Nope, 'cos that'll only encourage him to do bloody 'Delilah' AGAIN  >:E

P.S. Pikey, I might have a spare ticket for the BH gig in Guildford next month if you fancy it?  ::)

Maybe it's to do with the sound level or something, but has that Dino been fitted with air horns?

Well having been indirectly cited in this thread ... I thought I ought to "do something unexpected" myself!

Here's the Black & White Rag on the Hohner Cornelia ... sorry for the bad audio.

Stonkin'! I haven't heard the Black & White Rag for ages. I love ragtime guitar stuff too, shame it's eluded me for so many years but I just can't get my head around playing it.  :'(

 I am truly amazed!!!! And now for a few more explanation points!!!! Just to drive the point home!!!!!!
