Fairytale In New York - The Pogues.

Played here on my Korg PA4.

Sorry about the crumby lights, we haven’t got our Christmas decorations box from the loft yet!

Keep the music playing!

Hi there I have played from the age of 13 and all my music is played in a sort of dance tempo style. Have worked in nearly all the North East clubs over the years. That gave me a good grounding. Cheers.

Hi Peter A favourite of mine a totally different Christmas song. Everyone in the North East Thought one of the lyrics said A Cafe Down Whitley Bay. Enjoyed your interpretation and use of sounds. Didn’t like the lights gave me a headache. John

Hi Peter,

I must confess that I am not one of those 45 million people who have watched the original video by the Pogues. This is the first time I have heard it. Very well played by you though, despite the lights. I see your tablet over your Korg has those ultra thin modern screens that enable you to physically turn the ultra thin pages over as you are playing. I'm sure you could organise it so that the pages turn over electronically with a nod of the head.

Thanks Hugh.

No, that isn’t a Tablet, it’s the keyboards LCD showing the instruments, style, settings etc.
I’m using a book on this one for the music.
