Oh hello Richard, I just wanted to ask you......................

If you were not a musician, in what other direction would you want your creativity to go?

How odd! Just posted a reply today (08 April), but it's come up on the forum as 01 April. Spooky - maybe I should be the new Dr Who assistant?

That was happening last night as well, part of the buggy problems - it does mean that your post is now at the top of this thread.

Good point Richard. When I first picked up the guitar I had no idea how complex an instrument it really is. I read a book about the inner workings of a guitar a few years ago and it really helped me appreciate it a great deal more.
On a personal level though, without music I honestly don't know what I would do to fill that gap. I would probably have sociability and personality problems.

Oh ....lovely...............and what about a ship's figurehead,there are some incredible ones on the Isles of Scilly.
There is a little museum,it's outside actually in the grounds of the Abbey ,there are about 10 figureheads all found in the waters off the islands.
They are beautiful.........all carved individually ......its really atmospheric there........particularly as it starts to get dark.

i have been i share your vibe.all things to do with ships i love,you should see the vasa in stockholm if you can i stood in total silence for an hour in awe




its a 17th century galleon perfectly preserved cos the baltic sea has a low salinity ratio so they don't have the wood destroying toreno worm in that sea it sank on its maiden voyage and was dredged up in the 60's.....beautiful

Maybe you should consider a gig in my lovely home town of Portsmouth? HMS Victory, the Mary Rose, enough war memorials to elicit tears that would fill an ocean .... and the Gosport ferry :roll: ... the old sea forts ... The Solent, the Isle of Wight, Portsdown Hill and an amazing sea vista ...

.... have I convinced you yet?

... i no longer live there which I'm sure makes any decision easier :*:
