    A Scotsman living in Yorkshire.
  1. Hi, I live in Yorkshire, England. I am Scottish but moved to live and work in Yorkshire 30 years ago. That's half a lifetime here. I really enjoy it. Yorkshire folks are very friendly. I still have a bold Scottish accent but I tell my Yorkshire friends that it is them, not me, who talk funny. For me to say I play instrumentals is correct but please don't think I am any good at it. It takes me months to learn a new tune. And IIRC last time I did learn a new one was more than 6 years ago. I dug out my guitars a few days ago. Dusted them off and had a hour or two practicing. I say Practice. It was more messing around than practicing. Anyway. I'll try to put a little effort in to improve. Or at least get back to where I was last time. Got a take up a hobby whilst in lockdown. I'll be indoors for the next 3 months. I am at very high risk if I get the virus. Cancer in several places. Including lungs.. Survivable. I should add.
  2. Thank you all. I'd love to respond individually but you know that would be OTT. Mr Idunno, I have no technical or practical abilities pertaining to guitar construction, theory or whatever. In fact, I can barely form an F chord. There, I said it. After 40 years, I admitted it. On a different topic, How many folks here have played a Stonebridge or Furch guitar? I have two. They sound so beautiful when I play instrumentals. (limited ability. )
  3. Hi back. Thank you all so much for replying. It means a lot. More than you know. Plus - thank you so much for welcoming me back. Phil, thank you for responding to that question. I can not fault your logic. I hope I can contribute enough to interest others. Be it on or off topic. The forum here is so quiet though. Does anyone remember 10(ish) years ago? Can we loosen up a bit and get this party restarted? Stewart.
  4. I was once a regular contributor here at the acoustic forum. It's been a while. Maybe 6 to 8 years since. It was great fun learning and laughing with you. The off topic posts were great fun and provided light relief to our main topics. Anyone remember Bridge pin discussions and whether or not Taylor Swift could sing? They bring a smile to my face to this day. Haven't posted in a long time. I have dropped in to view once in a while. The forum is so quiet now. Such a difference. I see the powers that be have clamped down on the off topic posts. Is that a coincidence? Anyway, I find myself wishing to learn, improve and chat about acoustic guitar after a long, long break. Picked up my guitar the other night. Old strings, old tunes, old mistakes. But they sound so good. I'm going to try again. Am I welcome back? Stewart.
