About Me
I play guitars . . . electric, acoustic and bass. I also play rudimentary keyboards, harmonica, and sing as best as I can . . . I record direct onto Adobe Audition 1.5 (formerly Cool Edit) from a Pod version 2.0. All the music that I create by myself, goes by the name of Major Snagg, and the music I co-create with my sometime musical collaborator, Tony Webster, is Big Sleep. The Lykes Of Wytch is my imaginary 'Psychedelic' band. Originals, plus 'classic' and 'fabulously obscure' covers. My own 'Psychedelic Nuggetts' imaginarium. The Valiant B's section, is a secret dark corner for the music I find harder to put a label on ! Acoustic, Ambient and other 'experimental creations' live here. . . Recordings made for the now closed, Coconut Blues Club.

Harmonicas...Hohner Blues Harp or Hohner Marine Band   Which harmonica do you prefer to use...I'm just referring to the Hohner brand here...but another brand might be your prersonal fave...so, is it a Hohner Blues Harp or a Hohner Marine Band ?
I can't make a balanced judgement, as I've only (so far) used Hohner 'Blues Harps'.
Marine Band and Blues Harps are the same price in the Uk about £25 or so.

My most recent replacement is a Hohner Blues Harp (MS) in the key of D...to play blues in the key of A.
Yep, one thing you must remember if you're going to blow harmonica for blues tunes, is that you use a harmonica in a totally different key. So, ...
The return of The Lykes Of Wytch   Here's a new cover song (and an instrumental version of it) by my imaginary psychedelic Pop band...The Lykes of Wytch. It's been a while since their last release of anything onto Soundclick. In fact, the last songs from them were See Emily Play and Arnold Layne. Enjoy the good vibrations people...get 'hip' to the groovy beat.
Ernie Ball 12 string Slinky Custom Gauge 2230 (Nickel wound).   A special 'Hi' to any players of 12 string guitars out there here on Soundclick. I've always struggled with the string tension on both my 12 string guitars. I own a beautiful red Yamaha Pacifica PAC303-12 and an electro-acoustic Yamaha APX-4-12A. But now I believe that I've now found the perfect set of strings that suit both guitars...this gauge of strings is perfectly fine for electric or acoustic guitars in my opinion...
Ernie Ball 12 String Slinky Custom Gauge 2230 (Nickel wound).

The gauges are...E - 008 / 008
B - 010 / 010
G - 008 ...

Andrew and I thank you for the kind comments on Cleo's sexy song :^))

You're welcome David. Same brain waves here - I can remember my piano teachers angry facial expression when I didn't have my music practiced well (I was 6), and the sweet scent of the pretty girl who sat next to me playing the violin in Jr. High orchestra. But try to remind me about gigs in the bands from a few decades back, and I draw a blank (funny how other people will tell me how in the world I could forget some of the crazy occasions...). Big cheers to the music! - Bob

Hi David, really enjoyed your interview with Rodz. You're just a little bit older than me but I can relate to everything you said including about the only options that they gave you when leaving school. I had similar options too. Have a great week.
Thanks David - you made the whole process very easy for me. It takes some work putting everything together, but it's worth it to hear the end result - you were a great subject...and we've got an online art exhibition as well!! After looking at your artwork I looked around and found some of my old drawings etc from when I was at college at 18. I'd forgotten all about them. It was great to hear all about the 50's/60's & very nostalgic. And you have a very interesting musical history. All fantastic fun!!
Hi Dave. Thanks a lot for your nice comment on "Hold on". I listened to the Flower Kings a couple of times, on your recommendation and I like it a lot! Very nice ballads and some rockin' grooves. A little of everything and high quality all the way.
