At least you lived to tell the tale. :D All this has reminded me of the frightfully sad ending to My Girl. :cry:

It is a good remedy for hay fever as well as being great in cooking. You need to start eating it prior to the hay fever seaon though for it to be most effective. I tend to have some on toast or with ham in sandwiches.

I'm still very much in an early stage of writing but I can vouch for the theme thing. For years I've tried writing lyrics then coming up with a tune that fits but it doesn't work, yet strangely, playing to the mood of the song gets you the result you want... ! I finally hit on that method a few week...

Sadly I can't listen to anything at the mo as I'm on college computers but I have the Feed My Frankenstein and Hey Stoopid tracks off the Classicks album and enjoy listening to those. The talking guitar thing in Feed My Frankenstein is espcially fun to hear. As for Dickinson - I liked the Masters/Mo...

I've never got into Led Zeppelin to be honest but I can appreciate that they do indeed rock on some songs. I think Robert Plant's voice puts me off mostly... it doesn't reach me. Deep Purple on the other hand - Made In Japan was a great record I agree, and of the few other albums I have, Machine Hea...

Does this guy have albums available to buy then? I've read his tutorials in Guitar Techniques(?) and never realised he had a fan base of his own. Also I once spotted him at Southampton train station and my guitar teacher said that he was probably there for some convention/festival (can't remmber now...

Fun is good! :D
My practice tends to range between half an hour and two hours now. Usually I go for one hour though. If it's a proper session.

Oh yes... 7th Song is very good if you like ballads... and even if you're not big on them... the tracks chosen for that album have some lovely melodies. The way the texture is so layered just makes for a rich listening experience, esp. on tracks like Boston Rain Melody. There is some vocals on one t...

I agree on the above two as I have them myself. I've heard good things about Johnson but never got into his stuff. As for a third... hmmmm, I'm rather stuck. I think anyone who's read a bit and listened a bit will appreciate the classicness of these albums no matter what generation they are from. Pe...

For the 1234 exercises I'd recommend getting a metronome or, if you have a keyboard, just set a simple rhythm on there. :D
