Re: Sir Ken Dodd

I can't say how sad I am to hear he had passed away.... he was still planning many touring dates.... as he always did.... living for work and living for his audiences.... The man was and always, especially compared with today's generation of so-called...

The rationale behind 'Peace will fall' album

Gordon... very interested in your comments on this recent release album..... and the influences behind it.... particularly as it contains a number of re-worked pieces, now with a Christian theme.... I guess musicians can have a problem with giving their music a religious/Christian perspective... it'...

Re: Jamie Giltrap RIP

Any loss of friends, family and colleagues is painful. We have all experienced these on many levels, but fortunately I have nor will ever have, an experience of losing a child... and certainly not one so young and in his prime. If words of support from contributers to this website can help at this s...

Re: Culling old vinyls can be an emotional experience

Yeah.... can't it just....... ????!!! Unfortunately my enforced vinyl albums/singles cull came at the expense of a very traumatic domestic time back in 2004...... as part of a general extensive enforced life change... over the ensuing years, ignored vinyl and slowly rebuilt my 'favs' collection with...

Fylde guitar nostalgia

Gordon.... Hi.... can I take you back to late 1960's.. ??? Yesterday saw a mention of Fylde guitars and it took me back... In late 1960's you played accoustic support on the debut album of a then up and coming Christian singer/guitarist Graham Kendrick. I remember then he had just bought a Fylde gui...

Re: Does anyone have the guitar tab for GG's 'The Carnival'?

Re guitar tab for 'Carnival'...... as Gordon said, it's a multi instrumental piece so no specific guitar 'tab'. Had a listen with my guitar the other day - easy to work thru the chord progression - and find the key (thru the bass note...)...... E major ...... chords sequence.... E... A.... B7... E (...

Re: GOOD BUDGET GUITARS - sub £100 - let's not overlook them

Most of the posts seem to relate to budget electric guitars being good value. Not being an electric ma, can't comment but it seems to me more difficult to get a good sounding/playing accoustic guitar for that price. See my previous article re nylon strung accoustic guitars... for value for a classic...

Re: Nylon strung guitars

Back in the late 1960's when I first starting playing and singing, one of my mates had an accoustic guitar with a massive body - can't remember the name - but with nylon strings.... It was obviously a steel-strung instrument - it had a narrow non-classical guitar neck. Have not seen such an instumen...

John Mayall concert in Norwich

Always had a wide musical interest , in many different genres, more specific pieces of music or songs rather than favouring one style or artist. Had never attended a complete concert of blues music so went out on a limb, on the basis of his reputation, to see John Myall and his band. Having attended...
