    10 Years.

    I've been a member of this Forum for 10 years today.

    I'll soon be eligible for parole, on the grounds of good behaviour.

    I came here thinking I knew plenty, imagine quickly realising that a lot of members had forgotten more than the sum of my knowledge.

    Thanks for the lessons, the laughs, and the lorry loads of guitars that I wouldn't have had the opportunity to play.

    Thanks for putting Greeny in my hands - there won't be another moment like that for me personally. The circle completed, everything I love about this game condensed into one moment. Bliss.

    Thanks for having the class to share your guitars and your knowledge, your triumphs and disasters. Saving the database resource here was so incredibly important, those that went into bat to do it - well, consider my hat tipped. Bravo.

    Above all, thanks to every single one of you that has the bottle to say what's on your mind in any given situation. We may be just a bunch of disparate strangers on the interweb, but we're a bunch of strangers that seem to hang pretty well together.

    I remain a pupil, a bloody noisy one at times, but a pupil nonetheless.

    Here the obligatory shot of Greeny...I'm almost smiling in the picture - I won't tell anyone if you don't...








    Stay cool Lads.

    It's a rare honour to be in the same crew as you Al, truly.

    Mates? unreservedly so. Forged out of the same Smithy I reckon.

    Ten years already?

    There's the Greeney shot!

    Maybe one day you might actually learn how to play one.

    Re: 10 Years.

    WTF! (Because Biggimus Allosaurus MISSED THE OPPORTUNITY!)

    You weren't required to wear that big stinking ankle tracker?

    Damn!

    I was halfway to
    Canadia and they zapped my azz!

    Now that you gave them the "Wow! How happy I am being here!" story you think they will let you off with time served?

    How much of the time did you have to serve?

    I had to serve lunch and dinner to both Slubman and Daughtry for the last three.

    That or the 'pit' they said!

    That's OK. We will plan what we plan.

    I still have my plan.

    In the 'butterfly' sense.

    I'll send it over to your cell under the mashed 'taters next week.

    Be careful. That ain't gravy...

    Happy 10th! The regret I have to not have gone to that guitar show where a few of you got to handle Greeny.
    The guitar that got me interested in Les Pauls.

    Thanks a lot Pal.

    I was at that very show, but it isn't where I played Greeny.

    I went to the show because I'd convinced myself that it was my first and only chance to see Greeny in England before it went across the Atlantic, forever. I heard the circus master of a custodian playing it on stage, but wasn't that interested in joining the queue to have my picture taken with it. I felt like it was being ponced around like a bearded lady, by the then custodian.

    Imagine my surprise a couple of weeks later, when I got a text from me mate...ad verbatum..." I've got Greeny, see you in a bit..."

    It transpires that it's circus days were over, and a number of un-named geezers, members here, had set about rescuing it's reputation.

    An hour later...I got a couple of hours playing my favourite guitar. It was this guitar, played by it's eponymous owner that I heard on the radio in 1970 as a bit of a kid, that started this odyssey - I trace my interest in guitars to that unformed point, and is what I mean when I say it's a circle completed.

    I'm not even a bit player in Greeny's history, but it's played more than a bit part in mine.

    I just checked. I've been around for almost 18 years. How is that possible? (I think I took a break for long time though.)

    Congrats on your decade Paul.

    Hey OMITN.

    That Greeny pic is so sick

    Yes I’m doing well. Gearing up to record a new ep with OmnisighT this summer etc.

    Nice to see Man U doing so well in Europe. I think they have a chance, but watch out for Man City and their pursuit of the quadruple. I’m excited to see if Ajax can surprise Juve. I’ve been a fan of Ajax since the 90’s CL campaigns vs AC Milan and Juventus. That’s when I became aware of LVG.

    Anyway I’m glad things seem to be looking up for you and the missus. Keep on rockin those LPs

    Always enjoy your posts and keeping up with the LPF brethren

    Congrats on 10 years, always enjoy your posts and Northern humour/outlook.

    14years 1 month for me.

    Always enjoyed this site though been at the point of leaving several times due to arguments that really don't matter in the great scheme of things.

    Seems to me that Facebook and Instagram are slowly killing these great sites off as there appears to be less chatter nowadays......no big bunfight for quite awhile

    Good wishes to your better half, hope she's keeping you on your toes

    BTW...….that old guitar in your picture has the neck pickup in wrong way around

    Congrats on 10 years, always enjoy your posts and Northern humour/outlook.

    14years 1 month for me.

    Always enjoyed this site though been at the point of leaving several times due to arguments that really don't matter in the great scheme of things.

    Seems to me that Facebook and Instagram are slowly killing these great sites off as there appears to be less chatter nowadays......no big bunfight for quite awhile

    Good wishes to your better half, hope she's keeping you on your toes

    BTW...….that old guitar in your picture has the neck pickup in wrong way around

    Cheers Keith.

    Diplomatically speaking, fook Facebook and Instantcoffeeogram...they're for children, and people who need to narrate their breakfasts.

    Not like us grown ups....

    We must have run out of empty houses if there's not enough to have a row about....
