Planet Rock DAB Station

The Roxy Music guitarist Phil Manzanera is doing a show on Planet Rock called A is for Axe on Friday and Sunday evenings. It features tracks from some of the guitar greats and so might be of interest to some of the anoraks out there!

GBBF 2007

Hi Gordon! Yet again, what a great gig! In some respects it was quite similar to a couple of years ago, as people were gradually distracted from their beer as you started playing and began to gather around the stage. The chatter gradually died down too, with some looks of amazement during “God save ...

Gordon/Russ, Remaining on the subject of strings, do either of you have any thoughts about nylon strings? I currently use D'Addario on my little Hondo, but have found that different strings give different results, particularly on the bass strings. Thanks, Roger PS Gordon, which guitars will be makin...

Gordon,

Excellent news!

Can the SP strings be used on electrics, or will you still be using Ernie Ball?

See you on Thursday.

Colin,

Just wondering if you are still planning to visit the Great British Beer Festival? If you are let me know via the forum and I'll post my e-mail address so that we can make some arrangements.

Gordon, As always well said sir! I'd never come across Bridgett before, so it was nice to learn about another highly talented guitarist who plays both acoustic and electric guitar (can't think who the other one is :wink: ). Best wishes, Roger (&Em) Ps Much as we'd love to, we can't make Andover ...

Hobo/Bob, Sorry that neither of you can make it to the GBBF 2007. When Gordon played at the festival in 2005 it really was a great day in every respect. Never mind, I'll have a half for both of you! Bob, If the Andover gig had been on Saturday we would both have been there, but unfortunately tomorro...

Thanks as always Russ! That's a great point you make about the Baby Taylor - I just accepted the construction because of their name! I'll have a look at Shine and Crafter. All the best, Roger PS Just wondering if you ever make your way across to the Southsea Folk and Roots Festival in August?

Personally I thought he was a pain in the .....! I'm sure that his ego came into it to a certain extent and like so many people in life he's a great talker,but doesn't want to or can't listen. As my Partner Em said, most blokes would love to have some lessons from a talented guitarist and good teach...

Reposted Question for Russ

Hi Russ, I tried to post this question last night at about 10pm, but it never appeared, so here goes again!! I'm thinking about buying myself a steel string acoustic in the near future. I prefer a smaller-bodied guitar, it needs to be available as a "leftie" and some sort of P/U would be n...

Play It Again: Bill Oddie grapples with the electric guitar

Just wondering if anyone watched this program tonight on BBC1. I found it really interesting, particularly when Mr Oddie "sacked" his teacher, Bridget Mermikides!

Hi Russ,

Looks very much like a Shergold neck to me, but I'm not sure about the body. Is it some sort of hybrid??

All the best,

Great British Beer Festival, Earls Court

Gordon, Just seen the confirmation that you're playing at the GBBF, which is great news indeed - I think it's time to book a days holiday in August! Finding this out now is great for me, as I have to go into hospital on Monday for a short stay and it's something I'm not looking forward to. The thoug...

St. George's Day.....

......is a day that should be celebrated by us English, particularly as it's my Father's Birthday (he's 81 this year)! After all, during the 15th century it was on a par with Xmas and hopefully one day St.George's Day will be recognised again on a level akin to those national days celebrated by our ...
