Subject: What should Greg Stephens play next?
From: greg stephens
Date: 22 Apr 09 - 11:59 AM

I am pretty indifferent looking, a few pounds over weight, and somewhat past the prime of life (early sixties, or perhaps middle sixties to be more accurate). So at first people laugh cruelly at me when I go into the pub, but when they find I can actually play the guitar a bit they are really suprised. Possibly a few are even moved to tears, though I haven't actually spotted this yet.
So, I'm hoping lots and lots of people will be really interested in telling me what tunes I should play next(Freight Train is the one I can do at the moment). I hope they will want to tell me if I should have a make over, or stay as sweet as I am. And do you think I should accept the offer of a million dollars to appear in a porn film? What do you think?

Two suggestions Greg -

Maybe you should play Over the Hills and Far Away :)

but most of all 'Stay as Sweet as You Are'

Taking you back to a conversation we had about 40 years ago, it has to be the Maple Leaf Rag - in the key of A. I was playing it (very badly) in G at the time, and this slim young thing called Greg Stephens said, "Everybody plays it in A". This chat, by the way, was at the stage door of the Lancaster Playhouse, where you were doing the music for The Beggars Opera.

So, there you have it, Simon Cowell and other Britain's Got Talent judges: Greg Stephens playing... the Maple Leaf Rag - on the tenor banjo! (Roars of applause from a bemused audience).

Who'da thought it...

I think you should play the hurdy gurdy next and then you can sing "The Hurdy Gurdy Man"

However, take my advice Greg and go for the porn film, but make sure your rhythm isn't too quick at your age :-)

Now laugh if you will, but I reckon I'm onto something. Take Neil Brookes and Tony Weatherall's stonkin' "Whitchurch Hornpipe" CD and give it a proper Boat Band cajun/ceilidh/grime remix. Result! C'mon, Greg! You know you want to do it! It's a bloomin' fab idea... you can even draught in a couple of rappers!

..."King Bee" ("I'm young and able to buzz all night long... If ya hear me buzzing, baby... There's some stingin' goin' on...)

Here's what you do, gregster... Put yer head phones on and listen to Sonny Landrith... He plays a cajan style of music... Steal a cople o' his songs...

Don't play no weepy songs...

Drenk!!!

That's my advice...

Hi Greg - For a real turn-on, why not try Morris Dancing? All that leaping about will certainly keep your vital juices flowing, as well as generating a healthy thirst for your beverage of choice. And in the pub session which usually follows a dance spot you can play Maple Leaf Rag, or Les Flammes d'Enfer, or anything else you fancy - to wild acclamation, no doubt. "Laisse les bon temps rouler"

Wassail!

For a man of your experience you should consider:

Centre half for Stoke City, Bass in a metal band, putting the Cliff Richard song book into cajun, tiddly winks, Othelo for obvious reasons and the part of Freddie Mercury on the next Queen tour

How about Trevor Howard in a remake of Brief Encounter to be filmed on Stoke Station with Jones & Shufflebottom in the setting or Geoff Hurst in a film of the 1966 World Cup, or the banjo a bit more often?

For Greg and Mike - as Oxford alumni, you may like to know that surviving former members of OUMM (well, these days known as Ancient Men)have been invited to Nairobi to dance today on St George's Day and celebrate the 60th birthday of an Ancient Man and former dancer with Abingdon. I understand that various Ancient Men have indeed gone to dance in Nairobi from various countries around the world.   So I'd suggest Haste to the Wedding, Getting upstairs and blue-eyed stranger. Not necessarily in that order.....

Ahoy there Mr. Stephens - you are a sharp lad and classically inclined - this lyric to the timeless tune of The Merry Widow Waltz will fit the needs of your immediate audience quite well.

The bird shit in the captain's eye
So why can't I?

An elephant poohed on the captain too
So why don't you?

If he's feeling funny
If he's feeling blue
Save the captain money
Just tell him what to do.

If his dick has boyles
If his torn thorn is bobbed
If his bliss is missed
The captain will give you the job.

Sincerely,
Gargoyle

Horses Brawl in the key of GG
The Rocky Road to Dublin in the key of A1 (or more accurately it should be a Bminor).

But seriously Greg - whatever you play I know it will be entertaining.
& I do like dancing the Horses Brawl (or City Brawl to be precise to that tune) and Blozabella have it in their tunebook as G to Gminor - don't ya know.

The trick, Greg, me old china, is to keep singing...

If you're singing you're likely to still be alive.
