    The Covid regulations here have just been relaxed to the point where six people can now gather in a garden for the first time in about a year - so gather we did. Much wine was consumed. The guy playing bass is actually our drummer who has never played it in 'public' before and the chap playing cahon is our friend Jon from Iceland. It's a long time since I tried to play when as drunk as that - operating the camera and setting up the amps was challenge enough!

    Sounds like you are just the right amount drunk to me. Awesome job and nice singing.

    What do you call that little clicky thing in the singers hand? Sounds cool.

    It's a child's percussion instrument like they use in schools. In my area people put things they don't want out in boxes by their front gate so they can be taken by anyone who does and that's where it came from. It's quite good because a full tambourine is too loud for playing like this. View attachment 845036

    Yes! it is a Vox Pathfinder 15R. It's a mystery to me why they discontinued them. They were amazing for the cheap price (£85 0r $100 ish) that they cost. The case and fittings are all proper Vox livery in the correct materials. You can find the Pathfinder 10s but they aren't the same at all. It has an actual spring reverb, tremolo and a proper guitar 'voice'. I think they are hard to find now. Here's a video of 'Sleepwalk' I made with it...

    Great stuff, as mentioned above, optimum drunk can be a good thing.
    A bit bloody cold for that though this morning, it was snowing here earlier.

    Cheers,
    Graham.

    I love it! Cool guitar playing, great singing, tight band... and he caught the thingy at the end! (By the way, I wish I was that coherent when drunk...) :)

    P.s.: with "thight band" I meant, that you played well together. English is not my first language and I realised, that could mean two things. But as you said: you were also "tight"...

    It had snowed here the day we did it -we had to take cover for a while! .... and it was pretty cold. After a year of lockdown though we didn't let it stop us lol.
