That would be too easy for you lot. That’s why we’re doing it with pictures instead.
Any idea which song Richard is playing above? If nobody guesses correctly, we’ll have another screenshot from the same song tomorrow.

Congratulations to all those who guessed ‘The Blue’ yesterday.
I’ll be announcing the 54 Canadian cinemas involved in the fantastic forthcoming (interactive and High Definition, don’t forget) event, ‘Remember That Night: David Gilmour Live at The Royal Albert Hall’, tomorrow night.
Thank you all for your patience. I hope that the list will please you.
The chatroom will also be open tomorrow, between the hours of 11AM and 1PM (UK time). I hope to see lots of you there.
Here are some of Phil Manzanera’s answers to your questions.
Why do you think there are so few ’emerging’ guitarists – unlike your good self and David, to name two personal favourites – who capture the public’s attention? (You may disagree, of course!) (Martin D)
There are lots of very good guitarists around, but because the way the media industry is now, it’s difficult for them to get noticed. Also, the guitar solo became unfashionable, so restricting the guitarist’s creative development. However, if you listen to my new radio series on Planet Rock, ‘A is for Axe: The A-Z of Great Guitarists’, starting on 5 August for 12 weeks, you will hear some great young ones, as well as the vintage players… two of which are your ‘personal favourites’.
How much of an album is experimentation and how much is instinct? (Lucia)
Instinct combines with experimentation in the creative process, but inspiration is the key factor.
