With the last regular episode of Lockdown Lead Guitar being uploaded to YouTube a couple of weeks ago I’ve been focusing on other things – live music seems to be making a slow comeback, but still under certain restrictions, but rehearsals have been ongoing.

Ground Control to Major Tom? nah, not quite.

As well as trying (and sometimes succeeding) to remember songs that I’ve not played for a while, I’ve also set up an Instagram account for Off Your Rocker – the first post showing Ally and David looking like hostages in a ransom demand. The next task on the agenda is to make sure my equipment is gig ready; the main pedalboard for Independence and OYR was rebuilt yesterday – a little tidying up of the cabling is still required – the next step will be the rack based system for Madison as it’s been dismantled and elements of it used in the studio since lockdown began last year.
