Re: Found this on YouTube!!

Hi Brad, I do understand your description of Liverpool, what a centre of creativity, and has been for many decades. It may have been similar to some of my later experiences in East London, when I left Kent in 84. Every other pal played, or was in something or was into music of one kind or another. T...

Re: Found this on YouTube!!

Hi Brad, Thanks for the reply, Gordon taught me at school a lifetime ago in Kent. I was looking for something from the first (And only time) I saw him live, in Dartford, The Orchard I believe, 1982/3… No I Phones and recordings on mobiles. So I found nothing from then but this amazing performance ab...

Found this on YouTube!!

Hi all, Hope you's are all ok and safe. I just stumbled on this a while ago when I was looking for something else by Gordon. Just different class with Rick Wakeman. This is from a level not many can understand. I don't at all, apart from the fact that it is something I have never heard before. I hea...

Re: Music includes opera too...

Music is music, it transcends what we think. Opera is shite, or great, music must have value to the listener.. In Italia 1990 we all heard Nessun Dorma, which means "No person sleeps" if my Italian is correct. But that doesn't matter, but what is important is what it means to you as a piec...

Isn't music so wonderful and diversel!!

In these strange times, with lockdown and other restrictions, music gives us so much... I am listening to these two tracks and playing along!! Music is such a gift!!! Sex Pistols and Mica Paris, What a mixture.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CzSjp5A-Bzc https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zMG4n7wwzFA ...

Re: 12 string guitars

Hi all, Been reading this with interest. I have an Ovation 6 and a Fender Strat, and since lockdown, I have been looking for the 12 string I saw Gordon play in Dartford in 83-84, that I thought I could never afford.. Or something similar. Gonna show my ignorance here with a naive question!! Due to m...

Re: Recently started to play the guitar

Hi Tom, How are things going now? As was mentioned, just muck about with the basic shapes of A Am C D E Em and get to know what they sound like... Then quickly (Took me ages) you will find them all over the fretboard, try to learn what is where. This helped me immensely. Loads of good stuff on YouT...

Screaming Strat

Hi all, Hope you’s are all safe and well. I recently bought a Mexican manufactured Strat off an auction site. Action is good, the whammy bar does not put it out of tune. I only paid a hundred for it as there is something not quite right with the toggle switch. From the neck end the first four positi...

Re: Ovation Celebrity

Hi Brad, Thanks for the reply. I believe that Celebrities have a high action from the factory as it is easier to avoid fret buzz on what is essentially a mass produced guitar, could be wrong, anyway, when I lowered the bridge on both, I put the neck(s) onto a jig I made at work to keep them from mov...

Re: Finding a good guitar tutor?

What are you looking for exactly ? Do you just want to learn to play songs you like, or all the theory ?What didn’t work with the tutors you had before? I have been playing since 1983 and I am just about reasonable, Pub Covers Band level. I have very little natural talent and cannot compose. I had l...
