    You might have to cut me a little slack when it comes to all my fonting.
    You seem to be an instrumental musician who doesn't sing.
    If you sang, then words would not only become important,
    but song-writing might have some responsibilities as a human being alive on this earth.
    And you have to admit, not bad for an old man.
    Dan Ackroyd, "Saturday Night Live", "Ghostbusters", "The Avro", was born a half hour away from me,
    but I didn't talk about him. He was there just to introduce Doctor and Honourary Professor Bruce Cockburn.
    I can understand where you're coming from, in England, while this is very Canadian for all Canadians.
    I still got tears in my eyes.
    You're wrong - I do sing. And I have written songs in my time. All in a quiet way, of course, at meetings of friends or in pub sessions.

    Please do stop making assumptions about me - you don't understand at all 'where I'm coming from', is the conclusion I've drawn since joining the site nearly three months ago.

    As for the 'tears in your eyes' - that's interesting, maybe even touching, but it doesn't mean that you should have posted the song here. It would have done far better on one of your posts that dealt with your guitar playing or other reminiscences.

    And what's this about 'cutting you some slack'?
    I am not doing you any wrong, but simply replying to your post in all politeness.

    I do think it wasn't a good idea to reveal another member's private messages, and to name a thread after him, and second-guess his opinions. On TC, this would have been taken down immediately.

    While you have the edit facility, why not make a few changes, in case he objects?

    Have a nice day.

    Runrig's Loch Lomond - heavy beat with 'cool' organ & pop-song voice.

    The YouTube video comments are full of praise, but despite my Scottish blood, I don't care for it, myself - too schmalzy.

    It's the trendy equivalent of a tartan-swathed shortbread tin.
