Brett Edward Garsed born 20 April is an Australian musician and songwriter, best known for his work as a guitarist with John Farnham and T. Helmerich , as well as being a former member of the American band Nelson. After about a month of initial lessons, he continued to teach himself and formed a band composed of his two cousins and a mutual friend and began playing live.
This encouraged Garsed to give up his job as a licensed plumber and pursue a career as a professional musician, prompting him to send demo tapes to as many record companies and management companies as he could find.
I just wanted to get into a good band. Farnham, at this time still a member of the Little River Band , was planning a solo album and invited him to be a part of the project. The resulting album, Whispering Jack , went on to become the biggest selling album in Australian history, followed by sellout tours of Australia and Europe. Garsed continued to tour and record with Farnham until early , when he was invited to the US to audition for Nelson, a band led by Gunnar and Matthew , sons of the late Ricky Nelson.
The audition was a success and the resulting album, After the Rain , went on to sell in excess of three million copies and yielded a national No. Greeted with critical acclaim worldwide, the pair recorded the follow-up album Exempt in His first solo album, Big Sky , was released in After nearly a decade, he followed this up with Dark Matter in In , Rock Guitar Improvisation , his second instructional DVD was released covering many aspects of his technique.
This DVD also included some live footage. Garsed played rhythm guitar and provided backing vocals. In , Garsed took part in the John Farnham "Whispering Jack - 25th Anniversary" tour around Australia, revisiting the parts he created on Australia's highest selling locally made album. Garsed also released his solo album Dark Matter in Garsed is mainly an improviser guitarist, renowned for his legato and hybrid picking technique, a combination that provides him with an extremely fluid sound to his playing.
He has also mastered a distinctive slide guitar sound, specially noticeable in his latest releases. Rather than relying on scale patterns and figures, he plays with a relative pitch approach, which allows him to play the melodies in his mind.
A fundamental component of his music is the use of wide intervals and chromatic passing tones. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
