This was an experiment in trying to catch the faces of the public as I busked. It didn't really work but I quite like the raw sound that I came up with.

A real nice job on a great tune. I remember this song from 1972 (I think). I was 22. These days I can't just hear certain songs as just songs; they take me back to when I first heard the tune and I don't resist. Kind of a time machine. Thanks for posting.

Nice. Love the banner for "Coventry's Best Jobs" in the background. You've probably got one right there Pete......

Cheers Davey, i think I made just over £70 but it was just too darn cold to carry on. The tips of my fingers were just too painful!

Pretty much the same as yours I believe. It's an Amati ATS 21 and the serial number dates it to 1960. I love it!
I was wondering just cause it looked like an Amati.
I play an ATS-61. It's an 80's horn but it still holds up the Amati name darn well.

RE gloves. I have a fairly thick pair that I've gotten used to. It's a little awkward for the first few minutes but after that it evens out. No chopped fingers. I can play oleo with them in 0 degree weather no problem so they must work.

Thanks for that Colin, I like the look of the thin silk gloves. My hands are quite thick and there's not enough room between my palm and the palm keys to accommodate a pair of woolly gloves, I have tried but I just get unwanted squeaks from touching the palm keys!
I don't busk in the cold often enough to be really bothered by it.

Better on your own. No sharing.
I know - I barely get that much when gigging with the band! But I really would struggle as I have a phobia of shopping centres (agoraphobia!), but maybe busking would cure that as playing usually cures all my other worries.....I'm determined to try it this summer! :thumb:
