Flat Eric, Bass and Guitar. . . .

Hi to all out there. . . . yes I am still here! : )



This is post number 249 and on October the 6th, my little contribution to the world of Basses and Guitars, will be ten years old!
Yes, Ten Years Old!!
In the early days, I was putting out over fifty posts a year, with a pile of information, some of it useful!! : )

There were off the shelf instruments, customs, specials - all sorts and on top of that I did features about Peavey, the T Series, T-40 and T-60 as well as a large feature on Peter Cook, the guitar builder and member of the band, July - all was buzzin'!
I also did an extended piece about Reeve Guitars, which attracted a lot of interest, as did the magazine feature I did, with Lars Mullen.

Then, things changed and I couldn't find enough time to dedicate to this blog on a regular basis - that's life. I now feel that I can get back into it and as it is the 10th anniversary and the next post will be number 250, I think I will climb aboard again and kick start this blog back into life.
I may start a parallel blog, sort of a 2019 remix - not sure yet but what I can say is, if you were with me from the beginning - Thank You and I hope to keep you interested.

Cheers. : )

PS. If anyone of you wants to drop me a line - perhaps detailing their favourite post or just to say Hi - Now is the time. Ping something on the comments and I'll respond. : )
