Since then, he hasn’t looked back. He also specialises in many other areas of music, Sam teaches guitar in schools, colleges, and workshops. He does session work, utilizing his playing and writing ability within various different styles of music. Sam’s notable guitar influences include Guthrie Govan, Tosin Abasi, Mark Knopfler, Graham “Pin” Pinney, and the 80s.
