Crossing the line!
Ahhh … the Joys of an Open Session! 🙁
Imagine that you are playing a few tunes with the lads at your local session & someone sitting next to you, suddenly grabs your hand - in the middle of a tune & says your not playing it right & starts moving your hand in what they deem to be the correct manner …….. pray tell, what would be your reaction?
Now imagine that you are actually a teenage girl & this bloke is a complete stranger!
Well, I kid you not, this is exactly what happened at our session last night.
So, would you be surprised to learn that this girl was very upset by this experience and that the bloke was immediately ordered to leave the Bar, by both the girls Dad & the Pub Owners?
I reckon he should count himself very lucky, that his nose is still in one piece today!
Fortunately for us though, nearly everyone who joins in with our sessions up here, displays enough musicality & common sense to be made welcome & is usually encouraged to return, at their earliest opportunity.
However, I guess you can’t win ‘em all!
