"Hiya Ian. Haven't heard from you in a while. Got a weird email today informing me that you are NOW a member of the Bouzouki Players Group (as if you just joined,....I'm informed when new members join up). I thought you already were, but…"
"Hello Diarmuid, I tried to send you a 'friend' message but not sure if I did it right. It would be good to hear from a piper in the nearby areas (I'm in Coggeshall). Should you wish to, you can get back to me here or via…"
"I've just had my bouzouki and octave mandola fitted with under-saddle pick-ups. Both Headway, and I play through a Headway SK60 acoustic amp. Superb set-up - designed for acoutsic intruments and it produces a very faithful sound - almost…"
"Zeal S. Do I care who you are? Well how do I know when I have no idea who you are? I might have passed you in the street, only I'd never know it.
Personally, I think it's a little cowardly to hide behind anonymity. I tend to believe that…"

"Hi Tony, a while ago I might have disagreed with Emily (it seems I normally do ;-) ) but I do begin to think she is right. I think the member map is a great idea, but it is beginning to irritate that it causes 'drag' when I arrive as it…"
Well done on your presentation of The Sheep In The Boat/An Sport!!! The transition was flawless, the sound clean, the music was an enjoyment to listen to. When I grow up I wanna be just like you!!!!! };^) Thanks for the wonderful…"
"I agree about the guitar. It's an easy instrument to get started on but a devil to play well; I got the basic chords sorted in about a week when I was a kid - and then progressed very little further :-( .
Check any of these clips…"
"Hi Bernie, hmm - exceptions noted, but I think you might get a few protests from that comment ;-). Which is not to say that it's entirely unfounded, of course; it quite possibly explains the thrash syndrome, not to mention watching…"
"Hi Danny, you summed it up in one - 'figuring it out'- and that's why more people don't play this way - it's very difficult to figure it out. I struggled even when I was sitting eight feet away from Eoin... There is…"
"So here's a little challenge: point the way to some places where it is explained how to play the bouzouki in that more subtle way. I'm not for one moment defending thrashing, but as far as I can see, none of the exponents of the more…"
Hiya Ian. Haven't heard from you in a while. Got a weird email today informing me that you are NOW a member of the Bouzouki Players Group (as if you just joined,....I'm informed when new members join up). I thought you already were, but when I went into the Members Section I couldn't find your icon or any of the comments you've made. It was as if somehow "all of you" was deleted. Did you quit the group? Please let me know if something's up. Hope all's well. Cheers,
Well done on your presentation of The Sheep In The Boat/An Sport!!! The transition was flawless, the sound clean, the music was an enjoyment to listen to. When I grow up I wanna be just like you!!!!! };^) Thanks for the wonderful posting,.....now when's the next one coming???? Cheers,
