Used to busk in Galway. It was great! It had a pedestrianised main street so it was an easy, comfortable place to play, never any real hassle.
Recently auditioned for work on a cruise ship. Was preparing for months for it trying to learn popular songs. Had a nervous attack and completely clammed up - couldn't think of anything to play when they requested certain types of song. My brain just went blank, complete nightmare!
Huss and Dalton TD-M, Adirondack (red spruce) top. My inanimate girlfriend, the 'Hussy'.
I have a cheap Yamaha I use for outdoors and altered tunings. It's stood up to the worst of abuse, love it.
I also have a Casio PX-3 e-piano I might crack out on streetjelly at some stage. Be warned.
NB/ Hussy's intonation is out needing new nut/saddle, so using my Yamaha at the moment.
“You made my heart sing.”
“I bow to your Godliness.”
