Gordon Clayton


Gordon has played the bass guitar for over 25 years, firstly playing in bands writing original material and more recently in professional function bands.

Self taught for many years, he studied theory and performance using the RGT syllabus and passed the advanced bass exams (grades 6,7 and 8), with honours.

Gordon teaches bass and guitar through his music tuition practice alongside working in schools and music centres throughout Yorkshire.

Gordon contributes transcriptions and articles to the online bass resource called First Bass And Beyond, a weekly magazine that encourages bassists to learn by playing songs.
