    It's all about getting together and having some fun whilst playing music.
    We have a spreadsheet on the go where people choose what songs they would like to play and others, who want to, add their names to it. With around 20 people coming to play that gives a wide variation in participants (except for @simoncroft who picks up most of the other playing parts that don't get filled and @Malurkey and his sister Joyce who sing all the songs that others can't, won't or shouldn't!)

    I also forgot to mention that there will be a get together in the evening at a local Indian restaurant for those who want to.

    In essence it's all about meeting like minded people and having a bit of a jam and some good laughs, followed by a curry and probably a few beers! What's not to like? :D

    Yes. PLEASE NOTE. I'm not as efficient (generous?) as Andrea so you will need to bring your own alcohol please. Plenty of off-license shops around the area and there is a fridge in the kitchen adjacent to our studio. :D

    I'm all set just booked my flights, wasn't to bad either allowing me to fly into London and leave out of Manchester for €66 (and not having to fly with Ireland's biggest cheapskate) now for somewhere to rest my head, having a look at hotels near the studio and restaurant.

    yes I think if I take the neck off I can bring it as carry on luggage, I got a lot to do before I get there and the big one is putting together the "Simoncaster" but I'm ready to kick into gear after the holidays, I got some crazy pickup combinations I want to do so we'll see how it goes, but I'm looking forward to giving it a go. I'm ready to make big things happen this year so stand back i'm coming in hot!

    That might be a sensible option George! No need to rush around then or worry about getting back on time! :D
    A few have booked through AirBnB...

    Joyce and I had a listen, and she says that if this is the key it will be played in she'll be fine.

    Great stuff! That is the original key.
    I did take a listen to our aborted attempt in Simon's Movies thread and Joyce's voice does seem low (but in tune perfectly) but I suspect that was because the monitors were almost non-existent and the fact that the music was, unfortunately, pretty much unrehearsed. We must do a quick run through of the more demanding songs next time....

    I think someone mentioned being able/willing to play slide?
    If so there are a couple of songs on the spreadsheet that need your input please. :D :D

    Main solo at 1:52


    Solo at 1:36



    I'll play lead if slide doesn't happen...
