All about Gary 'Guitar' Nunn


Gary 'Guitar' Nunn

Gary 'Guitar' Nunn. Guitar and Vocals.

I started learning to play guitar when I was about 10 years old. My father played the guitar and was always sitting in the front room playing Shadows songs and I thought I can do that. I borrowed an Acoustic guitar from my friend and sat in my bedroom all day until I could play Apache by The Shadows. After that I started learning everything I listened to, even adverts on the tv.

Over the next few I years I played in a couple of bands, whilst learning how to play other instruments. I learnt how to play the piano, some of the brass instruments and a little bit of drums.

In about 1984 I was in a local band called Stratus when I had to switch to bass guitar as our bass player couldn't make a gig and we didn't know any others but we knew a guitarist. That was me a bass player for the next few years playing in several bands including Mod Cons ( a popular local band in the 80's).

I gave up music for a few years from the late 80's to the mid 90's but it called me back. I went back onto guitar and started playing in local bands again. I was mainly into rock then and played in a band called Twist Of Fate. During this time I got to play with people like Phil Hilborne, some of the guys from Iron Maiden and Whitesnake. This was also about the time I did some gigs with The Martells up until they split up.

While The Martells were apart I played in various parts of the world with Adam Faiths band The Roulettes, The Andre de Moller Band, Eclipse and more recently Just Blues.

When I'm not out gigging with The Martells, I teach guitar. If anybody would like lessons then you can contact me via email: or telephone: 01473684582
