Hi, I’m Jonathan Oakey, the owner of Gloopy Guitars. The site is named after my user name on several Internet forums – GloopyJon. I will post articles here, often related to videos that I publish on YouTube. My YouTube channel is here!
I grew up in England, attending school in Gloucester and then reading Classics at Peterhouse, Cambridge University. After working in London for three years, I moved to Belgium in 1993 where I have lived ever since.
I played the piano as a child and also started playing the guitar, but never took it seriously until 2012, thanks to Rocksmith. I've also done a lot of singing, including over 30 amateur shows.
Since 2012 I have been avidly accumulating guitar-related information as well as guitars and related gear, and I decided to create this site to share some of my knowledge, experiences and opinions with anybody who might be interested.
