A thing I have always appreciated is how when we get together everybody seems to get a sense of the collective mood and we jam accordingly. Some nights we focus on trying to get a tricky cover to sound right. Some nights we compose an original song. Some nights we jam freeform and maybe stumble on something we love. Some nights we randomly pick songs we know and try a few we don’t know. Some nights we only play a few songs and tell stories and laugh. Now that I think of it, we laugh no matter what.
There have been many times over the past five years playing with these cool gifted friends where I’ve thought something like, “wow, how do people that don’t get to play in fun bands manage to survive?” I guess I will find out. Or, find a fun band. Preferably with these guys in it.
