Toby has been around the forum for many years and become a friend to many people in that time. Part madman, part buddhist sage, part rock 'n' roll hellraiser, part musical adventurer. He ploughs an insistent furrow towards his musical goals of being a better player, better singer, better musician. His determined path towards betterment has come on the back of previous hard lessons and tumbles and frustrations.

Toby - you truly are a diamond bloke, a mustard geezer, a proper decent fella.

Whoa, I'm speechless. Did not see that coming in a million years. Was just to start my evening practice and prep work for OM5 but think I'll grab a beer and sit dumbfounded while this sinks in.

Be back soon.

Thank you both and everyone out there for making this possible.

I think if I had not have found Justin back in 2013, restarting guitar after my retirement would have been another crash and burn, like the many previous and failed attempts. What impressed me the most in addition to his teaching style, was the structure of the Beginners and Intermediate courses and then on top of that the offshoots into different styles and genre AND ALL FOR FREE !! I knew that if I stuck to the path I would finally be able to play this hunk of wood and wires.

But not only that, I found the forum and was welcomed by folks all in different stages of their guitar journey, form begin-again-beginners like myself to seasoned professionals and the odd troll but we won't go there !! The desire to share experiences and pass on knowledge has always been the cornerstone of this community and where I can, I have tried to do likewise. Each year I keep trying to play just that little bit better and although, for a number of reasons, I have not progressed as much as I would have liked, I still have the passion and desire to improve and a lot of that comes from what folks are sharing here on these pages.

There are a whole host of individuals here that have become close friends, teachers and collaborators who I would like to thank for keeping me on the straight and narrow. Encouraging me when I doubted myself or fed my constant need to learn and understand how this music stuff works, let alone try to apply it. I won't name you all individually but by our relationships, here and offline, you will know who you are. So a huge heartfelt thank you to you all.

For folks that don't know me yet or what I get or got up to, I was in the process of updating my Roadcase to chart the last 12 months. Boy its been busy and maybe one of my most productive but a new year will offer new challenges and so the wheel keeps on spinning. It will be posted soon, so watch this space.

I'd better stop while I am ahead or I'll be waffling on all night, like the video diaries and I've yet to play this evening!

So thank you one and all. Be safe be well.

You are never too old to rock n roll.

Cheers

Toby

Ahh Toby,
A well-deserved award if there ever was one.
I shall briefly press the pause button on my teasing/ragging and instead express admiration and gratitude for your input here on the forum.
Wouldn't be the same without you  :-*

Thank you kind sir ! Don't stop the verbal jousting, I've the skin of a Rhino and slopey shoulders and never take anything as personal. A bit of banter and a blague keeps the world spinning and us all sane. Cheers big man.  8)

Thank you Adrian. Its you young whipper snappers that keep me on my toes and wanting to learn more, play more, play better. Thank you for being here. Haven't a scooby what I want to get out of the lesson. I'll need to have a good think, as there is so much I need help on. But when it is done I will report back.  8)

Hey Toby. Congrats on the award my favourite Landan/French boy. The only advice I can give you is when you get your lesson from Justin maybe shut the fu for a few minutes and listen. 😂
Seriously, this place would be a quieter place without your banter! 😂
No, seriously seriously, well done. Your contribution to the forum is huge. I read all your advice to others and your posts/replies about music theory, recording techniques etc and think wow, maybe someday.

Toby dear heart, I'm thrilled to bits for you. You're a remarkable man, inspiring in so many ways. Your passion for living and learning, combined with the grit to make it happen, even when you appear to be on a down hill slide (headless Cherry on the tiled floor is one that comes to mind), is to be celebrated.

Congratulations  :-*

Just got home from works so I'm going to grab my guitar and crack a beer

Delighted to see you on the Honours List that matters, Toby.

You've been a wonderful source of education, inspiration, and entertainment throughout my time here in the Forum.

The epitome of learning, passion, and fun.

Keep rocking and rolling, my friend.

Good to see you get some accolades and love, TJ. I'm not sure what mustard geezer means, I hope and assume it's a good thing, maybe it's tied to Christmas cheese? Mustard goes well with cheese. At any rate, you are a positive force for good and worthy of all the nice things that can be bestowed upon you. Keep doing your thing and I'll keep digging it. :)

Yeah, Clint, "mustard geezer" is a new one for me too. I wondered if it was some lingo from a Guy Ritchie classic that I might have missed.

Maggie thank you so much for your kind words. And thank you for the many times you have admonished me for putting myself down and helping to establish some self belief. And a huge thank you on the singing front, sharing the DYV course was such a help, once I decided it was possible to sing and play. Following in yours and David's footsteps on that course has made such a difference to my vocal confidence. So I am so grateful for you tipping me the wink, as they say. Always a pleasure.  8)

Hope you enjoyed that time lag beer my good friend, it was well deserved. What can I say, the yellow box man who opened up the fretboard for me and helped me to see so much I'd thought was hidden. Your help, assistance and friendship has been invaluable since day one and I am honoured to have spent this time with you. Maybe one day we'll have that beer together.  ;)

Tom

Tom only too glad to have been some help. After 17 years of falling down potholes, manholes and ditches, I've only ever wanted to help folk avoid those same pitfalls. Some tough love at times but by passing on where I went wrong, so many times and help cement all the stuff I have learnt here, I can only hope it benefits others who follow. Thank you for your appreciation.  8)
