On another note, I suddenly had to go to Canberra late yesterday. While I was there I remembered that Franklyn B. Paverty, Canberra's longest running bushband, was playing for an open air dance so I went by to watch them as I'd never seen them play even though I know a few of the members. The bass player was calling and having trouble doing both - one of them saw me there and came over and asked me to sit in, so I ended up playing for 2 hours (good thing they had chord charts).
Was great to play with such good musos! Must have done ok as afterwards they asked me for a contact for the future if they need a bassist to sub.
Here's them : http://paverty.com.au
