Fellow guitar nerds!

Stairway, Denied is a collection of guitar transcriptions, tablature, and occasional background miscellany for off-the-beaten-track songs and bands.

It’s my nostalgic nerd-out over the music that has inspired me to play guitar so ineptly for 20-odd years. The focus is on nineties and early-noughties post-hardcore, math-rock, indie, noise-rock, post-rock, and the like. As I settle into middle age you might see some blues and 70s rock too.

It’s what I grew up with and, despite detours through everything from bebop and dubstep to medieval plainsong, it’s still where my musical heart is. And besides, doesn’t the world have enough transcriptions of Enter Sandman and Stairway to Heaven.
