A busy month of gigs and interesting people

June 27th, 2011

There have been some lovely musicial moments this month; starting with The Beehive in Swindon.

Swindon’s quirkiest and most ecclectic Pub. Live music, art gallery and… BEER!”

A very warm greeting from the Owner, Andy and an audience that really listened. And then there was Malcolm, a musicologist from the local college who boldy asked why, when I had such a lovely sound did I need amplification. That lead into a wonderful conversation about the quality of the guitar, the leads, the use of a quad amp and the science of a pure tone, 440-Hz, harmonics, capos and inside a guitar. Topics I totally enjoy and can talk for some time on, especially after managing a specialist hi-fi shop for many years.

As Malcolm departed for the evening, he presented me with a complicated sheet music he had just written for me.
