  1. Not been on the forum for ages...sorry. :(

  2. Haha, hey Ev, I did one of those once! Or at least I think I did. Needless to say, it was awesome! Tech terms and jargon end up pissing me the hell off after a while. Some older guys "jammed" with me and my bro one time, and seriously it was painful. They were all like major this and minor that, diatonic this and diatonic that. I just stood there and said "can we just freakin' jam dudes??!" Put it this way, they had far less feeling in their playing than I did. Sometimes you can really get hung up on terminology that you turn music into a science rather than an art.
  3. Emo stuff sucks ass. Erm, Nickelback, Linkin Park...all that crappy teenage music...My Chemical Romance. I mean seriously, come on...people actually like that stuff!!
  4. Went to see Dream Theater about a month ago...freakin' amazing!!
  5. On saying that JP has hybrid picked on occasion. But there are hundreds of top notch guitarists that hate it, or just plain can't do it. Some guitarists don't even touch a pick and they are awesome. So long as the song sounds great...that's the main thing. I remember my cousin watching me at a gig and we were covering Dire Straits Sultans of Swing and I was playing lead. He came up to me afterwards with a real attitude and said that I had played it all wrong. He said "The guy from Dire Straits doesn't use a pick!" I just laughed at him and asked if the song sounded right and if I had played all the solos right. He had to admit that it was right. Needless to say, I won the argument. There are some crazy fools out there! Spesh the ones like my cousin that doesn't even play guitar but is quick to criticise. So keep rocking dude! Hell, strum with a banana if you like!
  6. I end up playing tons of my stuff hybrid picking. It's a great little technique to master. But also know how to play it non-hybrid. Keeps the fingers guessing.
  7. Thanks for your great comment in the caption thread. Really appreciate it. xxx


  8. Hey, just realised I had not added you. I was reading all your kind comments in the Caption Thread. Thanks hunny. Richard. xx

  9. Defo Open C. Get a guitar pro tab. The tab I got seemed pretty accurate to me. Play it through a couple of times and you will know where its going. Google search for a good tab.
  10. I hugely reccommend a guy called Xavier Rudd. Get on YouTube and check him out. He is amazing. Great acoustic music with a good beat. Makes me feel great.
  11. No worries mate. Let us know how you get on. Once you get that then try your hand at some of Black Mountain Side or White Summer, great songs with DADGAD tuning. That is an amazing tuning. All the best
  12. Yeah, that is the pretty good thing about this tune...the left hand is not doing too much. Some fingerstyle pieces are a real bitch to play because both hands are going crazy. So like Ev said, its your right hand that you will get angry with...have patience, like with any song you wanna learn. Jimmy's picking style has always been pretty haphazard, particularly live of course, but that's what gives his tunes the magic. They are not polished, so don't try to get every note the music or the tab tells you to get. Best of luck.
  13. However if they all did give a sh*t then there would be disused railways absolutely everywhere, old abandoned buildings and mills everywhere, old churches everywhere. And there already is all those things everywhere, but imagine more, and I mean loads more! It is always a shame to lose an awesome landmark, but so long as they don't start knocking Stone Henge down for a multi-storey shopping mall then I guess we can live with it.
  14. I think my last purchase was Xavier Rudd - White Moth. Amazing!
  15. Erm, I didn't find it too difficult to learn really. I guess it depends on how good you are at acoustic guitar...specifically fingerpicking. Also, if you are gunna learn it, make sure it is played with CACGCE tuning. That way you get a realy droning sound particularly when you play that low C. I think you can get by if you hit a few duff notes or rather pick good notes out of order, still sounds good. At the end of the day the difficult comes down to you getting the music and learning it, if you can learn it then do so, if not then file it away until you can. ReR
  16. I miss some of the old style pubs etc near me. I didn't really frequent them too often, it was cheaper to drink at home, but they had a character about them. It's the smoking ban that has caused the lack of custom IMO. Not that I dislike the ban because I never really was a fan of the whole smokey pub.
  17. Hey All...haven't been here for ages!!! Just thought I would remind you all of what I look like: In the Studio 2008 Post surfing with my Bro, Fistral Beach UK 2009 Hope you are all doing well, particularly all you folks that know me from this and the old board. Hope to talk more soon. ReR
  18. Hey everybody, long time no see...I haven't visited this site in ages, and I am still up there as one of the top posters. haha! Erm, I was already happy today....which is quite suprising.
  19. WOW! Great pics Maureen....I think we would make a great couple.
  20. Yup, he is definitely my brother. haha! And yeah we do have similar eyes...glad you remembered my eyes from previous pics Manders...I feel priveledged. Your pics were great, you always have such a great smile. ReR
  21. The love story of Ralph and Edna. Ralph and Edna were both patients in a mental hospital. One day, while they were walking past the hospital's swimming pool, Ralph suddenly jumped into the deep end. He sank to the bottom of the pool and stayed there. Edna promptly jumped in to save him. She swam to the bottom and pulled him out. When the Head Nurse Director became aware of Edna's heroic act she immediately ordered her to be discharged from the hospital, as she now considered her to be mentally stable. When she went to tell Edna the news she said, 'Edna, I have good news and bad news. The good news is you're being discharged, since you were able to rationally respond to a crisis by jumping in and saving the life of the person you love. I have concluded that your act displays sound mindedness. The bad news is, Ralph hung himself in the bathroom with his bathrobe belt right after you saved him. I am so sorry, but he's dead.' Edna replied, 'He didn't hang himself, I put him there to dry. How soon can I go home?' ReR
  22. I ain't posted one of me in a while so here we go. I am the one with the sunglasses on, the other guy is my brother. We had just finished surfing and were watching the sun set. Hope you like it. ReR
