Arrrr, me hearties, and 'tis another year gone.   Here be yer chance to play a few sea-shanties for the yearly ITLAPD event !

The actual "day" is 19th September so this just be a-reminding ye bilge rats that it be a-comin' round soon, although ye can be adding a fiddle tune to this thread any time you like.

If you can run-off a quick sea-going or in any way sea-related tune, and just post it here, that would be a blast !    

Heyyy - anything will do - this was my 2014 submission - dressing-for the part is not mandatory, but does bring some fun into it ! - 

Heave-ho and avast ye swabs - yer Cap'n Grey Beard ( aka BillyG )

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh - guntohead.JPG

I am 1) online, 2) and have a recording device and 3) can move my bad shoulder again with pain levels less than 5. I think I may try to play a song for one of my favorite days!!  [fingers crossed]

Ahhh @dionysia - "pain levels less than 5"  ( that still makes me go "ouch" LOL ) - glad to hear there's some improvement in the shoulder !

Would be great if you can take part - but in doing so, please don't exacerbate the injury / pain !

Arrrrr, crew mate, just be a-doin' the best ye can !
