    Some videos don't show up on tablets when embedded. Vimeo is one that doesn't so I always try and remember to add a plain link underneath when I embed a Vimeo video. It's the same on the harmonica forum which uses different forum software than UU so it's not specifically UU nor is it about being blocked in a particular country. In the latter case there's usually a message on the video when you try to play it

    We're staying in caravan park at Seal Rocks NSW.
    Went over to have our evening meal in the camp kitchen.
    There was a guy there playing guitar (quite well too). I got talking, Had a go of his guitar and told him I now play uke more often than guitar. Went back to get my Flea - which always travels with me - and we had a bit of a jam.
    When he left I kept playing and singing a little too. 6 other cookers and diners came and I just kept on playing while my wife prepared our meal (we take turns with meal duty). Some of them were humming along and tapping their feet.
    One lady asked if I was professional muso - which boosted my ego considerably. When we left all three couples thanked me for the music and said how much they enjoyed it.
    Not something I often do but I was pleased enough with the reaction to share it here.

    Nice to feel appreciated, isn't it.

    And, I'd agree with that woman, you certainly play like a 'pro'.

    Nice Pa. We were camping last month and was asked to put it away. At least they were polite about it. Guess I need more practice.

    So is that you doing the voice over?

    Thats great Brian. You do sing and play like a pro. I woulda been joining in too! I went to my granddaughters chorus concert the other night and a little guy had his uke out strumming something while he patiently waited for the concert to start. That put a big smile on my face
    Only wish I was so brave. Im afraid Id come off annoying!

    Nah. I'm just happy they didn't dub over me when I was speaking Japanese in the car park.

    An evening around the camp kitchen with an impromptu concert by Pa sounds like a special night to me! It's nice to get some positive feedback from an appreciative audience.

    I did some impromptu backyard BBQ performances this summer and got some similar responses. It was a group of my wife's horse set and I did a couple of horse related numbers that went over particularly well. "Since She Started to Ride" by Jonathan Richman and "She Loves to Ride Horses" by Guy Clark had them rolling in the aisles and begging for encores. That was a hoot!
