Practice

I'm playing again soon, and this time some of it is going to be more guitar-based. I was a bit concerned that my fretwork might be getting a bit too arthritic to hold it together, but I don't seem to be doing too badly.

Rock On! And eat cranberries, ginger and cinnamon to aid any onset of athritis.

Wow. I like. Any chance of some (well all og it actually) of 'The Devil went down to Georgia'? x

Trousers me old : It seems that you have an Irish streak within.
Love it I did.

Aye, lakeviewer, though if I were trying to be clever I'd say more like "rock" on, it feels more like I'm paraphrasing it if you see what I mean. Perhaps I won't try to be clever.

Thanks for the tip too: although I do wonder if I'm noticing some early signs of arthritis (as opposed to being a total hypochondriac about it), my description of my guitar playing isn't meant to be quite as literal as I made it sound. Still, I do drink plenty of cranberry juice and have ginger in my food...

Deej, thank you. I would have to look "The Devil Went..." on youtube/spotify to even remember it, I'm afraid to say. I may yet do so.

Thank you too zola - if there is an Irish streak, it's as yet unknown to me though :)

Fire Byrd, I was just reading/commenting on your post around the same time you must have put your comment here. Credit where it's due to Mr Manilow, the fact that he's a Tom Waits fan. I can't deny him that.

zhisou - well now you can, with Fret With Trousers - the self-help approach to guitar playing. Or perhaps not...

RAWK may be just as ironic as "rock", but there's something (for me) more geekily detached about the latter, which suits. I'm being pedantic about this, clearly :)

Thanks for the other comments too, B, much appreciated.
