I couldn't agree more, Al. It was the openness and inclusiveness of the club's i first attended that encouraged me. They had a good mix of styles, they were non-judgmental of my dithery efforts, and they made anyone and everyone feel welcome to 'have a go'.

And I read all my lyrics from a loose leaf binder for many years, until I suddenly realised I was actually not reading most of the time - I just had it in front of me as a 'comfort-blanket'. So I started singing and playing (mostly) without it - still have my iPad as a prop when I do a new song the first couple of times, and I feel no shame.
