Music includes opera too...

Opera tends to generate a wide range of extreme conflicting opinions.... but I'm going out on a limb to 'put the case for the defense' so to speak.... I've been so fortunate to be, by osmosis, or to make myself exposed to a wide range of music and the arts over the last 50 years or so.... You will k...

Musical tastes are personal and varied

As the French say ... one man's meat is another man's poisson... ((sorry - a lifelong Ken Dodd humour man.... !!!)) My wife and I have eclectic tastes ..... I've recently introduced her to Gordon's music, which she loves.. and we are fortunate to be going to his Chepstow concert in late April while ...

Re: Anyone with an interest in travel keen on exchanging experiences/ideas etc etc ??? A keen on discussing travel ???

Sue... thanks for the headsup on googlephotos replacing Picasa..... As mine is already setup and we don't have any interest in expanding our tech kit (we have one basic mobile, we don't need or use phone or other apps), and it works very well for me, I'm sticking with Picasa..... For anyone else int...

Re: Sir Ken Dodd

I read about this by chance yesterday online.... 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...

Hi..... encouraging to get some interest on this line of discussion.... Like Paul, during my first marriage I had no kids... Like any situation - some advantages and disadvantages - but allowed me to pursue my many musical and performing interests and to do some travelling albeit mainly Europe. It w...

Re: The rationale behind 'Peace will fall' album

Gordon.. a PS..... Just to say that re "Peace will fall"..... being religious and being spiritual are not necessarily the same thing..... I think we know the difference !!!. Re your recent hearing loss.... can totally sympathise in the degree to which it impacts on ones love and playing/li...

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....... ????!!!

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...
