Chers Tous,

Je n'ai pas pu résister. J'ai grandi dans cette ambiance en Irlande. Donc, regarde Basil avec Philomena et son orchestre (showband célèbre et très demandé), qui est originaire de Pomeroy dans le Tyrone à quelques kilomètres de là où j'ai été fils de Pasteur dans le comté de Tyrone aussi où j'ai assisté (clandestinement, le mercredi et le samedi soir) à des bals semblables, dans toute sa gloire de virtuose, jouant ce qu'il a établi comme la norme dans les showbands que j'ai si bien connus pendant ma jeunesse, à savoir la guitare solo et la Pedal Steel. On a du chemin à faire. Il y en avait des dizaines de showbands comme celui-là, mais tout le monde n'avait pas un as comme Basil. J'ai demandé à Bernard de mettre le lien sur YouTube, mais je me suis décidé à le faire moi-même. Il y en a d'autres comme celle-là, notamment Queen of the Silver Dollar.

C'est épatant de qualité et pas de Profex les gars.

Have fun. Si cela ne vous plaît pas, il faut changer d'instrument!

TIM.

Tim

I picked up your post on this subject on the European Steel Guitar Forum. Thanks for pointing out the inovative genius of the old boy. He certainly gave us more than a whiff of his great talents in every department at Chanos.

Your post will probably start his lower lip trembling all over again.

Incidently, where were you on the 19th and 20th? Hmmm!

Where was Moses when the light went out?

Dear Digby,

Both my wife and I had to toss a coin to see who would go to Amsterdam to listen to my son who is a professional classical music artist, and appearing in an Opera at the Amsterdam Opera House (tonight is the last night). I lost, and having been watching the dog for the last three days and eating tinned food.

My turn comes at the end of October when I go to Aix-en-Provence.

I am very pleased to see that Eddy Scheepers has taken the hint and begun to apply his steady tenor voice to the steel. That's what I bought mine for a couple of years ago. I am coming along, but it would not have been fair to plant me there in front of all those hardened musicians.

Maybe, when I have learned to play a little better. We shall advise.

With my best regards and wishes for continuing success in your active and dedicated involvement.

TIM.

Wahhh... it remember me the best moments of the "old grey whistle test" of emylou harris in 1977, with Basil, the fusion between Albert Lee and Hank De Vito.

Thks Tim

je n'ai vecu pour l'instant que quelques heures avec Basil. Mais j'ai pu me rendre à l'évidence que ce gars là il a une autre dimension:"il est constamment partout".

Je ne connais pas suffisamment la PSG et le monde de la country pour donner mon opinion en ces domaines, mais en ce qui concerne les Maîtres de la steel hawaiienne, style, jeu, technique mais aussi les chansons hawaiiennes…du début jusqu’aujourd’hui, à toutes les questions posées, il a toujours non seulement une réponse appropriée mais aussi, bien souvent, un exemple audio.
Basil est une véritable encyclopédie vivante en ce domaine, je le considère comme un monument et le respecte fort.
Et ce qui ne gâche rien c’est sa totale disponibilité et sa modestie, sans jamais vouloir s’imposer.
Quant à son jeu ? « Epoustouflant », diront les témoins présents à la soirée du jeudi 17/09 après dîner.

What exactly constantly "Partout" translates in english to is puzzling Question
Maybe "on another planet ? Anyway thanks my friends for the compliments, it was a pleasure to meet you all.

What I forgot to say at the awards ceremony was that I rely heavily on Pat for her backing. I also forgot to thank Digby, the committee and everyone there, for the honour they bestowed upon me. I was humbled and most thankful for the recognition of my 50+ years of playing and promoting the instrument we all are dedicated to.
Without Pat and her Father's encouragement I would never have played steel guitar.

Pat and I are looking forward to next year where the format of the festival may include another room with a "Club Scene" where there is a small backup group and all the players take turns to "Jam" together. You'll then get the opportunity to see just how good Pat is.

At the UK conventions (And occasionally in the USA) she plays backup to everyone, reading the chord sheets practically faultlessly, AND does it all day long, sometimes from 12:00 noon 'till 23:00, that's a LOT of playing and dedication.

I don't know if any of you know, but My Pat (along with Pat Jones) started the Brecon lua and convention 17 years ago and was subsequently an integral part of all the spin-offs. farao

Thanks Mat, I think more like a blend of Bert Weedon and Marcel Bianchi affraid

BTW (By The Way) there is ANOTHER clip of me with Belamina Figleaf...

Another one with Philomena http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RbAh1DvvtL0

I always played electric guitar AND steel guitar together, one verse the guitar and then the steel, mainly because when I went to Ireland in 1969 Des and Johnny Kelly of the Capitol Showband asked me to front a country band, they already had the Smokey Mountain Ramblers, but my band "The Virginians" was the First with a full country line-up Fiddle, steel, Piano, Rhythm guitar, lead guitar, Bass and drums etc. Before that there were country bands with either fiddle or a guitarist who sort of doubled on steel.

Well We had the luxury of being able to do twin or even three part lead breaks and a lot of the time when the guitarist was filling a verse or chorus we'd play arranged parts in harmony. I Had to have the guitar 'round my neck as I played the steel. It's now 2nd nature to me.

The fact that I'm playing lead guitar AND steel Probably made me slightly unpopular with steel players as I set the yardstick regarding having to double on lead guitar whilst playing steel.
All joking aside it helped promote the steel guitar in Ireland as a lot of lead players in bands were cajoled, coaxed sweet-talked and sometimes bullied into learning steel, there is now a new breed of excellent players as a result.

BTW By The Way, I wasn't only a steel player in Ireland, I designed and built recording studios, worked as a musical arranger and record producer, and because I can speak "Cant" (Shelta, Sheldru, Gammon, and Beurla-reagaird) was employed by the Irish government dept of education as an instructor in music technology and was an instructor at the Academy of Music Technology and Performing arts specialising in instructing members of the "Travellers" and "Gipsy" community.

Whilst learning about computers from the day the first one became publicly available. I HAD to learn most programming languages and became a beta tester for many software companies: Mainly music orientated applications such as (Initially) sequencers and later digital recording technology: I beta tested for these browser's compatibility.
