Just starting to make a few plans for 2018. I’m going back to my old home town of
Aldeburgh in Suffolk for our 50th anniversary school reunion in October, and the
amazing (and totally out-of-place!) DP’s bar have agreed to put me on on Friday 5th.
Upton Blues Festival have given me a spot on the acoustic stage in July - great festival,
and I’m so pleased to finally be a part of the booked line-up.
Nearly had a nasty shock on the guitar front; I noticed the trusty 1918 Gibson was
buzzing really badly, and I thought the arched top had finally started to collapse.
But Jim Macy had a good look, and said it was actually the neck bending backwards.
He’s dressed a few of the frets (all 100 years old, so not much left to dress!) and
it’s just fine again.
Bought a very interesting old (1900?) Harwood parlour guitar at the latest auction.
Here’s a photo and a video clip (click on the picture);
