Have you ever considered doing live gigs using a Boss Loop station type thing?

That would be so awesome, I'd travel all the way upto Dublin just to see it! If you're living in Dublin that is!

been thinking about it yeah ... need to get a loop pedal first though, and my own banjo (this one's a loan ) but it's feasible.
I'm in Kinvara, Galway

Was only talking to a taxi driver last night about Galway and how i need to spend a weekend up there.

Heard so much great things about the place from friends that went up there, I've only ever passed through on a bus but its a lovely spot.

I'm probably a bit over enthusiastic, but I have serious respect for you already, I think you're extremely talented.

And I'm really looking forward to seeing more from you in the future!

(okay i think I've totally just "fangirled" as Mr. Vestek would say!)

quick question to the admins, would it be cool to post new covers in this thread when they're out. I make 1 every two weeks at the moment.

I think you'll be fine!

This is your thread at the end of the day.

PM Ciderman if you want full clarification!
