Name: Nick Andrew
Track entered: L’amour D’hier
Current main guitar: Modified Ibanez RG 550
Like many a rocker, it was a Maiden track that first got Nick into playing guitar. “I was miming along to Wrathchild on a mate’s guitar and I accidentally played the right chord at the right time,” he recalls. “I worked out the rest of the song by ear and I’ve never put down a guitar since!” Nick’s love of the guitar has grown over time and today he counts Jeff Beck, Allan Holdsworth and Paco de Lucia among his all-time favourite players. He’d love to take the title but admits he’d be thrilled simply to “get a wee mention in Guitarist”.
