I`ve got a roland cube 80  brilliant for rockabilly slap

great versatile amp  i`ve had it for 2 yrs still finding new settings eg swamp rock/ mersey beat/ surf/metal stack ect ect ect

Good on her she`s really getting into it.
i don`t knock anyones music cause it`s all better than me.
the exception to this is, if the person is getting paid then i think i can make a critique

New years resolution is to try to learn to sing!
I enjoy playing guitar But my singing is terrible.
i don`t want to be great, just not bad.
Is learning to singalong  in tune very hard?

last night i saw The Moody Blues in concert.
I noticed Justin Hayward  playing guitar with his thumb over the top( on the bass strings.)
What`s that about??

sounds like Indesisive would be a good name

The searchers are still going  they must be the hardest working band in the world .playing several times a week.50 weeks a year!

Can any other band claim this?

if you are going to do live work  ` Sound & Vision`

If ya want something short        `Rustic`

Or something laid back              `Cloudy Bay`

If ya do some beatles stuff        `Lemon & Mccarthy`

oh this is easy

try john lennon or paul mccartney. sometimes this works for me.

How about I`m a tiger   by Lu Lu     hit in the 60`s

don`t think she does this one any more!


We where talking the other day about hits that have made singers rich,that had very little
going for it. eg very few words or chords  or the same one repeated.
some times they work really well though
can you think of any?

Check out  Rolf Harris   I know stairway to heaven is on utube  but he has covered lots of classic hits.
real good humour   check him out playing the wobble board

jake the peg has got to be the most clever song ever!

UK  home of political correctness  i wonder if this has anything to do with the problems there?


I was thinking of buying a Martin guitar (very expensive in NZ).but decided i could live
without it at the moment due to recession/ economic climate.
Which got me wondering how other people around the world are getting on in these
interesting times?
Have you been effected in any way?

Gidday,i`ve been thinking about trying some alternate tunings.
I don`t know anything about it,when retuned are the chord shapes the same as standard tunings
or are they different shapes.

Always tune your guitar,  even a strum of open strings will give u a thrill.
