  1. Yeah, hands up here, I definitely had a problem. On the mend now though ;-) What can I stick you down for then?
  2. Hi It's time the attic was cleared and my massive collection of new 40K boxes went to more deserving homes. All at 30% off RRP. The list is here :- https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1rYiRIAC2e-cNd6-doZSklMMP8wbKeURyN2utc6p1nLU/edit?usp=sharing Just give me a ring, the number is in the file. Cheers

    Just wondering if anyone is playing D&D on the Island and has space for one or two more players? Played at school in the 80's and a mate and I really fancy playing again. Cheers

    Roses Of Picardy

    It's a shame you see things that way. A shame for you that is. I wonder what dismays you so much in this 'music'? Are you instinctively distressed by minor keys? That would be a tragedy on a par with losing the use of any two limbs, rendering a huge part of the musical repertoire inaccessible for you. If this is so, try to focus on the chorus, which enters on the dominant of the relative major. Granted, we are forced to wait until the last bar and word for resolution, but I feel the whole chorus gives us all hope after the solemnity of the opening verse. Don't you agree? The only other thing I can imagine distressing you is the use of extended harmony. Maybe you struggle to get your head around anything more complicated than basic triadic harmony, possibly only in root position at that. There are some rich extended chords used in this piece, I can hear 11th chords throughout, and at least one 13th, to say nothing of augmented and flattened fifths. I can understand these might leave you feeling a little bewildered, but maybe you just need to listen to a lot more, and varied, music. Good luck!
