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...
