Re: For No One

Very good, Graham ... you're in fine voice. I'd never heard the original song. I noticed you play an "A" chord like I do, with 2 fingers. Easier than trying to cram 3 in there.

ACOUSTICS:  Cordoba D10-CE / LaPatrie "Concert" / Takamine GD30CE-12 / Norman ST30
ELECTRICS:  EP Les Paul Custom Pro / Gretsch Streamliner G2420T
AMPS:  Traynor YCS50 / Peavey VK212 / Traynor AM150T
EFFECTS: Boss ME-80 Multi-effects / Ibanez WD7 wah

Re: For No One

The  original  is  excellent and  the  meaning  still applies today. Re the  A chord  I'm a  lazy  player I try  to  make  it  easy for my  self .LOL

Very nice one Graham !  Pretty cool song - I had never heard of that song or band  before. Thanks for sharing and enlightening.

Re: For No One

Good one Graham. Looking at your pickup on the sound hole and it looks like my Dean Markley is it one also?

Excellent sound Graham.

I have finally found happiness in my life.  Guitars, singing, beer and camping.  And they all intertwine wonderfully.

NICE JOB!!

Art and beauty are in the eyes of the beholder.
What constitutes excellent music is in the ears of the listener.

Re: For No One

Re: For No One

Re: For No One

Re: For No One

Never heard that one before. Your usual excellent standard Graham.

Re: For No One

Thanks for the comment K.I might addit into my boxing day set at the village pub ,unless I can find an Rc 3 looper then Ill play the whole set electric .Its difficult to know what acoustic songs to include to pad out a  50 min electric set to two hours ,my current looper only holds 11 tracks ,so that plus the 3 in my trio only gives14 and its not enough.
