 Highly recommend taking a basic acoustic away with you on your jollies if possible,

We have been down  rain sodden , Gail blowing , flooded fields Cornwall for 3 weeks camping / caravaning.

No WiFi, no tv and had to drive up the road to get a phone signal.......

Loved the acoustic , boy does it make you focus on bad technique , for the first time in ages I actually loved playing .



Can do the same in the house, just keep away from internet , Facebook and tv and get back to playing 🎸🎸🎸🎸 😀

Sounds like you had a good time. I keep threatening to get a nice acoustic someday.

If you lend someone ?20 and never see that person again, it was probably well worth it.

Whilst wearing a Hobnail Boot??

Believe me, my technique, which has now deserted me thankfully..... was worse than that!!
