Welcome, Dave.
Hope you enjoy it here!
Glad to hear that you "get out and do a bit" - there's more to this "Keeping The Shads sound alive" than twiddling knobs (Oooh-er, Missus!! :oops: ) in the privacy of your own "home studio". Like you and your mate Ron, we ("Life Story" - our family Band) do it just for the hell of it, as well as raising a bob-or-two for good causes. We even did a gig in your neck of the woods - well Beamish actually - last January. :roll:
As I'm "only a Drummer", details of your gear (apart from the Strat - my son, also Dave, has a similar model) are way above my head, but I'm sure that one of the "techies" around here will be along soon! ;)
Keep up the good work, and have a very merry Christmas.
Paul :wave:

Hi Paul, Thanx for the welcome message , and i know all about the Beamish gig you did ,,
We were asked to play in the same venue and on the same day , but seeing as your band were due to play , we declined the offer ,, oh well , nevermind .
We thought that having 2 bands playing Shadows music would have been a bit over the top ,
I know Twang46 ( Dick) who helped organise the event pretty well , he sometimes comes up to the club where we practice to see us play .
He is also a member on our Shadows site, (no plug intended).
Anyway ,, thanx again Paul ,, nice to be here.
