Re: How to string a Norman B20?

Hi Dave I have the same strings on my Vintage LH-VTG100N travel guitar and I like them - good price, feel good and sound great too :D I tried quite a few different makes and gauges for this guitar before arriving at the Martins. I've never owned a 12 string and I don't know much about the Norman B20...

Reflective Mood..................

.........must be in one tonight, as I'm playing a loop of "Under This Blue Sky", "Answered Prayers" by David Sylvian/Bill Nelson, "On Camber Sands" and "By The Wall" by Tomas Dvorak. Think those tunes all go pretty well together!

Re: Recent acquisition

Andrew, You are indeed a lucky fellow - a great looking guitar with so much GG history. Bet it sounds great too! My recent purchases have been far more modest - a Puretone soprano ukelele which I got from a charity shop for £1.50, and more recently an elctroacoustic ukelele : http://www.amazon.co.uk...

Re: 40th anniversary of the Visionary

Visionary, PJ and FoTD are all remarkable albums in my opinion and stand shoulder to shoulder with anything else recorded in the 70s or any other time for that matter. Whether the music is stripped down to the basics ie Gordon alone on an acoustic guitar, or given the full band treatment, the compo...

Re: St. George's Day!

Hi Tom - you're in good company then! William Shakespeare was born and died on the 23rd, while my Dad (90 this year) and his last surviving brother also have their Birthdays on this date! On a sad note note the 23rd is the anniversary of the passing of Ian Nelson (Red Noise), brother of the great Bi...

Re: Dodo's Dream

Andrew,

Yes it was very kind of Gordon to give us a mention, particularly as he had quite a few family members there. All in all it was a great weekend which will stay in my memory for a long time :D

Re: Revelation

While it's great that the BBC audio from the concerts is still available, it's such a crying shame that the TV footage no longer exists :( :cry: It's probably the same for the FOD videos - I remember watching Gordon with his SG2000 on of all places "Tiswas", which was the start of my admir...
