How long did it take you to compile all this, Gerard?

Thanks to all for the appreciation.
I had been toying with the idea in my head for quite some time and mentally collecting the information I knew, but before I started writing I thought that it would be quite a short article with just a few basic comments on each instrument. When I started searching for the pictures and a few more details to complement what I already knew I learnt many things I did not know and the thing got longer and longer, it was great fun working on it Tongue
Let's say that from the moment I started writing and collecting pictures until I posted it a few weeks and some sleepless nights have passed LOL

Holy smokes, well done.  I loved the keyboard section which I was at least somewhat familiar with.  Once I realized that you went into the other instruments, I realized 'I've got to get back to work'.  Let's just say that I know what I'm reading tonight after the family goes to bed.

Thanks Jim,

Not being English perhaps the expression 'upside-down' is not really the correct one, I meant this



Should I have said 'from behind', 'flipped over' or something else? or I can add the picture so people will get what I meant, I have this one and i think that also some of his knife-stabbing.

In any case it's a good suggestion to include a reference to Emerson's spinning piano, I'l do an edit in the piano entry, I have pictures already Tongue

And I'm of course open to remarks, corrections or criticisms, during my research I found contradictory information regarding certain subjects and at some point I had to choose for the version which seemed most logical or reliable, but there can certainly be mistakes and if anyone finds one I'm happy to edit.

I think what he wrote was more than fine - now I realise it was a reference to the generalised L100 abuse, as opposed to what I thought he meant, I have removed the post as promised

Nice!!! 

There are a few things that could be added though: fretless basses, such as Gary Willis' bass, en Percy Jones, and the double necks that Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson used in the 70's
