I've seen skilled box players crying into their beer when they hear the last time though... :-(

I've certainly cried into my beer over Tony's arrangement, both from joy and my own inadequacy.

But I say it shouldn't stop us playing a great tune!

Agreed 100%. And I've found recently that when playing it for Smiffs as a duet with Ollie, between the two of us we sound almost like Tony ;-)
