I was once threatened by the Yakuza in Tokyo to stop busking in their territory.
We played at a rabbi's house to the elderley. We were wearing ridiculous costumes and playing insane songs. You can imagine the reaction! But we kept going. Yessssss
My first guitar i bought at an op shop. It was a kids guitar tuned up a 1/5th to A. I didn't know this at the time. I wrote my songs real high to fit the key, so high I had to change my voice into something closer to a muppet. Finally I bought a normal guitar so I have been able to drop my voice down. if you'd like to hear the muppet high pitched voice, my older songs are at www.littlefrog.tv.
