Returning to YouTube

I learnt to play guitar and ukulele in front of a YouTube audience, with mixed results to say the least!

From guitar-strap fetishists to German Razorlight fans, I used to demo fragments of new songs for these people, and bash out the occasional catastrophic cover.

Doing covers helped me learn chords and generate ideas for songs of my own. Now I live on my own I can be a bit more spontaneous with playing and practicing. I still get nervous when I’m recording though – if I near the end of a song without a terrible, obvious mistake my pulse quickens; will I make it? Nine times out of ten it’s a no…

But here you go. My return to YouTube. I find it really hard to look at the camera and sing this one, particularly as my face screws up horrendously when I’m performing it.
