    Yes. The only time I crave sweet stuff if after a relatively large amount of savoury, as in after dinner. There must be something metabolic going on, not just food preferences.

    I'm going to ask the same question I did before, because it was answered in terms of genres, not techniques. Are you more or less equally (in)competent at more than one playing technique or style? For example fretting and slide?

    I fret better than I slide and I prefer fingers to picks. So no. But I would say I'm proficient at most things.

    What's your biggest amp. And what's your smallest one?

    Largest is a 60W Blues Deville 2x12, smallest is a 12W SF Princeton (non-reverb). The Blues Deville is great for outdoor gigs and the Princeton covers small venues and can be used for acoustics. I have a couple in between for anything else.

    Does most of your family live nearby or are they spread out?

    Family to aunts and cousins, are spread across England, Canada and New Zealand. Close family within 100 miles.

    What is the prettiest place you have ever been to? Any pics?

    I like mystical forests. So Okunoin in Japan, and Puzzlewood in the forest of Dean, UK. I have pics, but they arent so good and dont do it justice.

    Your favorite forest?

    New York in winter. Just gorgeous. I went to Central Park at least five times. I don't go back to parks generally if I can help it. But five times in eight days.

    Where would you never go back if you can help it?

    Xpost somehow. Not a big fan of forests but Japan would be up there. Or perhaps the Chiang rai district of Thailand.

    Tough question, but I'd lean towards the Farnsworth House; I love that 50's minimalism ( Telecaster anyone?).

    Do you observe set meal times?

    Apart from breakfast, which has to be over by a certain time on a work day, I tend to eat only when hungry.

    To borrow the spider thread title, where do you stand on cats?

    My missus loves cats but I'm highly allergic. If I stood on one I'll be sleeping in the shed throughout our divorce.

    When you buy a guitar is it feel or sound that seals the deal?

    Feel - if it's an electric. Plugged-in sound can be adjusted / customised with electronic tweaks / new pickups, etc.
    Acoustic, the bias has to go towards sound.

    What is your earliest clear memory? - mine's falling down the stairs at age 3. Probably explains a lot.

    Being locked up by some a-hole colleagues of my mom's (She was a kindergarden teacher) and screaming for somebody to let me out.

    Ever bought a guitar based on what the hype is telling you an being disappointed by the reality?

    In my case all that BS about "Lawsuit Ibanez guitars being better than real Gibsons" made me buy one. The neck shifted in the pocked, the pickups were so microphonic that even with moderate crunch they would squeal like crazy and the tuners shifted. And after I addressed all those issues (replacing pickups, gluing the neck in and replacing the tuners,) I decided to get rid of it and the guy who bought it from me told me that I had defaced a work of art. SURE!
    :rolleyes:

    I buy guitars based on my own assessment, not anyone else's hype.

    Do you need a "partner/spouse" in your life, or are you fine on your own?

    Fine on my own, but the benefits of a better half cannot be denied.

    Ever move to a new city and regret it?

    I had to move due to my dad being promoted and I hated the new location for years. In retrospect it was a good move as the place we moved from has now gone downhill bigtime.

    Name 3 songs that you really like with the word 'city' in the title. Of the top of my head - The Cars: Heartbeat City, Yes: City of Love, Kiss: While the city sleeps.

    Sweet City Woman (Stampeders), Summer in the City (Lovin' Spoonful), City of New Orleans (Arlo Guthrie).

    Tubes for me - although solid state amps are getting better all the time; the Fender Mustang and new Marshall Core look interesting. I do own two s/s amps; and old Pignose 7/100 and a Vox VBM-1 - which is very good. When I first started playing 40ish yrs ago, s/s amps were truly a tool of the Devil!

    What is your favourite / most useful tool for guitar maintenance?
