I have recently launched a new CD (The Potting Shed) I have also just launched a new website ( Extracts from the Potting Shed are on the website.I am new to a lot of this stuff and therefore it has been quite a learning curve. I would be grateful for any feedback.

Hi Paul

Just listened and voted for "My Sister's Eyes."  Great stuff.  It reminds me a bit of a folk singer from here in Canada, originally from Scotland, named David Francey.  Check him out on the internet if you have a chance.

Thank you Paul for the kind words. I don't get on here much but I should. So many great artists including yourself. I really like the Michael McCarthy song. Right up my alley!!

Came to your page via Ken Brodie and I'm really gald I did. I am listening to your songs as I type this-"Say You're Mine" is simple and beautiful. I am going to keep listening (that was the first one I heard)-I love your playing and if those lyrics are typical I'm in for a real treat!!!!

Hiya Paul! Great stuff!

Edinburgh is fine - at least at weekends when I'm there. Weekdays I'm in Aberdeen still and well, Aberdeen is... Aberdeen!

Hi Paul, thanks for listening. I am glad to meet you and hear your songs. I play mostly in DADGAD and I was fascinated to hear your songs in the same tuning. They are all of a high quality, and "Say you're mine" in particular made a fine impression. I do get down south - especially at the moment as I make fairly frequent trips to Devon where Brook Guitars are building my new acoustic.

I really like your high-spirited songs! I'm listening to them once again. I guess you're a little younger than me ( I'm 59), but, somehow, your singing has a lot to do with the songs that made my adolescence, that means the time when I fetched my father's guitar and tried to get something out of it.
PS: just for the sake of fun, do you fancy old "Shadows" tunes?

Just dropped into your page. Spent a while listening to the songs. Just loved them, and the accent, too. One of the great things about this community is the diversity of the people and music you can find here. If you have the time to have a look at my page, you will understand what I mean... Please carry on with the good work, congratulations!

Hi Paul

I enjoyed your songs. My wife and I often hear music of your style at folk festivals here in Ontario. I like songs that tell a story like yours do.

Hi Paul,

Just checking in to say hi. Yes, I'm still loving the new axe and working hard on new songs. Hope you are well.

Fine guitar work and your voice has a wonderful quality. And, "yes"...I bet your English teacher would have been proud of your lyrics.

Hi Paul,
Anyway you could post the chords to Half Open Doorways? I would love to learn it for my wife...I would do it in standard tuning somehow, so I only need the chord names...thanks, Edward
