Hi from me I am 61 so probably one of older forumites I am a full time teacher of

Classical guitar - acoustic - blues - rock - bass and some nylon jazz
Piano - all styles but mainly jazz blues and boogie woogie
Singing - classical - pop - soul - gospel - jazz

I know ThomasRoss and Thing - we all talk on another forum I have heard examples of Thing's playing - he is a very fine creative guitar player

I have been playing for about 42 years - being partially sighted I do not gig as I do not drive

However I perform quite a lot as a paid actor in TV commercials

The more charitable of you may think "Gosh this guy is really versatile" the more cynical "This guy will do anything for a buck"

I have been listening to jazz generally since the early 60s when Bobby Timmons was my hero along with Miles Davis My guitar hero is Joe Pass - I love that style of his

Hi Tone...."I know ThomasRoss and Thing - we all talk on another forum I have heard examples of Thing's playing - he is a very fine creative guitar player"..... I've told you before, you're not putting your willy in my bottom.

Tone does actually feature on ads here in UK, he usually plays old guys............ Very Happy Very Happy

In fact I think he was a bloody pirate on something recently.

If I tell you the unsuspecting members of this forum I am about 6 feet tall 240 pounds buiild "stocky" and play

Pimps - barmen - greasy spoon owners - gangsters and other sensitive characters you get my drift

I have played the ugliest mermaid you will ever see in a blond wig and fishtail for a fried chicken commercial Captain Bligh for a German car company and a penguin for a well known games manufacturer

I did not use a costume for the penguin but wore a tuxedo

Lifetime member of the Ugly Guitarists Society

Thomas I mostly record as a keyboard player which is not appropriate for a jazz guitar forum I will be producing stuff in the New Year on my website I am not going to put my photo on the thread relating to what you look like - there may be children watching and this leads to complaints I am the guy people move away from on the late night bus

It's OK, it's a kind of way to say hello amongst musos in the UK. If you're ever over here and you want to make an intro to a muso, just say 'Hi, you're not putting your willy in my bottom' and he'll know straight away what you are.


This may or may not be true, Thing Music Corporation takes no responsibility for any subsequent beatings that are applied to you, nor can vouch for the safety of any limbs whilst in the UK

Just remembered, you Yanks are a litigious lot..... Wink

What's a muso? Is this really an American who understands irony?!! Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

It's what we call a musician.

By the way, I thought you said you'd been to UK? London isn't UK, London is just......London. Even Brits feel like foreigners in London. Bit like me going to New York and saying 'Yeah, I've seen the States..' Wink I bet you went to Stratford-Upon-Avon and/or Bath....

I have, however, been to Florida twice and I must admit you do a good line in theme parks and cheap guitar strings.
