I've been to Norn Iron getting on for twenty times and nobody told me about Duke Special!!

Duke is absolutely fantastic, thank you so much Janet - an Irish Antony Hegarty, though he's probably sick of being told that.

I'm so glad you liked John Wright, Janet. After he died, his widow (they were married five weeks) opened a music shop in Barney -down on the Market Place, near the old Woolies that is Heron now - but sadly it didn't survive the recession. He had a really big following in Germany and the Netherlands.

If you would like to get hold of one of his CDs you can get one via his website. My favourite is one called Requests.

No excuses for this totally self indulgent selection. In my humble opinion this is about as good as it gets. The greatest track Pink Floyd have ever recorded and played live to near studio perfection. This has to be one of the last live performances by Richard Wright before his untimely death and a great tribute to the skill of a wonderful man.

I don’t suppose for a minute that anyone will last all 3 segments of this Youtube link but at least the Dinosaur of the forum has his last moment of 2009.

I tried to do a tricky hyperlink thing but after 5 attempts to drop the URL in the right place left handed I gave up.

Maybe someone who can play the guitar (or at least is knowledgeable with playing instruments) can help me? Currently, one of my favourite artists is Seasick Steve. What I want to know is whether he is actually a talented guitarist or whether playing a three string or one string guitar is merely a gimmick that anyone with a smattering of skill can do.

I STARED OUT WITH NOTHING Normal six-string guitar.

DOGHOUSE BOOGIE Three string guitar.

ONE STRING DIDLY BO One string guitar.....thingy :?:

Regardless of any answers, I will still continue to enjoy his music :wink: :)

It's easy as long as you can play and SSS can play, tuning will help too.
He plays banjo too, doncha just hate people who make it look that easy.

Another mob that make it look/sound easy are The Black Keys, helluva noise for just 2 guys.
