Great British Beer Festival, Earls Court

Gordon, Just seen the confirmation that you're playing at the GBBF, which is great news indeed - I think it's time to book a days holiday in August! Finding this out now is great for me, as I have to go into hospital on Monday for a short stay and it's something I'm not looking forward to. The thoug...

St. George's Day.....

......is a day that should be celebrated by us English, particularly as it's my Father's Birthday (he's 81 this year)! After all, during the 15th century it was on a par with Xmas and hopefully one day St.George's Day will be recognised again on a level akin to those national days celebrated by our ...

Thanks Gordon! Jackson's story is certainly a very sad one and it's also unfortunate the Davey Graham appears to have fallen on hard times. Bert seems to be OK though and comes across as a "good bloke" (thanks again for introducing me to his music). As you mention the late 60s/early 70s, I...

"Guitar Man" by Will Hodgkinson

What a great book this is about learning to play the guitar - I can't put it down! The author is privileged indeed to have met and got some tips from some of the greats, in particular Bert Jansch and Davey Graham. Bert states that his favourite player of all time is Jackson C. Frank. Is anyone famil...

GG Guitar collection

Gordon, After seeing your 12-string for sale on ebay and the other guitars you have advertised at The Music Store, I'm just wondering how you decide when the time has come to say goodbye to a particular guitar. Is it a question of how often a guitar is used, storage space, making way for new additio...

Russ,

You were really the "guru" on the old guitar forum and I think your expert opinion is essential if the new guitar forum is to be as interesting and useful as the old one. PLEASE DON'T GIVE UP!!

All the best,

Roger

Tools of the Trade Webpage?

Sue, Congratulations on the new site. I particularly like the homepage, especially as Gordon is holding an electric guitar (the Farida I think!) I'm just wondering if you have any plans to have a Tools of the Trade (or equivalent) page on the new site. Over the past few months I've found it to be a ...
