I'm off to France for a week on Wednesday and thought I'd do something with a vaguely French theme on my new parlour guitar. "The Roses Of Picardy" was written in 1916 by Frederick Weatherly (words) and Haydn Wood (music). Weatherly was a serving officer on the Western Front.

For me, it's a very bitter-sweet song, as it's almost impossible to think of the year 1916 without also thinking of the Somme...

Anyway, here 'tis as a little instrumental:

Nice guitar too - I likes 'em little. Rosewood and Engelmann, presumably? Who made it?

My old mate Ian Chisholm made it on commission from me - got it about two weeks ago. Ian lives a couple of miles away from me in Sussex.

Engelmann face - cocobolo back and sides, mahogany neck with maple stripe, snakewood tuners and old Brazilian rosewood bridge.

Dribble....
It sounds gorgeous now - I can't help wondering what it'll sound like when it's played in.

Indeed - I really intend to play it in! It's opened up quite a bit in the last fortnight already.

My littlun took ages to play in but it was never my 'working' guitar so it didn't get played so much. It does now - I'll PM you a pic, along with a nice bit of old Brazilian.
