Re: Good beginner acoustic guitar?

Got any recommendations for an acoustic guitar for a beginner Frank? Been playing classical guitar for 3 years but mainly just with chords and have been meaning to get an acoustic. So, any recommendations? It depends on how much you want to spend. Yamaha and Farida do very good guitars, as do Epiph...

Re: Million Dead Songs?

Hi Owen. Uh, I guess I look on the MD stuff pretty fondly. Musically and stylistically I'm pretty proud of it. There are moments in the lyrics I find pretty naive and indeed I feel like a lot of it was showing off intellectually which I find slightly grating now. But overall I'm happy with that par...

Million Dead Songs?

Hey Frank, just been listening to some old Million Dead songs today, and I'm wondering about your views on them looking back now. It's obvious both the way you write and your perception of the things you write about has changed over the years, it does to everyone, but do you look back at songs and t...

Re:

Nice song! I like it! I actually started a thread like this before but it didn't get as much of a reaction, probably because now there's a lot of new faces round these parts now! I'd quite like to get people's opinions of my song 'False Start', which is on here: http://www.myspace.com/arranoakesmus...

Neil Young

Hey Frank, I know you're quite a big Neil Young fan, and so am I, the man's a genius and even at the tender age of 67, still proves to be just as good as he was when he was 27, in my opinion. Anyway, I was wondering what you'd say are your Top 5 Neil Young songs? It'd be interesting to see what ever...

Re: Chords for New Songs

I'm been playing around with Tell Tale Signs a little bit, the verse sounds like it's Am, Em, Fmaj7, G and the chorus is mainly G C Fmaj7 with an Am in there somewhere, I think.

Least of All Young Caroline

Hey Frank, can't wait for the new album! Pre-ordered and tickets bought! Anyway, now the tracklist's out, I'm just wondering as to why Least of All Young Caroline missed the cut? I was surprised to see that it wasn't on the album or the deluxe version, I prefer it to 'Tattoos', which is still a good...

Re: Four Simple Words Chords

Hey, all. I've been obsessing lately over all the new songs Frank's being playing at gigs. I've been trying to work out the lyrics to them. Most of the videos I got from gigs, and the videos I've found online are pretty clear, so lyrics aren't a huge problem (except for about three lines in Four Si...

My memory isn't what it was....! nope. last time i played that song was around 2007. I was literally saying on the trai...

Re: New Songs (2012)

Last night at Liverpool he played "Good and Gone", "We Shall Not Overcome" and "Four Simple Words". I was the only person in the whole crowd, it seemed, that was singing along to them, people were looking at me like "how does he know the words? Isn't this new?", but yeah, We Shall Not Overcome is an...
