5.0 out of 5 stars Coren was a Master in many ways., 12 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 69 for 1 (Paperback)
I confess I nearly wet myself reading Coren's books - all of them, and 69 for 1 is no exception! I had real pain and tears laughing at this man's sense of humour and ability to convey it to the reader.


Bert Weedon's Play in a Day: Guide to Modern Guitar Playing (Guitar)
Bert Weedon's Play in a Day: Guide to Modern Guitar Playing (Guitar)
by Bert Weedon
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.99

3.0 out of 5 stars You won't play much in a day - maybe Three Blind Mice!!, 12 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you think you will really be able to play this tricky instrument in so short a time you must realise that for Bert's statement to be true you must accept some really elementary 'music.' Also, I think it would have been better if he had not tried to teach you to read 'music,' which is more than half the battle. Good luck though, you may do it!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb!, 12 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have visited Ballymaloe as a customer and partaken of the excellence of their menus. This course was purchased in order to reproduce some of the magic my wife and I experienced in this wonderful Irish setting. However good a cook you may be you will for sure learn many new techniques from buying this professional cookery book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Oh no you can't!!!, 12 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Janet does a very good job of showing you how to play this tricky, but lovely instrument. Sadly, although a pianist of sorts, I have found difficulty in making the darn thing do what I want it to. Let me say, though, that if you don't have three thumbs and a piece of wood on each hand you will almost certainly learn to play the Dobro - the slide guitar, under Janet's tutelage!

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost impossible to put this story down once you have started!, 12 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Superbly written and full of humour amongst the horrors of the 2nd World War, Noreen, still a very attractive lady in her later life, has retained a sense of humour while relating some of the most terrible things which happened to her friends and confederates in SOE. I was a lad - only 11 when the war was won by our side - and I was, of course, ignorant of the wonderful bravery of so many of our 'secret people'. I am horrified by the revelations of this book, but, in contrast, find it rivetting reading and very difficult to put down. Although far too late, I bow my head to the memory of those unbelievably brave people Noreen tells us about. Do get your copy - you will be amazed and yet you will laugh our head off at some of the descriptions this lady gives us of her friends in SOE.

Difficult to use, impossible to play from the book, it is far too small. Most of the tunes are unknown to me!

This review is from: Glide (MP3 Download)
Jerry makes playing the slide guitar look and sound easy - I can tell you, it is NOT! Glide is one of his best pieces and there are many more on Transatlantic Sessions - he makes this beautiful instrument stand up and sing!!! I wish I could:-(( but I'm trying - very!!

5.0 out of 5 stars On your bike Bradley!!, 7 Feb. 2013

Bradley is not only an unbeatable racing cyclist, he is a good writer too. This book is most captivating and descriptive of the pain and perseverance required to be a World Beater, which he undoubtedly is.
