How to play “The Way I Tend To Be” by Frank Turner

This is one of my top five favorite songs of Frank’s.

On October 4, 2011, I went with some friends to see Frank Turner at The Loft in Dallas. We’d discovered Frank the year before, when he was one of the opening acts for Social Distortion, and he put on a great show. Then we dove into his music and fell in love with it.

So when Frank got his own headlining tour, we got tickets as soon as was possible.

Frank’s best-known song is “Photosynthesis” (iTunes link) and he closed the show with it. This is the edited cut, where I deleted about 5 minutes worth in the middle of the video, of introducing the band and ginning the crowd up.

Please forgive the frequent out-of-focusing; the dim and changing lighting, not to mention the band’s motion on stage, made it difficult for my little Canon point-and-shoot.
