And thanks for the spoiler alert, James!
That's undeservedly flattering, guitareleven! I suppose the "it" in this case is that all the clues relate to classical guitar. (Perhaps you might find Rory John's method helpful - settle down with "a nice mug of tea and a modest stack of digestive biscuits"). I wouldn't want you to be bored and I have great faith in the high intellectual level of members of this august forum that none of the clues are beyond them. Nevertheless, all will be revealed next week and if people want to know "how did you arrive at that?" I'll be more than happy to explain.guitareleven wrote:I used to rate various newspaper's usual crosswords from those that you can do just in your head while looking a them, through those which it's safe to approach using a pen, to those for which it is advisable to use a pencil (i.e., for erasability along the way) . But then, beyond that category, there was the London Times, which fosters an approach to crossword culture about which there is a general "it" to "get" in order to do them. Often the procedure for me resolved down to looking at the answers and seeing if I could figure out how the given clue related. Just at a cursory glance, yours seems to be approaching that category- on a quick perusal, there was only one that I got. I'll have to come back to this later on...
