UK singer-songwriter Jon Hart blends modern percussive fingerstyle guitar with emotive/gritty vocals and songwriting to create an awesome one-man acoustic experience. Although his technical abilities could be compared to the likes of Jon Gomm, Newton Faulkner and Petteri Sariola, he offers something distinctive in this small pool of virtuoso acoustic guitarist-singers. As one fan put it 'You have to see it to believe it'. The sole purpose for all Jon's compositions and arrangements, is to emulate them live. He does this with just one acoustic guitar and a vocal harmony pedal (to generate harmonies of his voice and a megaphone effect) without the use of a loop pedal.
NEW! Jon S. Hart - Wicked Game (Chris Isaak cover)
I started arranging this track after watching the trailer to Game of Thrones Season 6 where James Vincent McMorrow’s awesome version was featured. I tried it at the natural speed but decided it worked best a little faster for solo guitar.
I then realised this week, it was featured in the Ross & Rachel ‘get it on’ scene in Friends, so this must have been planted in my brain in 1996!

P.s I haven’t ditched the vocals, I’m just going through another phase of my musicianship and really enjoying sitting back and carving out solo guitar arrangements.
