    Just received some pics with Roy at the great gathering of guitarists [over 800] setting a world record playing the same song on my Facebook! Which song ?

    bigchris Aye lad, I knew you had it in you

    In Your ( well theirs ) dreams !! Get your facts right !! There were 824 guitarists ... they needed 2053 !! They were playing ( & some singing ) along with John Spillane, singing John’s arrangement of that most iconic of Irish songs, ‘”O Ro Se Do Bheath Abhaile”

    It was a world record for Ireland.

    Looks like a chord I recognise Roy is playing!


    ..and Roy's contribution counts as thousands which makes it a world record in my humble estimation?! :wink:

    PD?

    Can we have that picture of Roy in a floppy hat at Clon flashed up on here? I'm tinking [Irish for thinking] I can get it off Facebook anyway on reflection but thought it is such a wicked latest current photo which deserves to be on here? There's a new printing shop in Basingstoke who claim to be able to print on almost anything. What title wording would anybody suggest?
