Genre: Unknown/None Chosen / Playing Style: Bluegrass (Scruggs)

Found this recording made on a cassette walkman in 1990. I used to play every Sunday afternoon at Berowra Waters Teahouse, north of Sydney overlooking the car ferry, with my buddy Andy LeBrocque on guitar. So the quality is scratchy and the playing a bit dodgey, but hey, it was a great gig at a great place (dunno if it's still there.)

That's groovy - and there were even punters listening and clapping and stuff. It's great to be able to listen back on stuff you've done in the past cause it gives an insight into advancements in playing technique. All tunes and songs tend to take on a life of their own after a while.

The Berowra Waters Teahouse - must have been a cool gig. I remember Sydney use to have all those sort of places to play -overlooking the water, Watsons Bay pub, etc. Melbourne's not quite as blessed in the picturesque stakes, although I did play the front bar at the Esplanade in Melbourne for around eight years on Sat arvos and the view was good (inside as well !).
