    Hi Trev

    Anything from Status Quo would do me, however you only want one so i would go for Down Down, but I do like SQ playing loud when i am driving long distance!

    A night on bare mountain ( commonly known as a night in bare mountain) played as loud as you can comfortably handle – preferably by a big orchestra to get max effect while on a quiet fast road at night

    Three of my four sons play guitar. Two have played in bands and my youngest son’s band was offered a contract by a subsidiary of EMI.

    One of my daughter in laws and my youngest son’s partner are both brilliant singers. (they have done London stage musicals) My youngest son’s partner does occasional wedding singing at the moment, but she is now rehearsing with a girl band and they’re doing an O2 gig soon.

    Another of my sons does a brilliant Johnny Cash set, and I love doing Jim Reeves, Hank Williams and Perry Como …. Our weekly Karaoke parties are quite something!

    I have a USB (64gb) in the car with 6000+ tunes on it).

    Lol. I guess it’s age related. I have various playlists set up on spotify (r&b, chilled, dance, Asian etc), then I have a favourites folder which takes all my favourites from these (pointless I know) and use this.

    I can’t wait until I have apple play and have the proper spotify screen in my car

    I have Around 160 tunes stored / downloaded on to my old IPhone 5s which has been replaced by a 6s , and I connect this to various speakers at home, the TV, and the Tiguan, and the artists include Carlos Santana , Mark Knopfler , John Williams , the Shadows, Lynryd Skynrid the Eagles, America, Chicago, Fleetwood Mac, The Mavericks, the DixieChicks, loads of Beach Boys stuff, Supertramp, the Turtles, Lonestar, Status Quo, the Moody Blues, quite a wide variety.

    Pops, like your sons, I was a bit of a guitar buff for a while, and I bought my first solid electric guitar , in 1962, yes ‘1962’ , In fact, I started saving when I was about 12, I guess, and when I had saved up enough pennies etc (in Tom Thumb and Harlequin cigar tins) for the deposit on a guitar, I bought a new imported guitar from the USA , a Fender Stratocaster in a sunburst colour , which I had played the year before over in California , it cost a fortune but my Dad helped with half of the weekly payments , and I played it regularly, until I left school, and then I sold it at a giveaway price.

    I did practice occasionally with a couple of guys from South Wales , who eventually bent me and shaped me in fact any way they wanted -if paradise was only half as nice in those days as it is now eh?- but I was never in a group, however as a teenager I stood in with some unknown local groups from time to time, playing rhythm guitar, at the local dances Etc!

    I also had both a six and a twelve string acoustic guitar which I kept until long after I was married , and I also had a Squire electric in orange for quite a while!

    Then many many years later I bought a new Strat plus in Sonic light blue, with a maple fretboard, which I used with my Fender practice amp, but other things got in the way ( Parkinsons Disease ) and I stored it away, after about 30 hours use only, and eventually sold it in 2013 at 5 years old,for way over twice as much as I had paid for it.

    Now I have a Tanglewood acoustic, with an electric pickup ( as I still have the practice amp ) and I fiddle about with it occasionally, like today after reading your post!

    Happy days Mike 700. Music makes a big difference and I remember Amen Corner from Cardiff, so much love for all you musicians and long may you keep playing.

    I really like your choice of music.

    Thanks Pops,

    SIX STRINGS.

    When I was just a teenage lad
    Back home In Wales with my Mam and Dad
    I dreamed and dreamed of many things
    But mostly i dreamed about six strings

    So I went & bought me a Stratocaster
    Which almost became a blinking disaster
    The cost was oh ever so much
    My Dad said WTF ‘? We’ll have to ‘go Dutch’

    But l practised so hard on my posh new .shiny guitar
    Hoping one day i’d become a big star
    Well one Thomas Jones I did once follow
    He used to come to the local club, in some sleepy hollow

    Of course He wasn’t really famous in those days
    And smoked even while singing, what silly ways
    Yeah and my gang and I each smoked a pipe
    Didn’t like it at all – don’t believe all the hype

    Then I gave it all up for a different thing
    and anyway I freely admit that I couldn’t sing
    many years and more went by
    With travels far up in the sky

    Then one day I saw another shiny Fender
    The wife said what? ” you been on a bender ”
    I could have a new lounge carpet for that sort of price
    But after all the arguing she lost on a throw of the dice

    My Strat Plus guitar was still looking like new
    Shining in a lovely bright “Sonic Blue ”
    ’cause our friend Parky came on me to call
    And now I can hardly play it at all

    But never mind eh. it’s was worth quite a bit they did say
    So I thought I would sell it on the local fleaBay
    But a valuer instead called from the Street named Denmark
    And they sold it for more then I had paid – oh what a lark

    So all was not lost it went to a good home
    And anyway it was the inspiration for this feeble old poem
    So the moral here folks is that yes, Disability can sometimes be tough
    But There can be some smooth with that little bit of rough

    Fender strat plus in sonic blue ….. mmmmmm! I bet you were sad to part with it.

    We’ve got a music and karaoke party at home tomorrow night so the guitars will probably get an airing.
