As you're all probably aware, Brian May will be appearing on stage on friday at the Guitar concert of all guitar concerts, playing a FENDER STRATOCASTER!

I desperately wanted to go to the gig, but due to (logistics, and) the fact i will be on stage myself playing a gig, i can't be.

However, i will be playing my Red Special, so there will at least be one on stage being played (although i admit, not even a tenth as good as the mighty Mr May!) on Friday!

Why thank you.

I probably require a bit of luck since the talent in my opinion is lacking. I've been playing guitar for years now but this is my first gig with this particular band, all the songs are their own (not covers that i can learn easily) and i've only practiced 5 or 6 times with them over the last 3 weeks!

Its either gonna be crap or the best gig of my life!

Sounds like a great idea.

I see you're a Wolves fan too. (Plymouth is a hell of a journey).

We could really get on well!

its hard to sound like may but its possible. Ive been playing for 2 yrs and I was up at the woodwind and brasswind and had a red burns (gold was sold :( ) pluged into a vox amp and had 3 delays so great and distortion great.tip.... to build 3pt harmonys use the pentatonic scale when using delays. or pick a chord and use notes from that chord!

I'll play bass! Although it may take me awhile to get to gigs considering there's a huge body of water between us. But that's minor.....
