Fladderak Instrumental - Early Years Recording

One of the first ever proper recordings done in some living room somewhere. I was part of an acoustic duo at this time and can remember there was a percussion player for this recording also present. If I am correct remembering I played the lead guitar and bass with my feet at the same time. Melody of the tune was probably result of just jamming along.

FLADDERAK is a traditional Dutch drink that is mainly drunk in the province of Groningen. It is a mix of gin, sugar, lemon and cinnamon.

The drink has a sweet and spicy taste and is usually served as an aperitif or digestif. Fladderak is often homemade and is a popular drink during festive occasions such as weddings and birthdays.

Although it is still popular in Groningen, Fladderak is becoming less and less known in other parts of the Netherlands.
