Well done!!

For my CGE 'O' level woodwork project in 1966 I designed and made an acoustic guitar. I bought the tuning heads, a tailstock and the fretwire then spent hours in the library trying to find out how to calculate the fret spacing (there was no Google to consult back then lol). Unfortunately I could not get a thin enough timber for the body and had to use a veneered plywood. The result was that the sound was a little dead but I then fitted a pick up and it sounded fine. I was particularly pleased that the intonation was spot on and I gigged with it in my band several times. I eventually gave it to my brother - wish I had kept it. sad

So pleased daddy and daughter have reconciled. May you have many happy years together now.

Roger

There are two listings for this band/artiste one with 6 songs and one with 122 but as you point out both show a blank sheet when you open them. I have written to the site owner to see if I can find an answer for you.

Take care,

Roger

Thank  you for pointing this out. I had not noticed as I rarely print out as song and, as I remember, the chord grids could be at the side of the song, at the bottom of the page or not at all. I have written to Per, the site owner, and suggested that he re-introduce this feature when he can.

Take care,

Roger

My opening song is very often 'Can't Help Falling In Love'. A couple of years ago when in the UK I visited a girl I have known for over 50 years and met her husband, Clive, for the first time. During the conversation I mentioned that I had bought a 12 string and Clive, having never seen one, wished to look at it so I fetched it from my car and, after looking at it, he asked me to play something. So I broke into 'Can't Help Falling In Love'. Half way through I glanced at Clive and he was sobbing his socks off, I did not realise that my playing and singing was that bad.... lol

It turned out that this song had a very special significance for him and I caught him unawares. I quickly broke into another favourite of mine (that very few people have heard of) the Silkie's 'Blood Red River'.

Apart from the fact you are going to be on very unstable craft on that unbreathable wet stuff smile it sounds like an absolute blast. I am sure you will have a great time.

I am so sorry for you loss, as if you have not been through enough recently, to lose a child is absolutely tragic. My heart goes out to both you and Dondra, thoughts and prayers are with you. Just wish I was closer to be able to offer some physical support. Bless you both.

Open the songbook containing the one you wish to delete. There is a light grey box to the left of the song title, tick the one (or ones) that are to be deleted, then click on the delete button (the dustbin symbol in the middle of the page alongside the Songbook name) and Hey Presto, job done.

Happy Birthday Jeff (that is topdown Jeff).

May your strings never break and always stay in tune. More importantly, may Georgia always live next door lol.

What rolling ads at the bottom??? I see very few ads, apart from on the home page, so I can only suggest you clear out the cookies and get an ad blocker.

Welcome to Chordie, I have moved your thread to the correct section.

As Doug has pointed out the 'closed' topics are the 'Stickies'. These are guidelines or help with certain operations and are not for discussion, hence they are closed, and a 'Sticky' it is always at the start at the section so it is easy to find. If you wish to mention something about these then simply start a new topic and refer to the relevant 'Sticky' in your comments.

Most of the 'Stickies' are the result of earlier discussions, so you can always use the 'search' feature to seek out previous discussions regarding a certain subject and add comments there.

Hoping all went well and the results were good.

Another way is to point your mouse at the end of the red play bar and click and hold the left mouse button. A red circle will appear that you can drag back to the start to replay the video.

As long as the Songbook has been published and made 'Public' (by clicking on the world icon in a blue box, far right) anyone should be able to see the Songbook as it has been edited by the Member. Although I can follow the link and see the Songbook I cannot find it by searching the published Songbooks so I suspect it has not been published.

I have just checked, it is 5 weeks since he was last here and it is not like him to go so long without comment, so I have sent him an e-mail. I will let you know when he replies.

I am all behind this month but I have just managed to record Country Roads, sadly I will not get Amie done. Finger picked Nashville guitar and strummed baritone ukulele played by me, bass and drums courtesy of Band-in-a-Box. After 3 hours of unsuccessful attempts to upload to Soundcloud I have had to use Youtube:
