In My Own Words:
Bloke... Estd. 1971... Work as an IT Training Instructor specialising in SQL and Microsoft CRM. In my spare time I enjoy writing and have three books of my own here on Amazon if you can find them (look at my lists!)... Love watching 'Gregory's Girl', listening to bands you've probably never heard of, and eating garlic bread... And if somebody gave me an Amazon voucher I'd die of shock!

Reading (literary fiction mainly), writing (all kinds of things, mainly fiction), music (listening to, not playing), housework (more of a "need to" than a "like to")...

Ukulele In A Day For Dummies by Alistair Wood
Ukulele In A Day For Dummies by Alistair Wood
2.0 out of 5 stars Not very good, 25 July 2014
This is an extremely short book which provides an extremely basic introduction to this quirky instrument. If you've got the author's "Ukelele for Dummies" book you should avoid this one as it is really just extracts from the opening chapter or two, providing the absolute basics such as how to hold the ukulele, how to strum, and so on. After reading this, and at the end of a day, you won't really be able to do much at all. To be truthful you'll find better stuff online on websites and also on YouTube.

3.0 out of 5 stars Frustrating, 25 July 2014
One of my friends recommended this book to me as we're both music geeks. I'd read mixed reviews in the press but, swayed by his opinion of the book and the reviews here, I decided to try it for myself.

It's an easy read divided into sections roughly devoted to decades, and each chapter focuses on a particular band or genre of music popular at the time. Even in a book as thick or long as this some acts are given short shrift, whereas others get more coverage, sometimes deservedly so but in other instances it feels as though they are favourites of the author. The chapters feel almost like self-contained essays or articles, and if a particular genre or act isn't your cup of tea… Read more
Sennheiser Replacement Ear Pads for PX200/PXC150/P&hellip by Sennheiser
My PX200s have served me well for several years now but the ear pads were starting to show their age with bits of the black leatherette stuff flaking away. As the headphones themselves still sound great I thought I'd try these rather than throwing the lot in the bin.

Inside the package you just get the two pads in a small bag bearing a Sennheiser sticker, and no instructions. The old pads simply pull off and as you remove them you notice there is a lip on the plastic frame and the inside of the pads simply fits over the lip. It takes a few seconds to fit each but with a bit of patience and both hands they're easily fitted and are secure. Once on, the sound is unaffected, and… Read more
