There’s not much more I love than getting together with extremely talented people on a weekday evening to play some tunes. And covering a Coldplay song at that. I got together a few weeks back with Debi Baxter and Josh Bandy (Little Climbers) to cover Coldplay’s latest single Fun.

Speaking of new Coldplay, I guess I’ll take this opportunity to admit that the new Coldplay is frickin’ fantastic. It took weeks to grow on me, but I’m glad I toughed it out. Have you had any issues getting into this album? If you have, just trust me – tough it out. Give it 3 thorough listens and you’ll fall in love just like I did. I’m really excited for where this band is headed. Most of you probably know what a huge impact Jonny Buckland was on my guitar playing.

I also have to admit I love dog-sitting and Joaquin – the French Bulldog with a cleft lip – was no exception. He had to get in on the action.

For more information on Josh and my (is that the proper grammatical structure?), check out Little Climbers on Facebook. We try to play out about once a month – be it just me and him or full band.

Also, if you’re into cover videos, videos of what’s going on with new music by Little Climbers, or just need another YouTube channel to subscribe to, check out Little Climbers on YouTube.
