Greetings from the Uk

Postby tom1984 » Sat Dec 31, 2005 12:59 am

Hey Guys,

Discovered this place a few days ago and really enjoying it. I'm a 21yr guitarist from Newcastle Uk, trying to get my first blues band of the ground having played in numerous rock and indie ones for the last few years (before growing up :) )

BRB's been a goldmine of information already, so thanks for that and thanks in advance for any future stuff!

Tommy

[updated:LAST EDITED ON Jan-05-06 AT 04:14 PM (EST)]Well I'm a ways from the UK, hmapshire or otherwise, but only about 40 miles from the UP (that's Michigan's Upper Peninsula, where the Cornish pasty found a second home). Welcome, Tom. Great to have more folks around my kids' ages playin' the blues.

Hi Tom

Nice to have you with us.

And to all you other Brits recently on the board.

(Y'know, a really sort of jolly useful thingy would be some means of knowing just how many UK chaps are here! A means of searching the "Profiles" bit would help.)

However, it might also interest the new and fairly new UK Big-Roaders to know that it's not too late (if you speak nicely enough to Diamond) to get in on BRB UK 2000, an annual, weekend get-together of chat, jamming and workshops, culminating in a blow-out, strut-your-stuff, Saturday night blast complete with backing group (for those who get lonely), that takes place every March.

Details are here: http://www.bigroadblues.com/dcforum/DCF ... 1/262.html
and in other posts in the "Hometown Blues" section.

And for more information about this not-to-be-missed event that might not be in the various threads (such as the availability of Hmapshire pasties) feel free to send me or 'Diamond' an email.

PS: With a chunnel, hover-wotsits, and other regular means of getting about, BRB UK 2000 is well within reach of Holland, Belgium, France...

Lorilu, once you've done that, you'll need a Geordie to English one.
