At last they are reunited, Strat and Tele, some of the best guitars I’ve ever played. And definitely the best guitars I’ve ever been GIVEN!
I am still dumbfounded by the generosity of Simon Raw of the Raw Guitar Company. I wish him every luck with his trip to Frankfurt next year!

I haven’t quite got to grips with my stompboard that I posted about a while ago – but here is another twist on the same idea, for those folks who are rhythmically better coordinated than I am!
As the name implies, the Tambo Toe is a tambourine for your, er, toes!
It certainly seems pretty effective in adding a little something else to an acoustic guitar performance.
It isn’t too expensive either – I wouldn’t mind giving one a shot!
