That is an interesting site Doug. I was able to find out about my Italian made Melody 1200 12 string who also made guitars for EKO.

Graham can you post a picture as I am very curious as to whether there are any similarities to my 12er?

Great to hear from you Trevor and welcome to the forum.

Whilst I have never owned a Gibson I believe with any guitar, no matter what the make, you must hold her and play her and you will know whether she is right for you.
Sorry to hear about your diagnosis but I will reiterate what others have said to be positive (which you appear to be anyway) because we never know what is round the corner and I know several people who have proved their doctors diagnosis wrong.

Hi Richard, nice to meet you. I am a bit up to the neck in it at present but I will look at your music later. (I might even listen too smile).
Your earlier comment has intrigued me; does standing on your head all the time mean that you have to do a handstand when you wish to use the loo? lol lol lol
Enjoy Chordie,

Roger

If you click on 'MY SONGBOOK' in the blue header band at the top of the page beside the name of your current songbook is a blue box that says 'Add Book'. Click on this and you have a new empty songbook that you can name and use.

I saw a message on Facebook that Jeff (Topdown) is back home with no damage done to it. Also Toney (SouthPaw41L) and his family is safe and sound. I hope all other Chordians are safe too.

I think on similar lines. A guy locally does a Rod Stewart tribute act and several people have told me he is pretty good, my reply is if I wish to hear Rod Stewart I will listen to the real thing not an imitation. Another person I know (who hales from Yorkshire and is a top notch guitarist) thinks that he should sing with an American accent and it grates every time I hear him.

I have the greatest admiration for people that will sing a song in their own natural voice.

Oh Bill you crack me up, love the story and very pleased that the nursing staff thought you had behaved yourself well enough to deserve a lollipop. lol lol lol

But seriously, you must be more careful, falling with a cymbal under your arm could result could result in a nasty cut to the armpit. So, please take some advise from one who has had experience in these things. Don't drink the whiskey until after you have moved the gear. wink lol wink lol wink lol

Hi Oldbikes and welcome to Chordie, you will find an very friendly bunch of people here so, any queries you have, just ask away. I have always said that the only silly question is the one you do not ask, so don't be shy.

Roger

Obviously I use my given name but after checking on the internet I could only find 4 other people with the name Roger Guppy and no one with my my full handle of Roger Clive Guppy and I like to be different. So I use my real name wherever I can and this will hopefully stop me being confused with anyone else. lol

I am so please I am still only 28 and don't suffer these horrifying injuries you oldies have been having. lol

Seriously, I hope these injuries are soon mended and you are back to your sprightly selves.

Roger

I use 'Band-In-A-Box' to create backing tracks. Simply write in the chord sequence, select the style and tempo and 'Bob's your Uncle' you have a track. You can change the instruments or remove them completely.
For the small band I am rehearsing with I record a full track complete with vocals for when they practice alone, but when together I use just a drum and bass track (we have neither a drummer or bass player) so the true sound that we make can be heard.
