Saturday Saturday

Thank goodness for these. It’s fun going back through them. I’d forgotten most of them. The top one sprung from my abject guitar playing. I still like to pick it up and strum but I’ve taken to playing the ‘fake’ tough chords. No I won’t be touring with Van Halen anytime soon. And yes ThreeContinue reading “Saturday Saturday”
