PETER WILLIAMS - PLAYING ON MY HEARTSTRINGS - CD
A lovely note from Peter about, Playing On My Heart Strings....
Welcome to my 23rd album ‘Playing On My Heart Strings’.
I must thank Graham Hunter for his Liner Notes for this CD. Always supportive and I always let him have a listen to each track as I record it. Graham looks after Marty Wilde and Mark Wynter, names you will be aware of. In fact, I recorded Mark Wynter’s ‘Image Of A Girl’ and he sent me this note: Oh my, took me right back to my first Decca recording session at the tender age of 17yrs. To walk in & see a studio full of Musicians ready to accompany me on that track with ‘The Glory of Love‘ as the B side. The realisation of my dream to be a recording artiste since the age of 13yrs.
I’d forgotten what a catchy Doo Wop tune that is and the mark of a good tune is if it can be played simply on a variety of instruments. Peter’s Guitar version really sells the melody. On that score it could have been an instrumental. In the heyday of Duane Eddy or The Shadows quite possibly a hit. Thanks for the memory! Mark Wynter. Thank you, Mark. I was absolutely delighted to receive your note.
I do want to thank GAK Brighton for replacing my Amp. Mine had stopped working just before I started this album and I contacted the guys at GAK and purchased a Fender Mustang GT100. My new amp was delivered quickly and then I realised my guitar settings had vanished with my old amp. Help was at hand. GAK had Fender call me and having listened to me playing on You Tube, configured my amp to the 1957 setting I use for my guitar sound. My guitar settings are now saved on my phone. Clever stuff. All done remotely through my PC to my amp via the wireless setting for my broadband.
I always get asked about my guitar. So here are the details: Fender Mexico Guitar, Made in 1998. Serial Number - MN8316511 Made in Ensenada Factory, Mexico
