A MAN who is competent on the guitar thinks he is unbelievable, it has emerged.
Tom Booker, who plays in local covers band The Railroad Gang, is at a level where he can reproduce other people’s songs in a competent but uninspired way.
Booker said: “I’d describe my style of guitar playing as ‘the bollocks’. Beautiful music just flows out of me.
“Any instrument that I ever picked up I could play within two hours, including the one that looks like a massive violin.”
Booker’s highly localised worldview, based on playing only at local pubs to a small audience of family members and easily pleased drunks, is believed to contribute to his high self-esteem.
Booker added: “I’d probably be amazing at writing books and painting pictures too, if I ever fancied a go at that.
“At our last gig we sold four CDs which is a new record. We’ve only got about eight boxes of them left.”
