Christine

I'm new and saying hello

Recommended Posts

So hiya!

I'm from north Wales, been playing since 1974 but don't let that fool you into thinking I'm any good, you'll be sorely mistaken but I still enjoy it so what the hell.

I play in a Banshees cover band that gigs on a very occasional basis, we hardly push ourselves but again it's a lot of fun

I have a couple of Gibson Tbirds, a Fenderbird and a Fender Jazz at the moment. I also make guitars for a hobby, I've been doing it for years now, that's a lot of fun too

So in a nutshell that's me, lazy, rubbish and likes to have fun, even at my age

I feel duty bound to explain that comment :)

It started with a discussion online with a young man from France regarding the aging of white Tbirds between white and cream, His English not being absolutely perfect described a shade of white as being, well you can work it out but I have found every opportunity to poke fun at him ever since :)

Hi & welcome. Nice gear.

When I'm not playing my bass I'm riding my motorbike. Wales is fantastic and it's ways good to ride up to the North end, especially Snowdonia.

Phew..! Luckily the 'young man' reference puts me well in the clear (although my poor English could have pointed the finger in my direction :$ ...). I'm sure I would have chosen ... er... 'other' descriptions of colour. ;)

LOL, I'm sorry, accusations like that can follow you around :)

I just saw "sounds familiar" and "Location: France" and thought who do I know in France.... Well I feel better now, that's us both out of a sticky situation!!

Hat, coat... I know ha ha!
