Finally 'she' is here...some things for you to play aswell!

So here we are...over a week since I last posted. Why you ask?

The reason for this site is to follow my progress on the 8 string guitar and to inform others by discuss concepts that apply to it.

So it finally arrived on friday morning at 10am. You should know, up until this point it seemed to be missing somewhere over the Atlantic. USPS="It was sent and should be in the UK." Parcelforce="It hasn't been received, it can't have been sent!". Needless to say, I almost had a heart attack, but she is here now.

You could look a few posts back, but I want another excuse to post a picture of 'her'

My Wes Lambe guitar is....."Jackie Brown!" (The name my flat mate Trondur came up with the name for 'her'. It had to be a girls name, it was brown. It sounded good to me; Pam Grier's career was revitalised because of
Jackie Brown, so the hope is mine will aswell. Also, this beauty is one bad mother!)


I have honestly never played an instrument of this build quality, it's excellent. I haven't really put it down since it arrived. So let begin the learning, here are a few transcriptions I have done for 8 string:

Great site. That is a nice guitar-bass. Hard to play?

I will be back; keep up the good work with the music sheets. j
