Re: R.I.P. Tom Petty

Rather a shock and rather young too.

There's too many Wilbury's gone. I was watching "End of the Line" yesterday and they all looked so happy and they played wonderful music. I hope they're having a reunion up there now.

Rest in Peace. :tears:

Re: Stan The Man

Not a name that had come to my attention before, despite his being born in Scotland.

I've been listening to some of the music on those links. Very fine playing and singing indeed. :clap:

Re: A cool bargain at only $250

Sounds great, looks great too, and that asymmetric neck gives it character. :thumbsup: But if it feels good, sounds good, and it makes you want to play and be creative then it's a great guitar. Whatever the cost, whatever the badge! Congratulations on your find Fenson! :clap: Sorry to hear about the...

Re: Over Three Months

Thanks for the listen and comments Blindboy - I appreciate you taking the time and value your opinions.
Especially when you like what I do! :wink:

Shame that recording is off limits for you.

I did enjoy putting that triple improv recording together - you're right, it is a fun approach. :thumbsup:

Re: Over Three Months

Thank you for listening and commenting so favourably gentlemen! :D I find acoustic blues rather tricky to do to a level that's better than embarrassing. As I just can't seem to get into playing electric any more it means blues has taken a back seat. I will just keep nibbling away at it and hope an o...

Over Three Months

Over three months since I posted any music here. A once regular routine has rather tailed off. Also aware of how little I've been posting generally. So just to say ... I'm still playing ... well, sort of playing. All my intended projects have stalled but not to worry. So here's a few recent bits and...

Re: Who's there?

A lengthy restoration job - but they usually are for good results!

Hope the freedom to get playing with your new guitars goes well, and that there isn't too much of a learning curve with the upgraded Cubase! :thumbsup:

Re: Hollow body guitar

Full hollow body is somewhere between semi acoustic and acoustic for volume.

I had a quick look at YouTube videos on a search.

This might help show the level of difference?

Re: Another Shade O Red

Great teamwork and interplay - such a good result particularly given you'd only just met.

Add to that a very fine piece of fluent and passionate bluesy guitar playing. Excellent indeed!!! :clap: :clap:

Re: Prhrygian Improvisations

Thanks guys! :D All this Phrygian stuff has got me starting to mess around with a bit of flamenco - many years since I last played any. I suppose it's a logical step to explore. But I'm not sure my older and aching fingers are up to making much of a go of it though. Having to tackle it with a small ...

Re: RIP Gregg Allman

The endless gig would be something to hope for.

Another fine musician gone, may he rest in peace.

He certainly made a real big impression on the world during his life!
