Mrclose2u are you perhaps a salesman? ah ha... very convincing.. I will do a first performance for sure. I will start by downloading Zoom on my laptop... I don't know if I the laptop's mic would be good enough to perform. I do have Focuserite Solo Studio but no mic stand and not sure how it all works...will be looking into this in the New Year, and might ask you guys questions on the technical thread in the future.

I've actually listened to many of your performances from open mic 1 to the last one... as I get myself ready to do it myself, you have all improved.  And I did listen to the entire livestream with Justin...that was impressive.  I will start with open mic then maybe livestream.. my friends have encouraged me to do a livestream just for them, to try it out.

Thanks for all the appreciation and comments from everybody who has participated and watched the recording after the event. It is greatly appreciated.

The more the merrier.  I hope this conversation will encourage more people to participate in the next, either as performer or audience member.

Watch for a rehearsal video in the New Year.

Fabulous, Sandra, it will be grand to have you performing in future!

@Richard ... I shall own my position as one of the kettles, but appears as if you may be a pot yourself LOL All good, my friend!

Another very entertaining live set - a little bit of everything - enjoyed the banter along with the music. Well done everyone for putting on a great show.

Thanks Paraic.

I hope you'll consider joining in as a performer again in 2022. I think the number of folk living further east is growing that will support setting a time that is convenient ie not a 6am local start

Thanks Toby and David
I would love to take part again. I guess you arrange 6 of these a year - so maybe once a year from this side of the world would be good. The problem is when the time is set to accommodate here - it prevents others in the States and Canada from performing. If there were more performers from this side it would seem more fair. As far as I am aware, I think RFW and ynot are also close to this timezone - and they are both hinting at joining in - so if we have a bigger group wanting to perform on this side - then maybe it will make more sense to occasionally arrange a show for this side.

I was thinking a little more about and wondered if we had started this last one at say 21:00/9pm UTC, then it would have been 8am Sunday morning on the eastern side of Australia, 11pm for me, 1-4pm in USA/Canada but 6am for you. Would that time accommodate, participation from out west and east?

Assuming not, then my wish would be to be able to alternate the timing to make it convenient, to take turns accommodating those west and then those east. Of course, I'm acutely aware of how fortunate I am to be in South Africa and accommodated either way.

And perhaps one day, numbers will grow to the point where we have enough interest and numbers that we could have three regional events.

But for now, we'll just call for interest from all and then settle the timing in as most fair and equitable manner possible. And as we did so previously those in USA & Canada were supportive of the approach.

Finally found time to watch the video, I was away this time and was unable to watch live.

Great job by all the performers, really well done. A great variety of material.

Special shout out to Richard, I’d forgotten about Almost With You by the Church, haven’t heard it for a while.
It’s now on my to learn list.

Thanks again and congrats to everyone.

That would be great, thanks.

I found some tabs online and played along with the original and it was pretty close for the verse/chorus. But the solo was all over the place.
