  • All too true. 
    I threw me guitar out. Why bother? Why bother? Use it as a coffee table. Because I can't play it like that.

  • First practice back. Everyone showed up (that took 9 weeks the first time). And oddly we didn't sound like a train wreck on three new songs -- albeit fairly easy ones.

    The other guitarist who drove me mad last time is mostly gonna be on bass this time, which will be a big improvement from my perspective, as he won't be clashing with me as much.

    Nice! The incredibly part-time cover band I'm part of recently played a St. Patty's gig, and we were surprisingly tighter than we had been the last time we played (Sept). Not sure how that works, but I'm all for unearned gains.

    That works like muscle's memory (in fact, muscle memory is involved).

    Except it's all new songs, so that wasn't it.

    maybe they smell potential, for a change.  i smelled money when you described it to us.

    Oh, so I supose it's the result of the last concert; you'd said you'd played all fine. That could encourage people.
  • So far, we've mostly been choosing really simple songs. So the degree of difficulty is lower.

    YAY it's over!  What a shit show. The gig turned out OK, but toward the end -- particularly after Amy had her surgery, I was just mailing it in. It served it's purpose. And now I'm done with it. 

    Gig pics to follow. Maybe some video if it doesn't suck too bad.

    anything new on the horizon?

    Maybe some session work, which would frankly be more gratifying.
