    I have until the new year to give them an answer Luke as they’ve (sensibly) realised that not much is going to happen over the next two weeks of Christmas. After the new year it’ll be all systems go! I’m leaning towards it as it great fun making a noise with others!
    And no...I don’t have Keith’s “gnarled hands” - ALL of me is beautiful!! lolololol (In my dreams only!)

Oh, and a piano accordion - but trying to play that feels like I'm wrestling with an octopus!

    Most all gigs on Saturday nights. My wife is not really into it, but I've explained that it's my only real hobby, so she is agreeable to a point. She comes to gigs occasionally, but not alone, only when other friends want to check out our band. Just be sure to do fun stuff (with her!) on the Saturday nights you are NOT playing.

    Congratulations!

    I think you're doing the right thing. You might regret it later, if you don't take it up. You don't want to be wondering what might have been.

    Congratulations! I find it hard to believe that youíve never been in a group before.

    Didnít realize that there are country bands in the UK.

    Saw your Eko 12 string in your sig; a frend of mine had a solid body silver metal flake 4 pickup Eko with push button pickup selector in the 60ís.

    How exciting! I say go for it! If it becomes too much, or it doesn't work out, you can always stop. I'll bet it will be energizing and fun! Congrats!

    ampeep & chopped liver - thanks for both your comments which are appreciated. EKO still produce guitars in Italy and there are one or two distributors here in the U.K. but they’re hard to find. I don’t know what they’re like today, but back in the 70’s when I bought mine they were tremendous value for money with excellent built quality, sound and playability. I love my old girl and she’s looking pretty darn good for being nearly 50 years old! lol
