  1. Classic. Go straight to the top of the class🏆
  2. @NickDHere's the FB page for the lady who gave me lessons, she's called Kay Moorcroft (I'm confident you won't want to punch her) https://www.facebook.com/xkayxdaniellex/timeline?lst=100002290243666%3A760012855%3A1605870708 I'm sure she'd be able to do zoom lessons and her rates are very reasonable. If you message her, mention I passed her name to you so she knows you're not stalking her. I'm Phil Hughes for reference
  3. Bought a Digitech Dirty Robot pedal off Sam. Arrived the next day and very well packed Thanks Sam!
  4. Not since the invention of the contraceptive pill has so much thought been applied by so many (mostly older) men to the application of a bit of rubber!

  9. I am a singer and think I've got a reasonable voice. I was struggling with the higher register stuff so took some lessons with a professional singer based in Leicester (can pass on details if anyone's interested). A lot of my issues were with mouth shape. The more rounded/oval I made my mouth and the higher I could raise the roof of my mouth the better the higher register notes became. You see opera singers do this all the time and it might look weird, particularly when you're singing a rock song, but it works. Another thing we did in the lessons was sing a lot of different styles, from Frank Sinatra to Opera and that really helped. Plus I have lots of warm-up exercises, which I do mostly in the car before a gig to avoid looking like a complete silly billy in front of my band and the bar staff.

  18. I've not really listened to any of his stuff apart from the ones played on the radio. I'll have a deeper listen. Thanks to everyone who has posted songs on this thread, I'm discovering songs and artists I knew nothing about which is very refreshing.
