Letter printed in The Wire

I’ve been getting the music magazine The Wire for about 25 years, and I still have most of them!
Never have I felt the need to write to them, but after the editor Derek Walmsley told a little story about slightly wishing he had bothered to learn an instrument properly, I was driven I tell ya, to write.
I have always been into more experimental ways of playing the guitar, with loads of fx, guitar synths and not to mention, looping. But never really got to be an expert guitar player, which I regret. And probably too late now.
However, Hilde bought me a lapsteel guitar for christmas (and I bought another one a few weeks later- you kind of need a few to investigate different tunings)… And Im determined to learn. Anyway, cut a long story short.. my letter was printed, god-dammit!
And here it is!
