Wow!!! The triangle! I am in awe of your musical talent. Doubtless you will be releasing a #1 hit single in the near future. None of that old double 'A' side rubbish for you though: You'll have a triple 'A' side with that awesome instrument.

Here's your backing group.

On the guitar, Doc Beaver
On keyboards, Some drunk from the boozer down the road
On the spoons, C4M
On the squeezebox, JimBob
On the drums, yours truly
On Violin, Shadow's mate
Rhythm guitar, MILF
The TNS Brass ensemble
And the TNS Massed choir

I love the violin apart from the human voice it is the only instrument that can make me cry.


I sometimes think a single violin sounds a bit screechy ..not all the time..just some of the time....but multiple strings ?..fantastic !!

It depends on whether or not the person playing is any good.

I've changed my mind. Yesterday I took delivery of a Korg M3 music workstation. That is the most amazing instrument I have ever played.

No other musical instrument has had more of an impact on how music has evolved since the beginning of the twentieth century than the electric guitar.Thus i always play this instrument and there is no substitute for this.
