I bought my first 2 guitars when I was still asceered of cannabis.

I had the fever to learn, though I started off on an Aria 12 string (strung with 6) I bought for $50CAD from my brother. He expected me to give up and give him the guitar back. Pissed him off that I could outplay him within 4 years. :hihi: Really. I don't think he ever forgave me. :lol:

Not the 10% I was thinking of.

I had a can of this once. Only once.

I think this is 10.5% or something like that.

I recall the start of a coach journey from Portsmouth to Oxford with 4 cans of this.

Not so clear about the end of that journey...nor the middle really...

I've been a beginner for 30 years now.
And imagine how many of us have been at it even longer. :hihi:

But more than a few will still express regret at not sticking with it like some of us eternal amateurs. :wheee:

I can't go on, I must go on... :ud:

I could be wrong then, but I really seem to recall that it was the only beer you could get in cans that had an alcohol content in double figures back then. Talking about 1985 I think.

...or maybe that stuff just rotted my brain cells...quite likely... :hihi:

Back then it was much higher I think. I had an uncle who drank it but he was a man of steel :)
