You forgot the bit about pap singing it.

 Keep this sort of stuff up, please.  Lowering expectations is going to help me immeasurably.

What is a band with a vicious split... I think i know just the man for guitar, and songwriting to cause disharmany and the evential split... i'll bring my Rickenbackers...

 Of course! Chutnet and his guitars! I imagine you as someone who can actually play well. And alongside Pap's dodgy strumming on his Strat, there's enivtably going to be a lot of tension in this band....

 John Fogarty, CCR's main songwriter, is possibly the most shat upon mush in music.

 No, that would be Carl Perkins.

Think @Coxford_lou knows me too well, I'd love to learn the drums or the guitar.

Surely the bassist has the easiest job in a group, 3 chords, 4 strings that's all.

 I have learnt I have amazing musical talent. It's called Mic  Drop & crowds (and karaoke DJs) go nuts when I do it.

Fowllyd - I see as the dude on the ukulele wanting to sing folk songs, but slightly drowned out by the noise Pap's making on that guitar, and Rallyboy on the bongos.

Well played OSD, whilst anything with electricity is not normally my cup of tea, I tapped my feet to that (and that cleaner Soundcloud version)

Two recommendations - get that bassist in and get them to layer some vocals on yours. 

He/she can do the filling-in and harmony bits. 

You'll have a much fuller sound then.

Good onya for sharing.

 Thing is Lou, this is nothing compared to what could happen if you were, like ...all .. er into star signs and shit.

Strange you should say that, Lou. It's actually Bletch down to a tee.

 Thanks for that! Was hoping for exactly that vibe cool

Yes, bassist on board - check / background vocals - questionable

We had to do the recording as is to enter a national Battle of the Bands down here in Oz, which I am proud to say we got in to!!

Thus the reason for the thin demo and lack of bassist on the trial live run video.

We are rocking it out on the 1st of September, so I'll naturally keep you all informed of our adventure.

Thank you all for the kind words and support laughing

I  broke with my usual tradition and sung acapella, to the delight of my colleagues.

Be warned.   It may happen tomorrow.   Or actually today,  as timing dictates.

 If you change your seat to Chapel End you could practice singing solo all afternoon
