Re: Sumbro PS1

Hi Andrew, Thanks for the reply. I went with Daddario EJ45 Pro Arte. They happened to have 20% off on the day I bought them but they still nearly cost as much as the guitar!! They took a while to settle but it holds tune quite well now. The action is still high but I still find myself playing it qui...

Re: Sumbro PS1

Hi All, Firstly, and most importantly, may I give my very best wishes to Gordon. I was very shocked and saddened to hear his recent news. It was great to read Gordon's positive words on what has happened and am sure this can only help on his road to being back on the road. Perhaps a song in there so...

Re: Sumbro PS1

Hi, You said keep your eyes open and I did :D . I found one on ebay nearly 5 years later for £9.99 and won!!!!!!! I have not got it yet but will do shortly. This will be my first classical guitar. I will do a clean up, give it some TLC and then fit some new strings. What do you recommend? http://www...

Re: Electric Guitar on Ravens and Lullabies

Thanks for the reply Gordon,

I have a JM4 looper and switch, via a lehle AB Y switcher, to either an acoustic or marshall amp, love it. Really interested to see what patches you used. Great than you can also stick a bass guitar and mic into too :D

Re: Electric Guitar on Ravens and Lullabies

Hi Gordon,

When you say Line 6 JM 4 do you mean the looper. If so it would be great to know which patches you used?

Thanks in advance Richard

Re: Bed for road crew person Malc Welch.

Hi Gordon,

I would happily do this if it were in Newcastle, add a date nearby and there is a bed for the night. Last time I saw you was a fantastic night at Alnwick Playhouse :)

I hope there is room at the Inn somewhere!!!!

Kind Regards, Richard

Re: Buying advice

Hi Daniel,

Great playing, I can hear the GG influence in Summer Holiday. Only just got the CD with it on, very good stuff.

Just need the beard and you will have off to a t :D

To get such praise from GG is great, I would go for the busking and start up a fund for the harp guitar.

Re: Practice, is RGT the answer

Gordon, Thanks for the tips, but not being a virtuoso guitarist like your good self means that the cupboards are bare for me. I like the idea of playing with the electric unplugged whilst watching the TV, I suspect my wife would like me to do this all of the time! To think you thought it scary to pl...

Practice, is RGT the answer

Gordon My practice often always reverts to playing what I know, not good I hear you cry! :cry: It has been suggested to me that I take lessons. This got me thinking and I thought that something based around an exam at the end might concentrate my practice. I see that you are listed as an RGT patron....
