I think I’ve fallen in love with my new ‘old’ guitar. I’ve even composed an instrumental with it for the new album – see below. I got it as a gift from a family friend who never used it that much. Better still it’s a rare early 1960’s Burns TR2 Guitar. The family friend had the guitar for 48 years but never really got into it as he’s a classical guitarist. Prior to that its original owner had had it for a decade from new. I’ve had it cleaned up and serviced so it can re-enter the world of music once more. It ways a ton but plays so well. From what I’ve worked out artists like Brian May and Hank Marvin played Burns guitars back in the day. It now lives in my attic studio – I just hope my other guitars don’t get the hump.
As a precursor for the new album I used the Burns TR2 to make that instrumental. It’s called ‘Herodotus’ He was an ancient Greek writer who travelled all over the place – a bit like my New ‘Old’ Guitar. I’m pleased about the way this number builds. To me every new album needs at least one instrumental. I hope you enjoy;
‘Herodotus’ is available to download for just £1 or equivalent from BANDCAMP
