    Hopefully this should work - thanks to Eric for the excellent instructions

    It's a bit rough around the edges but I wanted to at least post something!

    (Apologies for the facial contortions  - I didn't realise I did so many!)

    • Ron Your're right, Bream's facial expressions are priceless. I think his come from his musicality, however, whereas mine come from tension.

      Your iPhone definitely looks better than mine. Mine is a bit old, only an iPhone 7.

      Martin Thank you Martin. Yes, I think you may be right I just tried it both ways and I think I prefer it with the d - it gives the phrase more shape and interest.

      Eric Phillips Yes his musicality was incredible. I had the priviledge of seeing him play live with John Williams which was very entertaning as Williams shows little expression on his face.

      My iphone is only an 8 - my wife keeps telling me I should get a better one!

    • Ron Boy, I wish I could have been there to see them play!

      Until last September, I actually still had a flip phone. My wife finally took me out to buy the iPhone 7. I'll probably upgrade to an 8 in about ten years or so.

      Ron Oh wow, the Bream-Williams-Duo had a huge influence on my life as well. After some miserable competitions I decided to found a guitar duo, our repertoire almost copied all of the "Together Again" recording.

      Face-wise, I was also more the Bream-Type than the always-cool Williams 🥳

      Martin Both "Together" and "Together Again" were great albums. Williams expression is still the same - I saw him a couple of years back in a "6 Hands" concert (with Gary Ryan and John Etheridge). As well as playing together they also did some solos - if you've not heard it, check out JWs album "On the Wing" (it was on sale at the concert) - after hearing him play it I had to learn Madrugada which is a beautiful little piece
