Additional info Mark appeared in the program Tomorrows World, broadcasted by the BBC, 28th April 1993. Mark tested a special guitar on which you can learn to play the guitar. Lights are embedded in the neck to show you how to play chords. And with the special buttons on the body, you can select various scales and chords. In the end, they asked Mark what he thinks of it. He said: "It wouldn't be for me because I am not really a join the dots player." When Mark is later asked to play a bit on it of his own choice and that he could decide if he plays with the lights on or off, he said: "Well, if all the lights are on, I just start to cry and then I can't see my chords through my tears."
