    Stevo I've got a zappy little nappy

    Hello there 'Nauts,
    I'm new to this site, in fact I'd never heard of the internet till just now.
    But I've been a Harpernaut for... too long now.
    I've got loads of Harpic songs worked out on guitar and, just for fun, I wouldn't mind posting a cover on Youtube, so if anyone has wanted to play any one song in particular - and if it's in my arsenal - I'll play it and you can see where my fingers go.
    Might even catch on.

    Can you play One For All Stevo? Once asked Roydan to play this at a LHS charity evening and he was amazing..

    Cheers, Shaun

    Three Magpies and Riverside

    How pastoral!
    I have to mention that my versions are -ahem- interpretations.
    I've never attempted Riverside, amazing as it is, because it seems to have two guitars on it. (That's my excuse and I ain't budging!)

    But Magpies is another story.

    Along with many of the Seed songs, something special was captured in that recording.

    Right - I'm on it. Thanks for the feedback, check y'all soon.

    Is it just Nick's songs you play, or do you attempt Roy songs as well?

    I realise what I might be in for when I say this, but I’ve never heard (of) One For All.
    I’m not too familiar with Harpic Snr. – I have Loony On The Bus on something called a cassette. I did see him live about three years ago with wossname (-his son) and he was great..
    Talking of whom, I heard just today on BBC R6, when David Quantick was talking to Neil Hannon about his new LP. It has a cover of Harper’s cricket-themed tune. I forget the name but it has ‘crease’ in the title.
    Justthebo! All them ones except ‘magic’ what a tune that is though. I presume y’all’ve heard it live with the loop-business?
    I’m going to Ireland soon for a week or so and I’m planning on bringing the old guitar. So I’m sharpening the musical tools.
    Seems I’m doing more typing than playing at present so I’ll bid youse farewell for the noo.
    Soon.

    I've got Neil Hannon (and Thomas Walsh)'s Duckworth Lewis Method CD as mentioned above and, whilst it is most excellent, When an Old Cricketer Leaves the Crease ain't on it.

    As Outkast said - Heya.
    I've been practising a Harpic tune to play. Just the solo to sort out and then I'll post it on Youtube. But I'm not telling you which one.


    Don't hold your breath though cause I've neither the facility to record or to post. I have friends who do, mind.
