GHS Fast Fret Guitar String Cleaner and Lubricant
GHS Fast Fret Guitar String Cleaner and Lubricant
Offered by Sharp Tech
Price: £7.69

4.0 out of 5 stars String lubricant, 28 Jun 2014

I use this all the time on my guitar strings and it seems to reduce the friction with your fingers so you can move around the neck with ease. Your strings last longer so it pays for itself over a few string changes.


Magic Moments: The Definitive Burt Bacharach Collection
Magic Moments: The Definitive Burt Bacharach Collection

4.0 out of 5 stars Good collection, 28 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Gives a good overview of one of the truly greatest composers. So many hits and also mixed with some of the not so well known material. As always, there's always something there to remind me whenever I play any of Burt's great songs. Recommended collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good product from good manufacturer, 16 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This small unit allows you to charge 5 devices from a single electrical wall socket. This is ideal if you have a lot of charging to do over USB - such as smart phones, tablets, kindles etc. I recently purchased a blue-tooth speaker from the same manufacturer which also needs charging through USB. Have to say I really do like Anker products they seem very good quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still great music, 8 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Always loved quadrophenia as one of the great works by the who. This is their recent 2014 live event when they reproduced the whole album on stage and to their credit they can still do it justice. Roger's vocals still hit the mark and Pete Townshend delivers with a cutting edge all those great guitar licks that bring this whole thing to life. There are movie clips that spin back to the 60s and show the who captured in that time - there's also some great footage of Keith Moon and John Entwistle proving how much they are missed. This disc is a joy to watch and well worth getting - my copy is on blu-ray and the sound and picture quality is excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as it gets, 24 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So easy to use and you can have all your eggs in one basket. What is there not to like? The effects sound as good as anything you can get from digital effects pedals with all the sounds and settings accessible in two panels on the top of the unit. The loop pedal is the only area that I think could be improved - easy to access and use from a single pedal on the unit but with only 30 seconds or so has limited memory available - otherwise great product from Boss!

Bob Dylan: 30th Anniversary Concert [Blu-ray] [2014]
Dvd ~ Bob Dylan

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Bob, 24 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love this concert which is a musical tribute to the work of Bob Dylan. There are many artists taking part and each contributes their own styles while keeping to the familiar structure of the originals. The highlight for me is the appearance of George Harrison who rarely made the stage after his legendary bangla-desh concerts in the early 1970s - but as Dylan appeared on that show perhaps George felt he needed to do this one? The music is what matters and these artists do justice to Bob's work. I think the greatest tribute an artist can have is to have your work covered by others like this - I think it shows how much it influences and without doubt Dylan deserves that recognition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book, 24 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Beatles in America (Hardcover)
I have all three of Spencer Leigh's books on the beatles (the others cover Hamburg and Liverpool periods) and all are excellent. These are books are interesting for anyone that wants to be introduced to the beatles but also fans like myself that have already read many other books on the subject. They are richly illustrated and contain many references to people associated with the fab four. What I particularly liked in this book are quotes from people you wouldn't normally associate with them and what the 'beatles invasion of America' meant to them and what it meant to them. Worth buying and I'd recommend the other titles also.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome, 21 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really can't fault this - the picture and sound quality on my bluray is just fine and the playing by all the artists is sublime. Just proves that their is life still in the blues and these guitarists continue to show how it should be played. Love it!

3.0 out of 5 stars The Best Of Ringo, 24 Aug 2007
After the break up of the beatles, Ringo was certainly the most unlikely to have much success with a solo career. He has managed to produce a number of reasonable songs with a little help from his friends and perhaps, unsurprisingly, his best work featured contributions from his ex-beatle buddies - notably collaborations with George Harrison ('Photograph' and 'It Don't Come Easy') and John Lennon ('Goodnight Vienna'). Other partnerships have included Marc Bolan ('Back Off Boogaloo') and Harry Nillson ('Only You') - more recently Ozzie Osbourne. All his best material is probably here but my personal favourite was 'Early 1970' - Ringo's plea to the other beatles that 'if they came to town he'd love to play with them again'. This collection proves there's more to Ringo than Thomas the Tank! A long overdue best of collection for a charismatic and highly undervalued drummer.

3.0 out of 5 stars An interesting read, 27 Dec 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I read this book over Christmas and found it an interesting read. As a lifelong fan you could argue that some of the 'facts' presented here may be dubious, but its a far more balanced view than the anthology presents. I enjoyed it and would recommend it even to casual fans.
