If I had even a little talent in music, I’d busk on the streets of Europe five days a week for the rest of my life. I don’t though.
I came across this man at Dam Square, the Royal Palace under renovation fills the background. He tapped the fingers of his right hand hard on the strings of his rickety old instrument that looked to be in tatters and about to come apart. I remember him doing an Elvis Presley song and another one titled, ‘A Whiter Shade of Pale’ in his own original style.
And everytime someone spared some change, he’d go “Thank You Ma’am” / “Thank You Sir” in the middle of the song. It’d blend nicely though.
What a character!
