The Deadheads have come out as self-confessed oddballs and we have all had a good go at them for it. What's your oddball musical qualification though ?

I collect metronomes - currently I have just over two thousand and I synchronise them twice a month.

Was Lord Cut-Glass in Under Milk Wood your greatest role model, Sparky?

I'm not sure I have any musical qualifications. My oddness doesn't end with my musical taste. Perhaps I'd qualify on the grounds of having amassed a nearly complete collection of King Crimson studio albums before realizing I didn't like them and having to sell them all again. Or having owned a guitar for over thirty years but never learned how to tune it, with the consequence that I could never play it in tune.

I do have a metronome and it has sat for years between the amp and turntable - true! ( It has great sentimental value to me as it was my Grandmothers, a very talented musician, and it lived on her piano when I was a child).

Gordon - Old Cut-Glass was indeed my inspiration for many years, we were born in the same village.
Cornish - The old metronomes can be quite valuable now - and they are very easy to play, if a bit boring. Get half a dozen going at different tempos though and man, have you got a party on your hands!

How about I've owned a guitar for five years and no nothing of scales and proper chords? Or does that just make me a punk guitarist?

That's entirely normal I'm afriad RAB, a punk guitarist would take ten years to get to that level ;-)

In that case I'm a worryingly normal guy when it comes to music.

Normality qualifies you as an oddball round here.

No it makes you lead guitar material in any number of metal bands. Distortion on max + some sitting-in-front-of-the-TV-noodling and hey presto a guitar god is born.
