Anything to do with the things that make the music we listen to.

The bane of my life! (Hmmmmmm predictive gobbledeegooker had no trouble there) Apollylogies though for past and future mistakes.

Andrew - my profuse apologies for the irreverent tone of my previous reply - having enjoyed the intelligent Zappaesque wit of your own posts (Burt Weedon Sandwich for example), I thought it might strike a chord, so to speak. Obviously not.

I did see your mention of attending a course, something I can thoroughly recommend. In fact it was as a result of attending an excellent course many years ago at a college in London that I began studying jazz harmony and applying it to the guitar.
As you are located not that far from London you may be familiar with the place. It's called Goldsmith's College.

I saw this post a few months ago and I wondered what a man of your considerable intellect, advancing years and ahem instincts is doing a-strummin' away on an acoustic wimp-box.

Then it occurred to me. Art though perchance in love, my boy?

BTW I've got 27 TL072CP ICs that someone gave me a few years back. No idea if you could make good use of them in any way.
Wimp box or not, this is gorgeous!

I can think of other things to do with the thick end of £11000, such as get a less fancy D-42 and waste the rest on wine, women and song. Or at least wine and song :lol:
