  1. I have a couple of boxes of old 78's, including Max Bygraves, Bing Crosby, etc. Not mine I hasten to add. Any idea where I can get rid of them ? For a bit if cash if possible.

  2. A-ha. So it was you who threw them in the darkness. At least it wasn't Jimmy nails. It's madness and bad manners to stand in the shadows of your savage garden doing a massive attack and creating sparks with your garbage. You're as mental as anything. I got doctor and the medics to cure me after calling the police, and now I'm in heaven 17.

  3. my comment was supposed to be funny.

    NY has been my favourite since I heard his first album in 1969. I don't like his later stuff.

    I have tabbed hundreds of songs, and only use the published stuff as a basis. It's just this one didn't make sense.

    Why don't we issue tabs on here ?

  4. so just to clarify, I choose either of the two music scores which are both different, guess what key it is in 'cos it may or may not be the first note, pick a note to work out, follow the five bar gate thingy to the left to see if it's got a flat or a sharp on it, check the actual note hasn't got another flat or sharp or neutral next to it to change the first one, then play the note one semitone lower.

    It's so obvious I don't know why I had to ask.

  5. Neil Young - Alabama. I have the sheet music from 30 years ago, in the key of F, with 1 flat, B, which is correct. This only gives the lead guitar music. The first three notes / chords are F, G, E. 

    The bass mainly follows the chords, and I have those. But in places it does some runs, and I thought I would buy the sheet music with a bass line. Unfortunately, this is in the key of  D flat, with 5 flats. The first note it shows is a G, which with a flat is a G flat, or F sharp. The chord it shows for this is an F, with an F chord diagram, but with a note underneath saying G flat. It also says at the top - Guitar - capo 1.

    Could someone please tell me how to transpose to F.

    In general the north of Devon and Cornwall is less populated than the south so gigs will be fewer and further in between. The further west you go in Cornwall the less it matters as the north and south coasts are so close. 

    Plymouth, Truro, Exeter, etc are busy-ish as gigs go. We've found that the smaller more rural areas appreciate live music much more and even though the audience might be smaller than in the bigger towns and cities, they tend to be there for the music rather than just out on the lash and there happens to be a band on. 

    Neither of our bands are just standard pub rock and we've been doing alright, the Mod/Northern Soul/Ska band more than alright really. 

    There's plenty of smaller festivals as well. 

    You will definitely need a big car and a willingness to travel though. 

    whereabouts are you ?
