The tune that is yours and mine to play upon this earth
Right, as Sherlock noticed tonight, I'm always a bit late home on a Thursday.
This is because, all those weeks ago when I went for a drink on my own, I found a little pub that has an open mic night on a Thursday. And it seemed...nice. Quiet, friendly, a mix of talent. And Jo and Lisa recently asked if I would play a few songs at their wedding reception.
When Jo and I first met I was still playing a lot - to audiences. I suppose she thought I still was. Anyway, I sort of agreed, but then I wanted a bit of practice, where no one I knew would be watching.
So I decided to give it a go for a while. Didn't bank on Sherlock, PI, rumbling me quite so soon.
These are three of the songs Jo and Lisa have asked me to do. First one is quite upbeat. I don't play it quite this fast...
This next one, I don't think I have to put the words with it for you lot...and I don't play half as well as this guy. But I shall indeed be singing...
And finally, my favourite of all that they've asked me to do. Obviously I don't do it as beautifully as she sings...but, er...I try.
