GUEST,ritchie New: Beuk of the Sangs of Tommy Armstrong (5) RE: New: Beuk of the Sangs ofTommy Armstrong 03 Jul 03

Conrad, Good luck with the beuk, hope it goes well. Now then you being a bit of an expert on such matters you maybe able to help me out. I love the version of Bony Sally Wheatley as done by Bob Fox & Stu Luckley and as useless as I am always thought about playing it one day. To my delight, I was in Belford and in a little book/arts shop ran by a lovely 'old' lady, so in my small way, I try to encourage local shops, so I bought 2 books. One was 'the dialect poetry of Fred Reed' which is very, very good and the other a book of 'songs from the North East of England compliled by Matt Seattle' which has some good songs and notes about the songs. It also has two tunes to 'Blaydon Races' which I knew but never realised that there was to ways to sing it ! Anyway here's the rub, the tune to 'Bonny Sally Wheatley' is not one I'm familiar with ...if this makes any sense it starts G..C..Bm..Em..C..G/B...Am7 etc. not the way Bob Fox plays it, I don't think, or is it to your book, I'll email the 'outside the USA' address or will I be able to pick it up here in the NE? Just one last thing , there is a good copy of Ashington words and their meanings floating around at the minute ..quite comical. if you want I'll email it to you.

regards and 'keep it real (or should it be reel?) Ritchie
