Aye the guitars a great pick-me-up time flies past. Agree with your posted comment that the 7TH have the Dr Feelgood thing and their singer moves about stage just like Lee Brillo...really nailed it playing Milk and Alcohol on the tube...fantastic. I think that was a fretless Bass guitar on that set..not sure.Just waiting on Dan taking off but the wee tent stage only let him do two steps.. forward and back. Well I can learn watching these tube clips. Gonna download all of the 7TH clipa along with yours. These guys are better than some of the dead pan acts at those big festivals.
Thanks for the compliment - yes that is a fretless bass, how he plays it I have no idea, he is a brilliant player though. This festival 'Dalmallyfest' is a really good home grown festival that has been going for years, really friendly and with lots of good quality acts - although we never play our best, usually due to the amount of beer consumed ;-) I came on Dr Feelgood quite late fantastic band Wilco is unique. Les Paul is to heavy to do all that Wilco jumping around - well that's my excuse anyhow..
Robbie, the Steve Earl song at the Brown Cow is is quality as well - it was in the links on you tube for Need you love - you should post that up, shows you can do a range of styles.
Peter Green - what a talent. I discovered him once i started playing. I love his real blusey style. "Man of the World" and "Black Magic Woman" (no...Santana did not write it) are fantastic tunes. I have been told that the album with John Mayall (after Clapton left) is the one to get. He was at his peak then.
I learn and practice alot from DVDs now. They can be really useful if something is missing in the TAB and you dont yet read music. I have ones from "LickLibrary" and they are very good (don't buy ones by Jamie Humphreys...he talks forever about nothing and its bloody annoying). I doubt you need them Dan but there are ones on technique as well.
I have one on Learning to play in the 'style' of Clapton' and Peter Green - so its just licks, ideas and phrasing rather than songs. Last week I got a GnR one and its cool as F***.
I will also admit to liking Ritchie Sambora's style - a very acomplished guitarist with a complex blues, country, rock style. It's all there. I know most think he is simply in a big-haired girly rock band - but trust me, Ritchie has the chops...
Hi again Ophiel,Q?...How do I go about putting a photo on this page like the rest of you. Have you any clips of yourself playing on youtube.I tried one of your links and couldnt access it.Peter Green was on TV few weeks back talking about the old days.BBC4 shows a lot of the old bands and some of the old Grey Whistle Test stuff.Got hold of an old Free Live at the BBC CD. Great track on that "Dont Say You Love me" The guitar at the end is magic.
The Peter Green Lemon Drop guitar by Vintage Guitars isn't bad, I have one.
Obviously it's not perfect, I had to have the pickup selector replaced and the tone/volume controls are a bit cheap, but it plays and sounds good. On the clean channel of my VH100R there's a bluesy vintage overdrive facility, and it just sounds magic with the Peter Green, it sounds just like Kossoff on All Right Now. Makes the hairs stand up on the back of my neck.
Hi Viking, it looks like your question about photos has been missed. You'll need to upload your photo onto the web then use the yellow box above with like a mountain in it to link its URL to. Altenatively I am sure Ian or Dan will post them for you if you e-mail them in.
Thanks Red Don,Logged on once to this page first thing I got was settings so I ticked show comments to all ect. Never saw that settings page again??? Thought the link might be there sure I didnt see any.Or maybe I did miss it when I first joined this page.Property size of pic I want to launch is 804kb, dont know if thats to large and allowed on the page.I shrunk it,was 2mbs before. Just going now to check the link you left.. formatting options. Afraid I'm a bit green and new to the web. Cheers Wullie.

Hi Dan, SNAP online at same time. Hows it going. Just put apic on page.
OOPS you just logged off when I sent this. Sorry.
A weight of awe, not easy to be bourne,
Fell suddenly upon my spirit - cast
From the dread bosom of the unknown past
When first I saw that family forlorn.. Read More »
