The lowdown on the Mississippi Sax. Just for Google, this section is about harmonicas.

Need some opinions please.

Hi Guys,

I have just updated my website with a new look. I am trying to get a 50's retro feel to it.
If anybody has any opinions/suggestions I would be grateful.

On the music page are a bunch of tracks that I recorded. Some are solo things and some are with bands I have played in a few years ago.

If anybody has any opinions on my playing (good or bad) I would love to hear them.

Thanks Guys
Kingley

That's a nice start, but I think you could use some more 50's era graphics to jazz it up.

Thanks Songdog.

That's what I was thinking myself. Ideally I would like to do something like this site.

or maybe like this

[updated:LAST EDITED ON May-02-06 AT 11:38 AM (EST)]Well, I love the graphic style - but if you really want critisism, I'm not crazy about websites that have that cover page thing - I want to see content as soon as I can.


But - if there has to BE a cover page, a calendar cutie perched on a harp mic is pretty much what it should be.

There you go.... add some pics of Cadillac fins, neon hotel signs, maybe a black/white picture of you sitting at the counter of an old diner. Don't forget the old style bowling shirts... and yes, lottsa pinup girls are good!

[updated:LAST EDITED ON May-02-06 AT 12:41 PM (EST)]Yeah I am not sure about the cover page idea. Like you Alan I always find I want to go straight to the content.

Mmmm, I do those pin up girl images. I think I may look for some fifties adverts 'n' stuff to fill it out a bit.


Thanks for the feedback guys.
