I would just like to say a warm welcome to all members, both new and old.
Please feel free to join in in any way that takes your fancy. Without input from you guys we just sit still. With your input we can grow into something that will benefit us all.
Our newest members, John and Liam — Don’t be shy guys we really want to hear from you. Instrument reviews are always welcome, we need to know the good from the bad before shelling out our hard earned. ( Check out the sell / swap section first )
Video / Audio clips are also welcome, especially those that don’t go quite to plan. That way we know we are not the only ones that cock things up sometimes.
Please let us know of any links to sites that you think would be of interest.
Most of all though. Enjoy your music !
Today we lost Bert Weedon.
Bert died aged 91 earlier today. Even more music in heaven now !
Greetings one and all.
I recently (about 10 minutes ago in fact) stumbled across a very excellent download, a bunch of songs that the late great Buddy Holly (real name Charles Hardin Holley, note the E in Holley) recorded in his New York City apartment in the months prior to his death. Some are incomplete, some have the sound of his wife (presumably) putting plates away in the background but I like them all the more for that. They are for the most part just Buddy and his acoustic guitar (most likely a Gibson J45) Some of them you might know as a full band was added after Buddy’s death to keep the hits coming but these are the originals, and they’re bloody great!
Anyway, they’re known as Buddy Holly – The Apartment Tapes, and they’re here
