  1. "Titanic success"...

    01 April 2017 - 09:17 AM

    Whatever our individual views may be on this subject can we please keep this a completely apolitical, non-partisan post? After all; there are digs at all the leading characters involved.
    Thanks in advance.

    Whether one voted for Brexit or not there should be something in this little clip which you find to be rather amusing...

    Last week Riffster posted a thread on the arrival of his new strap from Heistercamp in the UK. I was so impressed both by his review and the look of their products that I ordered one of their straps to replace one of mine which was falling apart. It arrived half-an-hour ago - eight days after the order was placed which is a pretty fast considering each strap is tailor-made.

    I haven't really used it for more than a few minutes and I have yet to swap-over the straplocks but here are a couple of quick snaps anyhow;

    Contents of pack. Leather coaster; a pair of rubber strap-rings; a pair of picks; a nice letter(!); the strap wrapped for protection and the canvas drawstring-bag;

    I have to say my thoughts echo Riffster's from last week; The quality is top-notch and the strap is absolutely GORGEOUS in the flesh.
    They offer a range of strap lengths and a variety of options as regards colours, fittings and even what type of strap-holes the player wants.
    This is the 'Apache' strap from their 'Raw' range; 2 1/2" wide in the colour they call 'Borage' (a sort of slightly faded blue-denim hue) with 'Ochre' stitching and D-shaped buckle in 'Antique Silver' finish.

    £44 inc. p+p in the UK.

    I'm a Very Happy Bunny!

  3. "Coming Home"

    There was a lovely exchange of thoughts / sentiments in ksd's "Wouldn't it be funny..." thread which went as follows;

    This little everyone a warm fuzzy. It is very much the musical equivalent of a toasted cheese sandwich and a bowl of tomato soup made with milk....

    Everybody has that. Mine is my Tele. Yours is something else, and so on....

    Much as I love my #1 LP (and I REALLY love my #1 LP) I find that there is still something inexplicably and infinitely comforting when I pick up my current Strat.
    It's just a low-level MIM '60s Classic Series (Lake Placid Blue, Rosewood 'board, mint green 'guard, 6-screw trem-bridge) thing but it is so unbelievably identical to the 1964 Strat I bought in 1980 and played for the next 24 years that when I pick it up it's like I'm putting on a pair of broken-in sheepskin-lined slippers.

    It really is like "Coming Home".

    What guitar(s) give you this sort of 'warm fuzzy' whereby you simply know each other so very well it's like you've never been apart?


    ..and I have a good(-ish) excuse for posting this...
  4. Talking about Great Tone...

    26 January 2017 - 05:01 AM

    Rather interesting interview with JB where he discusses some of the stylistic nuances of the British Blues Boom boys.
    Clapton, Beck, Page, Green and Kossoff are the major points of discussion.
    The 'Beano' gets sorted-out from around 20:00. In fact from this point on IMO the interview really starts to get fascinating. The bit from 22:10, talking about technique is particularly insightful!
    Kossoff fans are in for a little treat from around the 26:00 mark.

    It's quite long but, being a bit of a fan of this style of blues, I found it very informative. And rather amusing in places!

    The posts I have made in the last few days seem to have been deleted and my posting history in the 'Profile' page has been wiped.
    Most odd. I don't think I wrote anything inflammatory....
