Here's our little family band with my son doing wonderful stuff on the guitar while I strummed away merrily in the background. We're in the back room of a pub in Wales, UK which I thought you might like to have a look at.

It was an open mic night and we played Sunny Afternoon (Kinks) and Rhythm is a Dancer. And they clapped! Woohoo!!!!!

Heh heh... I love these micro-concert reports!
Back rooms in Welsh pubs, a pint of ale and some ukelele wailing in the background. Great stuff.

As a father of 3 adult kids, it is so cool to see you playing with your son! You have to be one happy camper! Please do a video!

Thank you all for your lovely comments. I don't have a camcorder, but hope to soon put that right now that the Flip Ultra has hit these shores.

My fingers forget what to do with themselves when people are watching me. I performed on stage with a uke once... not plugged or mic'ed, with other players that were, so no one heard me, thank goodness. All the better because I was told the wrong chords. :rolleyes:

Congrats on your first performance. If you're in Wales, there's a uke luthier in your neck of the woods. If he decides to drop in to the pub, you'll certainly be among friends!
