Hi everyone
Hope you all don`t mind but i am feeling quite pleased with myself and wanted to share it with people who probably understand how i am feeling , been playing now for about 10 months and coming along not too bad , but have always struggled with being able to sing along while playing , was on the verge of giving up trying when it just seems to have all come together on the songs i am learning , i suppose its because of practising playing the songs to the point of not really thinking too much about it ,you can put more effort into learning the vocals , although my singing voice is not brilliant it just seems to add a new dimension to the song ,  Well sorry about droning on but hope you all know what i mean . thanks

I remember seeing the stones in their heyday and it cost me around £1 50p , excuse my ignorance but i guess this is about just under $2 , if the price of tickets has gone up 350% how come my wages haven`t gone up to match !!

I am hoping that the new CD is going to be KICK BUTT.  I have always been a Sabbath fan. Ozzy days most, but I love the DIO era and have Dehumanizer with Dio also.

Ozzy is actually looking pretty good these days.  I think you have done the right thing, I dont konw if I will be able to see them here in the states, but at least I have seen Ozzy live.  What a great showman!

So for thoes of us who can not be there rock a little for us too! \m/ \m/

Yep will definitely be rocking !!! hope that they get over to the states for you . Never got into the Dio era sabbath mainly because i thought the first 5 albums with ozzy would never be bettered ,am looking forward to the new album have heard a couple of snippets and sounds quite promising

i'm not going, just wanted to say that it's a bit sad when you have to pay top dollar to see a home town band. enjoy all the same, wish i could come.


Yep when i saw the price of tickets i said i wouldn`t pay that much but the last time i saw them was about 1974ish , and they are my all time favourite  band , and as we are all getting older the chance might not come around again !! but it is not nice the way these bands are charging top money nowadays , i doubt its that they need the money !!

Hi guys
Had my first go at restringing my acoustic yesterday , all was going well until i decided to have a seat while i was doing it , went to stretch to reach tuners , obviously overstretched , chair started to slip next thing ended up in a heap on the floor !!  Luckily no damage done to me or guitar ! but guitar sounds much better now !!

Hi everyone I am new to guitar playing and new to this forum so thought i would just say hi . I have been trying to learn guitar for about 8 months now and am quite pleased with the progress i have made, the one area i still find a struggle is what pick to use i have tried plastic and nylon ones thick and thin ones but they all seem to slide about in my fingers when playing , i seem to get on better with the thin ones but not too sure i like the sound i get , any tips would be appreciated.  Thanks
