  1. Is it unusual for bloom to appear after a long time? I have a Yamaha acoustic that I bought new in 1993. For the first twenty five years of it’s life the finish was perfect, but in the last couple of years very obvious blooming has occurred. Surely after a quarter of a century any moisture in the wood would’ve manifested itself sooner? It’s not a big deal as it’s only on the (nato / mahogany) back and sides. Incidentally the guitar spends most of it’s life out of it’s case on a stand, but not in direct sunlight and away from heat sources.
  2. Thanks all, a couple of mics in there I hadn’t heard of, I’ll investigate.
  3. I’m looking to get a new condenser mic for the home studio - my budget is around £150-175. I’ll be using it for vocals and acoustic guitar only. I’m investigating products like the Rode NT1A, Sontronics STC2, Audio Technica AT2020. Any advise, experience, recommendations gratefully received, thanks.
  4. I almost forgot... 🤦🏻‍♂️
  5. One word: Dingwall. I’m sure they’re great instruments but I think they just look ludicrous.
  6. Yep just like a four track portastudio, easy peasy. There’s another app called Tape, by Focusrite which is even simpler but the sound quality isn’t great, so I wouldn’t recommend it. It’s like they’re trying to simulate tape saturation but it just sounds a bit harsh and artificial to my ears. Nice user interface though.

  8. I believe Nigel Godrich did, when producing ‘Chaos and Creation in the Backyard’, and hasn’t worked with McCartney since. That’s a strong album though, Godrich was clearly a positive and productive influence.
  9. I thought his last album was the best work he’d done in quite a while. It had a couple of duds on it, but he’s never been the best at self editing.
  10. The kind of music I write, make and play owes a huge debt to Dylan, if I trace it back, and I realise that but I have to say I’ve always found him massively underwhelming. I’ve tried to like him, but I just don’t get it. This new track doesn’t alter my opinion sadly.
  11. I’d have kept the first four, I can live without the rest. Interesting that you kept ‘Don’t Pass Me By’.
  12. Getting on with it, which basically means stressing about my wife’s two businesses which will likely not survive this, trying to keep my two elderly parents with underlying health issues properly supplied and isolated, and now wondering how the hell we’re going handle an eight year old and two year old with no grandparental (in-laws, old but in reasonable health) help until the autumn. At least my job is secure, for now, so I can pay the bills. I did some sums the other night and it made for some depressing reading.
  13. Next (planned) gig for me is Easy Life at The Roundhouse at the end of March. The tickets arrived over the weekend but I’m fairly certain it won’t be going ahead.
