Thanks chaps for your encouragement! You may regret it though....
I did get one of those Blackstar Fly thingies and it works well for my purposes and the delay does help the sound of the guitar quite a bit. Deffo won't be amassing a collection pedals! Ordered some slightly heavier strings which are now on their way.
Have posted a choon with some restrained Teletwiddles in the Plucky duck. Listen at your peril.

Nice purchase Mr ocarolan. Bob Dylan went to a leccie so why not us. I've got Ernie Ball 'Not even slinky' 12-56 on mine but tuned down a tone or sometimes 3 semitones depending on what whim takes me. A bit beefier under the fingers than nines or tens.....but with a similar tension of 10s with the downtuning. Anyway...have fun with it.
NewDave: I'm going to the shop to buy ice cream. And I'm probably going to eat it all in one sitting. So there.

NewDave: Stockpile food in preparation for next year and buy anything you need that has to come from outside of the UK asap. Next year is going to be hell and people will be shopping for Xmas at the same time as trying to prepare for no-deal or tiny deal Brexit.

NewDave: If you start now and buy a few extra things every week then not only will you have a respectable store cupboard by November and so avoid the panic buying, you'll also put a lot less strain on the system and make life a bit easier for everyone else.

NewDave: And if a miracle happens and you don't need it you can always donate to a food bank. They'll need it.

NewDave: Or I suppose you could "Check. Change. Go." But personally I don't think that's going to help you very much since no-one seems to know what to check, how to change or where to go.

NewDave: I'm fat, I'm over fifty and I'm about to go out on some roller skates.

robmc: I was a child of the early 80s... It was all about Evel Knievel and roller skates. Had a bad accident concerning my buttocks...

NewDave: Tell us more....

ocarolan: I expect he just fell over and rectum.

robmc: Well close Keith, I was on roller skates being towed down a hill by my friend on a bike, for extra speed...you can guess the rest
Aug 4, 2020 18:04:31 GMT
robmc: Dinner break over... Roller skates out from under me, 80s short shorts offering little protection, skin removed from half way up my thighs and both cheeks. Disinfectant stung just a wee bit.
Aug 4, 2020 18:44:49 GMT
robmc: And to make it worse, half way through my mother applying the disinfectant, my brother and the girl from next door, who we both liked, came in to see the show.

scorpiodog: Rob, you do, you realise, now have to write a song about the incident. With all the embarrassing details.
Aug 5, 2020 11:19:58 GMT
ocarolan: That'll be a cracking song alright!
Aug 5, 2020 11:40:29 GMT
NewDave: Ouch. What hurt more, your pride or your legs?

martinrowe: 'Slippin and a Slidin'
Aug 5, 2020 13:18:01 GMT
robmc: I don't know Paul, it's all still pretty raw... Although, how about 'Nevermind the Buttocks'. Dave, legs and bum definitely hurt more than pride, although my pride still hurt!

scorpiodog: Yes, Rob. I can see you in a Sex Pistols tribute band. Or you could do a Tony Bennett and use "I scraped my arse and banned machismo".
Aug 6, 2020 10:59:16 GMT
NewDave: Or you could do the Sarah Brightman classic, I lost my arse to a starship trooper.

robmc: Interesting suggestions, I'll work on my own magnum opus and simply call it 'Skidmarks'
