Tin Pan Alley

Today and tomorrow I'm going to take you down London's Tin Pan Alley - Denmark Street, Today's shot is inside one of the oldest shops in the road, Andy's Guitar Shop. This is where to bring your guiitar to get it fixed, properly. I bought my own 1950's Eko Maccaferri copy here 25 years ago (gulp - looks like I may have a bit of a classic on my hands). Here, it's all about music. Want to see one of their rare guitars on sale? This is one made by Chris Jagger, Mick Jagger's brother. Yes, that one.

Wonder if you'll snap any rock stars on your travels?

Ah yes, many an hour spent looking through the windows down that way. Bizarrely I think "Andy's" is probably the only shop round there that I've not ever bought anything from!

Looks like the ideal spot for a music fan.

Walked past a couple of times and never been in. It's good to see the inside.

years ago I used to play in a music group. And I always dreamed of a real Fender.:)

Great maccaferri photo! I'd love to see more of those musical instruments.
