I've played drums for years, but now I'm too old and fat. I've played guitar for years but only REALLY started to play since 2015. I can't list any gigs, unless "open mic nights" count, in which case I've done about 160. I own one cheap acoustic guitar and one cheap Cajon. I am old and slightly barmy. So there.

Like a fraud .... Hmmm, edit.... Mad.

It's driving me mad.
Talent and ability. Not hi tech tomfoolery.
