Quite an emotional moment today.

My mum rang me. ‘We’ve been clearing out the loft and we’ve found a guitar which must be yours’

An hour later I was reunited with my very first guitar I was given for Xmas 38 years ago. I thought it had been stolen from my garage years and years ago. A hollow body Westone Rainbow. Needs some love and attention but brought back so many memories.

Worksop, I meant to post this a couple of weeks back when you first got the guitar and forgot.

If you have a bit more money available, this guitar pedal is an absolute treat: To view the link you have to Register or Login

You can string together a few chords and it will create a drum rhythm and bass line for you to then play along with.

It's a really clever tool and certainly made me a better player, and more fun when messing around with my own riffs etc, because it felt like they actually became something.

Looks great Tomo, thanks for that.

It was simply because I had pretty much made my mind up and was hoping no one would post anything that would make me doubt my decision.

Anyway, I bought it and am delighted with it. Iím even beginning to make it sound like a guitar.....

You can use it to even record songs and use a loop pedal, so could lay down chords and then put a riff over the top. It doesnít take too long to work it out but a very cool toy for a bedroom guitarist.

Looks interesting Tom, what do you play it through? I have a very small practise amp that I use (Blackstar Fly 3) which is fine for my needs, any idea if it would work okay with something like that?

I've got a trio. Basically it works through any amp though, obviously, a bigger speaker gives better bass.

I’ve even used mine through a tiny battery run amp that you plug directly into the guitar and have use headphones for, so pretty much anything.

I’m sure better guitarists may think differently, but I think as any amateur guitarist who plays alone, it’s the best tool you can get.

You can change the tempo and different styles as a backing track (maybe 12 different options), so if you learn a song you can usually find something that will go behind it well enough to make it sound like you know what you’re doing!

Sounds like just the thing for me, very much an amateur who plays solo, just ordered one.

I’ll be keen to know how you get on with it:

I should be getting a new mini amp for Christmas, so keen to play some more with it.

What I loved is that it can be as simple of technical as you want it to be.

I asked my missus to add to my letter to Santa. I have been very good this year, so I am pretty confident it will be mine on the 25th.
