Hi Bill, I didn't managed to see you perform this piece at Wakefield Cathedral , but I did see you and your brother Ian play 'live' at an open-air concert in Clarence Park. On that occation you played a black Yamaha SG2000.
I'd like to improvise over Alter Pieces and was wondering which guitars you used to play over each musical segment. Did you play acoustic guitar over any parts. Which did you play e-bow over ? I know ultimately it's up tp me but I was only wondering what you did.
I seem to remember seeing a photo of you using a very deep bodied Guild guitar. Maybe you used your Vilette-Citron ?
Looking forward to improvising over this amazing soundscape.

Hi, Major...you know, those Wakefield Arts Festival concerts were 24 years ago now, and whilst I can remember events from 60 years ago without too much difficulty, I can't quite recall which guitars I used at the 1990 Wakefield Cathederal concert. It's quite likely that my Guild X-500 was one of them, the dark green Yamaha SG-2000S too, but that's my best guestimate. If I played acoustic live back then, it would be my Ovation 'Glen Campbell' bowl-back.

These days my live concerts feature around a dozen guitars on average, sometimes more, but I couldn't say which guitars are used on which tracks as choices can alter depending upon my mood. :wink:

Hi Bill, thank you for your very swift and personal reply. That's one of the really great things about this forum . . .a reply from you, person to person. Priceless. Is that concert really so long ago ! :shock:
I seem to remember when your other web site was still active, that there was some rather negative comments from certain quarters relating to this aspect of your music. I recall that some even warned that you were dabbling in dangerous territory with your Gnostic beliefs :twisted: . What nonsense. I personally enjoyed all of Chance Encounters in the Garden of Lights. I haven't checked, but is that double LP available on CD ? Altar Pieces is from that same era of your musical journey. To now have it in high audio quality is wonderful.
oops, I've gone off on a bit of a tangent.
Your music never ceases to inspire. Thanks.

Chance Encounters was available on CD, Major, but it hasn't been re-released to my knowledge.
