About Us

One of the best and most interesting instruments to play is the guitar. Not only does it sound incredible when played correctly, but it is so versatile too! From classic songs, to heavy metal, a guitar can be used for all forms of music.

Hi, my name is Andrew Patterson, and I have been playing guitar professionally for the last 10 years. Music has always been my biggest passion, and from a young age it was something that completely captivated me. I remember sitting in the back of my dad’s car at the age of six, and hearing the riff of Black Sabbath’s ‘Paranoid’, for the first time. I was obsessed with the song, and knew that one day I wanted to be able to play the riff myself. 

After having guitar lessons as a child, when I was 10 years old I finally perfected the ‘Paranoid’ riff. It is still a moment I remember so vividly. Through my teenage years I was in various bands with friends and my love for playing the guitar continued to grow. This led me to where I am now, playing guitar professionally for a living. 

There is something so special about connecting with the chords, and bringing a song together through playing the guitar. I decided to set up my site, Tone Man, as a way of sharing my enthusiasm and excitement of playing guitar with others. 

Through this blog I hope to help and encourage others who have just started, or are on their own guitar playing journey. This blog is the ultimate guide to playing guitar, from the best guitars to purchase, to the easiest rock songs to play.
