    This weekend i was on my motorbike and managed to crash in a country lane and i've broken the scaphoid bone in my hand and it's in a cast (see pic), this of course means i can't play... at least not in the normal way.
    Feeling very bored (and slightly sorry for myself) i started to dig through all the junk and spares for my kit and with a little inspiration from Def Leppard and ingunuity I have come up with a means to play High hat with my left foot!

    A new version of the low-sock cymbal from years past. That's a pretty cool retrofit. Now you have to do one for the ride :D
