Hi Tom, very good to hear from you.
Lauries Bar, in King Street (just off Argyll Street, near the Tron Theatre), Glasgow, is a great Saturday afternoon every three weeks with the next one coming up on 28th August, where you get to meet the great and famous like Frank Denholm (Dapper McDans). There are jazz bands playing in the bar as you go in, but we are consigned to the back room. Just follow your nose. Hope to see you there. Bring your guitar!

I have e-mailed Adam about his new FGM…See More
"I have a left handed Blue Chip TAD 3R 40 pick and I find it a great pick to use, no scraping and quick on the strings. The only problem is that the tone is quite bass-y which is great for lead picking or Mandolin but not so good for rhythm…"
