site so you can…"

About me


My name is Jamie (known as Blake12000 over on my youtube channel)

I'm a composer and although I've only started quite recently - I'm loving it. I mainly compose for lute although I have plans for chamber music (which has a lute in it of course ;) ) and for the piano which I am learning to play.

Check out my youtube channel where I upload the compositions which I can play. And subscribe!

Also, if you want to play my compositions, visit my new website:

On a more personal note:

I am very keen on classical music, especially early music and lute music. Bach, Dowland and Piccinini being my favourite composers. I also like Shostakovich and a lot of minimalist music such as Steve Reich and Simeon Ten Holt.

My musical story goes as follows, when I was very young, I tried the piano but both couldn't be bothered and found using two hands at the same time difficult. So I stopped. Many years later I bought an acoustic guitar and got lessons. I took to it very quickly but quickly found that I didn't like any acoustic guitar music, what I liked was classical guitar music such as Fernando Sor. I got a classical guitar as a Christmas present. An incredibly nice old man whom I am very fond of told me about lutes. (he's a fanatical early music lover (like me now!)) I looked them up, loved the look of them, bought some CDs, adored the sound, saved up the cash and bought one!
It has made my life so much more exciting - I've joined a chamber group for early music, joined a chior and will be performing with it at the Royal Albert Hall in November 2009! (Don't get me wrong, its just chance, I'm not a very good singer!).
I've re-tried the piano and have taken to well! I'm very pleased... :)

Anyway, that's my musical life - it may only be recently that I've started to love it but I can now say that its my main passion, along with writing novels.
