Band update

Look at this, two music category posts in two days. Who'da thunk it? (I thunk it.)

I didn't write this last night because I was just too damned tired. Yesterday afternoon the bass player and I trucked our gear (literally) to the practice spot. Fortunately for us our practice area is in a building that the vox guy runs a business out of. And he's got the whole building. This means no rent (YES!!) and we can make all the noise we want.

We arrived around 3:30pm. We set up our stuff. Shortly thereafter the second guitar player showed up then the vox guy arrived. Then we all started playing. We basically played almost non-stop until 10pm (for real). We also finished up the first rough version of a song. Neat-o.

Even with no drummer present (because we're still looking for one,) the vibe I got was pretty good. All of us are on the same page, there is no drama involved and no stress either. My largest fear was my "compatibility" with the music that was being played - but in reality I fit right in with it. Nice surprise there. (grin)

If things turn out okay we might start playing out in a few months. Maybe around March or April. And who knows, we might do well out there. I think we will. The biggest reason bands don't "make it" and break up is mostly because of unnecessary drama. Attitudes clash and whatnot. However (as I said a second ago,) all of us agree on the standard rule: No drama. Very good rule to live by.

It's all good. I'm in a great mood. (grin)
