In the early 1960s I worked for Selmers, the guitar shop in Charing Cross Road (London) which was a meeting place for guitarists. I met Steve Howe there, we became friends and he wrote a lovely recommendation for my guitar teaching around 30 years ago:
Regarding Mr Turner:
I’ve known Doug Turner on and off for over twenty years. I’ve always admired his guitar playing, from the first time I heard him play, this expertise with fingerstyle / country picking was blatantly apparent.
He’s gentle and his sensitivity should make him a good teacher in my view.
