If Only I..written 68/69. John Martyn liked this song,I showed him how to play it, but he didn't record it
just used the guitar parts to write his own song. So he said.
The Last Dance played on the Cedar top Fylde guitar. The piece uses a very guitaristic ,though simple
musical device, of supporting phrases in different registers.
I wrote this piece thinking of the great times I spent making music with Dick
Heckstall-Smith. In 3-Space, Dave Moore was on keyboards , Chris Billings was in the original
line-up. Chris a multi-talented man, who wrote and arranged music on many different instruments, also built
electric & acoustic guitars.
