I do. Alot.

I used to listen to John Renbourn. Though he played at a few more BPM, this reminds me of his tunes. Excellent.

I love Mark's arrangements - he had a real talent for tunes that were really catchy, but sounded like you'd heard them before (a bit like Oasis as it happens).

Last time I spoke to him he was far more interested in keyboards than guitar though; a great loss for us. Anyone heard from him recently?

And very well played!

Cheers,
Steve
