The moderate consumption of alcohol can be enjoyable, but Fiddlerman does not recommend that abstaining individuals should commence consuming alcohol. Consuming alcohol more than moderately increases the risk of both short and long-term harm to health.
Please consult your doctor for medical issues regarding drinking alcohol and your health or medication. 🙂
ROFL ROFL - man - so true - OK - Picture This. Come to MY timezone on New Year's Eve - Barry and Mandy lined up an SJ session which, was still in 2016 their time.... but it was already 2am Jan 1st 2017 here. By the time they finished - it was 3am here. And it STILL wasnt 2017 over there ! LOL! But - I couldn't let 'em down so I jumped-on to SJ and I did my best ( OK, I had HAD a few "wee drams" by then, but was still capable of playing just as badly as I usually do. Cool... ) BUT - sure - I was "winging it" - normally I get the webcam set up and everything - and have a plan, and a set-list - this was "impromptu" and off-the-cuff - so I grabbed the USB stdio mic and relied on the lappy inbuilt cam - that of course meant I had to remain seated whilst playing.... I generally HATE THAT - but I did it - well - cos it was New Years - and we're all "family" so to speak.... Hahahah - I struggled through a few tunes with my darned elbow hitting my knee ( it's a low chair ) - I was even reduced to "half-kneeling" with my right-leg-knee on the floor - didn't help much really...
Eventually - I got fed-up with that and actually stood-up and tried to point the lappy cam towards me - NOT MY BEST EFFORT !!!
I put my relative failure ( well, it wasn't THAT bad ) - yes - down to a mix of un-preparedness and the presence of "more than a certain amount ( but not by not much, truly ) of alcohol" in my blood-stream
Actually - it was a GREAT event - I even stayed up until 5am to catch Barry on guitar and followed by another one of my fav vocalists - It has been a LONG time since I pulled a 24-hour day - caught 5hrs sleep and was back up and around come 10am New Years Day -
But yes - I look at the alcohol thing like this - "KNOW YOUR LIMITS" - and most assuredly - do not drive if under the influence - absolutely, do not do it.... (Oh - play fiddle if you want to - but I probably advise against that as well)
Yeah... Be Aware....
I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh -
Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)
