Oh Tosh, I looked for "'Ector the 'Ero" mando 2 on the site, but did not find it. So perhaps you can include it on the CD of GP5 files you are compiling.

Thanks, Cliff

Thanks, Cliff

I've checked my archive folders and emails, and can't find it either. I checked under "H" as well!

Yeah! the fry up at half time was very welcome. I'm normally starving by the time I get back after our sessions :lol: (sorry Chris - running joke bout anything B***o related!)

But seriously - we were a bit more back to basics than normal and that worked very well...

Have you heard that our Eltham division has raised the Instrumental arms race to electric with effects :shock:

Many thanks for today, enjoyed it. I would ask everyone to try and work with a metronome, I know some people don't enjoy the experience but it does help and those that think they can play fast can't play slowly...!!!!!! It's an art in itself.
Anyway the next meeting is on the 10th June, 10.00am - 2.00pm at Westbourne Rehearsals, Royal Oak.
Have a happy long Bank Holiday.........

But Tosh, the only instrument I can play along to a metronome is a banjo!

According to the 'Ten Commandments for Jamming' (Which are applicable to our group) the First Commandment is:

Thou shalt not ever forsake the beat.

The eighth says:

Thou shalt not speed up or slow down accidentally when playing a tune, for it is an abomination. (See commandment I)

We should listen to the Tosh, for he speaks very wisely :smile:

The metronome is being dusted off, and put to work :grin:
