      The weather has been dreadful today so I’ve decided to upload the latest tune I’ve been learning. I don’t think Jason teaches this one but I came across it on youtube and managed to write my own tab, so feeling a bit chuffed with myself. Not perfect yet but getting there 🙂

      From your accent, I’d say you are a two hundred miles north of me, so I’ll boast and say that our weather is wonderful at present!


      @bluegrassgal
      , that is so good! You are one of my key inspiration figures, really.

      When you are playing, are you reading the tab? It’s wonderful that you can play without looking at your fingers! I’m trying to get to that stage, but not there at all yet.

      So good. Take care.

        Ha ha yes it’s grim up North, the sun did come out later but so did the hail!
        I am reading the tab on this one as I have only just learnt it this week. I don’t usually video myself until I’ve learnt it by heart but I just wanted to see how it sounded.
        I did look at my fingers to begin with but have trained myself not to do this now because I sometimes wear contact lenses and I can’t see close up when wearing them or maybe I’m just getting older, also I think it helps with the tuning.
        Be good to see one of your videos when you’re ready, glad to be an inspiration to you.

      Very impressive for just learning the song! I wish I could play at that speed, but it just gets messy!
