Born To Play The Blues
Ray Beadle was born in Fairfield Hospital on May 5 1978 in the western suburbs of Sydney. Ray's first memory of guitar was hearing his father Ray Snr play at home. Listening to his father strumming on his acoustic sparked something inside which would cause an obsession with the six stringed instrument for the rest of the young Ray Jnrs life!
Coming from a family of music lovers, it seemed inevitable that Ray would play music.
Blues and Jazz were styles introduced to Ray by his uncles who taught him to learn guitar solos and chords by listening to records and finding the notes by ear.
