*One of Huw’s hobbies was learning to read and write classical music. At home he practised with his Levin, but while in USA with Widowmaker in 1977, he missed his guitar on his days off and purchased this Ovation. At home and on tour this was the guitar that Huw practised scales on. The Aeolian scale was one his favourites can be heard on the Hawkwind ‘Levitation’ album. Huw’s playing on this album was reviewed as neo-classical, both harmonic and melodic. He always put that down to continued practising of scales
