Thread Name: Why the cigarette in the guitar?
Subject: RE: Why the cigarette in the guitar?
Back in the sixties when I was at Aberystwyth university, we used to have a good session in the Angel on a saturday night. There'd be half a dozen guys playing instruments and everybody had an impaled fag (cigarette, that is!) hanging on a string end and waving about to the rhythm of San Francisco Bay Blues or Nobody Knows You When You're Down and Out. Its a miracle the place didn't get burned down.

Cheers
