Fretkiller: The anonymous guitarist. For some reason this YouTube/ internet phenomenon was 'unplugged' from YouTube.  Luckily someone had copied all his videos and has re-posted them on YouTube. I love his guitar and his voice, and so here, just because I can, is one of his clips. Up a Lazy River is a special favourite of mine because I've lived beside a river for 35 out of my fifty-mumble years, and rivers feel like home to me.


  1. Ahhh I liked that! I love rivers too but have never lived beside one - in fact I've often thought that the River Aire would have had to flood the whole of Leeds before it lapped at our door. We're quite high up on a hill!

  2. Just because you can is a pretty good reason in my book.
