Fun Facts:
* Aeroplane is a guitar piece in a non-standard tuning – DADFCE.
* A man called Hum showed George this tuning at party in Exeter in about 1994 or 1995.
* Lovely as it was, George found it very hard to write something within its confines until late 1996.
* Aeroplane was the first tune George wrote upon moving to Prague, near the Pražského Povstání metro station.
* He says “There wasn’t too much else to do when I first got there, with just an acoustic and the World Service for company.”
* Phil the Fiddle played some lovely soaring thermals during the frequent Doctor Watson performances on Karlov Most.
* When it was time to record Aeroplane, no fiddle player was available.
* Lucy stepped in and did much the same kind of thing on her 150-year-old blonde cello, which shook the whole room with its magnificence.
* George drew inpiration for this piece from his first ever flight, looking down on London and the clouds for the first time.
* He describes the flight as “being on this big metal thing that I couldn’t possibly lift, held in the sky with magic.”
* Aeroplane is dedicated to Jana “Sweet Jane” Koubova, who helped with the Czech language and was George’s first native Czech friend.
