Hi
Just to say many thanks for the concert yesterday at Aston On Trent . We both really enjoyed your performance and found your introductions amusing and informative . We hope that the wait for the raffle before your encore enabled you to psyc your self up, although the audiance though that you had gone for a tripple pickled onion!

On an Anorack level - where can I get a Tab of Heartsong ? I have a copy of the encounters of the finger style kind but its not featured .

Thanks again We look forward to seeing you perform again

Mike and Monique

Hello Both.

SO glad you enjoyed last night, Hilary and I plus our pals had a great time, really freiendly and welcoming from all involved.

With regard to the TAB for Heartsong, you will be pleased to know that we are bringing out a book before the end of the year that will contain pretty much all of those early GG compositions. Hope you can wait intil then Mike?

In the meantime here is a taster of how it's constructed.DGDGBD is the tuning and I place a capo at the 2nd fret. In order to get the power strumming, I use a light and flexable pick with a down down up down up pattern. Start slow and then build up to speed whilst thinking of Ravel's Bolero as your template.

Have fun, and my best to you Both.
