Re: Dodo's Dream

Andrew,

Yes it was very kind of Gordon to give us a mention, particularly as he had quite a few family members there. All in all it was a great weekend which will stay in my memory for a long time :D

Re: Revelation

While it's great that the BBC audio from the concerts is still available, it's such a crying shame that the TV footage no longer exists :( :cry: It's probably the same for the FOD videos - I remember watching Gordon with his SG2000 on of all places "Tiswas", which was the start of my admir...

Re: Wojtek the Soldier Bear

Piotr, What a fantastic story about Wojtek and of course your timing has been spot on to help us remember and honour our relatives who lived and fought during WW II - my Uncle was in the RAF and was sadly killed during active service in Singapore (the irony was that he survived the Battle of Britain...

Re: Dodo's Dream

Forgive me for being a bit smug, but then I think this has turned out to be a great thread :D The fact that we all love different versions of Dodo speaks volumes of what it's all about :D Bob - yes you are the lucky one! Steve - we saw Gordon perform Sallie's Song at Fareham a few years ago on the J...

Hi Spot Guitars

Saw one of these yesterday in a charity shop for £5. We've got loads of other things going on at the moment so I didn't buy it, but then did a little bit of research when we got home. Apparently they are made by Egmond and one or two have gone on ebay for quite a bit more than this. Also it appears ...

Re: Question for Gordon re Vintage Travel Guitar

Hi Andrew Thanks for that my friend :D My shoulder is a lot better these days and I'm enjoying playing both the Vintage and my "project" tele. At some stage I'll get around to having a p/u put on the Vintage so that I can use a few effects! If you PM me with an e-mail address we can make s...

Re: Quest - a quick summer poll

Hi G

I just have a very simple statement to make and that is that the world is a much better place because of your music. Nuff said I think.

Re: Matthew Halsall

Hi John! Thanks for the information :D Most of the music that I enjoy is guitar-based, or ambient such as Brian Eno or Tomas Dvorak. By accident I came across Halsall playing a piece of music on Radio 3 - just him on trumpet (not normally my favourite instrument!) and someone (Taz Modi?) on piano. I...

Matthew Halsall

Is anyone familiar with the music of the Manchester based trumpeter, composer, arranger and band-leader Matthew Halsall? I've read that he's one of the rising stars of the UK jazz scene and I can believe it after listening to his new album, "Into Forever" - well worth a listen :D PS I came...

Question for Gordon re Vintage Travel Guitar

Hi Gordon, Well two years on and I'm still very happy with my JHS Vintage travel guitar - thanks again for advising me to buy one :D Since I've had the guitar I've tried several string gauges and found it to be very versatile. I now have Martin 10s fitted and the question is how high due you think I...

Dodo's Dream

Well I'm following in the footsteps of our good friend Piotr by asking this question - which is your favourite version of Dodo? I'll start the ball rolling - mine is the first one played by Gordon when he started playing electric guitar on stage again, which was a dream come true for me :D . Beech V...

Re: Guitar Workshop in Buxton

Andrew,

Like Roger USA I think I made the right decision not to attend based on my guitar playing ability, but sounds like a great weekend in every respect my friend - thanks for the posting :D

Re: Announcement Sept 2015

From Bill Nelson:

"That's a worry. Gordon is a fine guitarist and, by all accounts, a very nice guy too. I'm so sorry to hear of his illness and wish him the very best in dealing with it".
