  1. Not seeing that link there Rob
  2. Hit Single #1 - Hot Tuna
  3. curious... This is purported to be the hearing range of people and animals. Remarkable symmetry between Chinchillas & Horses. Who'd a thunk it?
  4. Curious. I went to Ireland about 5 years ago and sampled the draft Guiness in Dublin. It was exactly the same as the stuff we buy in cans (Guiness Original). So you are either drinking the so called 'draft Guiness' from cans or get some special export version. IMO, beer should not be sophisticated! Its £9 a bottle here. I dont usually spend that much on wine. A nice Australian Shiraz, South African Pinotage or Spanish Rioja can usually be had for about £6.
  5. I dont want another acoustic guitar, though there are a couple of classic Maccaferri plastic guitars up for auction in the uk soon. But am always fascinated by alternative materials for electrics. I've looked at wood alternatives. Wood will move. I even had a Flaxwood guitar briefly (didnt like it). I have been interested in carbon fiber guitars for years. The nearest e-models are by Status. They mainly make basses, but do one guitar also. I've not been able to try one out yet, and I'm certainly not ordering a custom build without doing that. Most electric players cant get their heads out of 1959.
  6. The recording sounds very nice. It has a sweet sound. Partly the guitar and partly the player of course. Nice choice.

  8. From Helen O'Connell no doubt?
  9. Wine: apothic red. Ok I'll give it a whirl. I usually avoid Californian and French wines. Californian often tastes ok at first sip, then artificial aftertaste. French? They only export the stuff they dont want. I dont want it usually either. I'll give you a report on the apothic red when I've tried it Tim. -Better be good! Ears. I would never choose to listen to mu0isc on studio speakers. That goes for headphones and NFMs. Too sterile. I had some Pioneer phones some 30 years ago that made everything sound great. I bought another pair when the originals wore out. I bet a sound engineer would know what it was made em sound like that. Beer. Until I was 40 I hardly touched lager. I was into uk style real ales. Yes the hoppy stuff. That gig we played at the Wickham Beer Festival, and they gave us flagons of beer to take home at the end (they couldnt store it) was fantastic. These days I do drink lager at home. Stella Artoise or Fosters usually. I also like to have Guiness on hand. Guiness Original if its out of can. Out and about in pubs, its still bitter beer usually. No I have not been drunk for more years than I care to remember.
  10. My ears are not as good as they were. MP3 seems fine most of the time. I no longer have high end gear. Well.... I still have my 30 year old Mordaunt Short speakers, but they just serve as stands for the much smaller Denons.
  11. Its only what happens in pubs/bars. You nip in for a quick beer, but stay for several. Tim's thread now entirely de-railed. Sorry man!
  12. The same thing happens with cheap wine.
  13. Why do you think I bought the wine glasses? I am hoping to entice women into my house. I bought a vacuum cleaner too. I'm sure it works. Its got a plug on it.
  14. I know. You're shocked to discover that I'm so unsofistikated. I am making progress though. I have actual wine glasses now. I cant remember the last time I necked straight from the bottle.
