Fretted Instrument Reviews

Extensive evaluations, using consistent metrics, of a number of fine handmade guitars, mandolins and other acoustic fretted instruments.

Song Lyrics

Lyrics to my own original songs, some recorded by myself and others, and a number of hitherto unpublished pieces.



Musings, rants, meditations and flippancies on a variety of topics (many musical), serious and frivolous, weighty and ephemeral.

Pretensions, doggerel, miscarriages of language and the occasional success; whatever captured moments can be scribbled on a half-torn envelope…

People both before and since have tried to invoke God or devil to justify them in what their glands insisted upon.

– William Faulkner, Absalom, Absalom
