Russ, Yes it was a very nice weekend away thanks, our first of 2008 due to car problems. Some of our friends who run a pub/B&B in Bridport are retiring next month, so a few of us stayed with them for probably the last time (at the pub anyway). Two of us have Birthdays 'round about this time, so ...

Hi Gordon,

We'd like to add our belated Birthday wishes. We were down in Bridport for the weekend and couldn't find an internet cafe. Anyway, hope you had a very enjoyable day.

Love and best wishes,

Roger & Em (X)

Gordon, It's interesting that you mention John Gustafson. I first came across him with Roxy Music, as he played on three of their 70's albums and also toured with them a few times (I saw him playing with them in 1975). I always liked his playing. I wonder what he's doing these days? One of my more m...

Bass Players

Gordon,

I guess that in the days of the GG band you must have recorded and performed with quite a few bass players. Who did you enjoy working with, both as people and musicians?

Thanks,

Roger

New Farida Guitars

Gordon, Just wondering if you have any plans to have a look at the new Farida electrics, which are based on the Tele and the Slimline Tele? I was watching a version of Dodo's where you use your Farida and it certainly has sound that is fitting for the piece, particularly as it is so inexpensive. Any...

Hi Russ!

Our PC is now fixed (as is our central heating - pity about the car!).

If you want to post some contact details or send a private message I'ii try to get the knobs sent to you over the weekend.

All the best,

Roger

Russ, I may be able to help with the knobs. The're from a Hondo Strat I had about 25 years ago. When I bought the guitar the knobs were already going yellow, so I changed them for a nice white set. The guitar didn't last long, but I'm sure I still have the knobs somewhere. We're having PC problems a...

Gordon,

Talk about a quick response!!

Unfortunately Em is now in bed with the 'flu virus which seems to affecting so many people in Portsmouth, but I'm sure she'll be fine for your gigs in 2008!

Best to you and Hilary,

Toni, When I started trying to play the guitar again I found it quite awkward to use a pick. I just took things gradually until I could use one for single strings and then chords (downstrokes). Problems returned when I tried to play rapid downstroke/upstroke - the pick usually ended up flying around...

Steel Strings on a Classical Guitar?

This may seem like a strange one, but perhaps not so strange bearing in mind Gordon's car boot guitar. I am currently using two guitars, a Cort X2 electric and a Hondo classical with nylon strings. The Hondo is great for picking up and playing when I have a few spare minutes, but I'd also like the o...

Likewise Russ - have a good one everybody! Also thanks to Gordon, Sue and everyone who contributes regularly to the forum. Over the past few years alot of these have disappeared or are dying on their feet due to lack of a contribution from the artiste and/or forum members, or because of spam problem...
