Re: David Gilmour in Wroclaw, Poland

Hi Piotr!

Sounds great :D

Was Phil Manzanera (Roxy Music) part of the Gilmour band?

Best to you both,

Re: Vintage launches Gordon Giltrap D-Day Mandolin

I was disappointed that I couldn't get to the annual service at the D-Day Memorial in Southsea on Monday. In fact I was beginning to feel that the anniversary of such a significant event had been a tad overlooked this year. Bearing that in mind, and also what Gordon and Hilary have been through rece...

Re: Simon and Patrick 12 String

Dave,

Sounds as if the Norman 12 string has been put under too much stress (tuned to concert pitch with heavy gauge strings over a long period?), which has resulted in what you have seen.

Good luck with your new guitar :D

Re: My birthday coming up!

Hi Tom! Hope you have a good time on Saturday, which is of course St George's day. It's a special day for us too, as my Dad celebrates his 90th Birthday and his last surviving brother is 87. You probably already know that the 23rd is William Shakespeare's Birthday too. Looks like your in good compan...

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...
