I don’t just write (some would say I barely even do that), and during my recent blog downtime, when I haven’t been reading Sideways in Crime, I’ve been gazing in awe at OneMonkey’s fabulous new (second-hand) guitar. It’s red and shiny, it has lots of switches (and ten strings – all that extra hardware!) and with a few sunny days I went mad with the camera, some results of which can be seen on my deviantArt page. Needless to say he’s been learning some new songs with the aid of online guitar lessons including at a free site, and rediscovering old favourites. It’s a noisy time in the Monkey household, it’s a wonder I get any writing done at all.
