Geebo Age unknown !

I love floyd. Like the wish you were here album at the moment. Ive seen an aussie Floyd cover band the last two years, and they are brilliant. In fact they used a lot of old floyd lasers, and I heard that they are friends with the band and played at Gilmours 50th birthday !And I agree, Meddle was their best album, but if we can split hairs, Echoes is my favorite on it.
I play semi accoustic. But Im really a song writer more than anything. I have a guitar permanently tuned to open E, and have written a few nice songs on it. It just has a different feeling, sound or texture to standard tuning and that totally influences the song itself. Its just a nightmare inventing your own chords and playing style.Syd Barrett (of the Floyd) actually developed this very highly unusual way of playing the 6-string Open G tuning
