Jam – 2010-03-10 – Carroll’s

Middle of the week jam meant for a relatively short run to the finish for the Friday finish line, at least from my perspective.  Being such a Friday as I try to recap the jam is tougher than one would think.  Fortunately I just received the notice from Rich that the MP3s are done so I can post them and use them as a crutch to job my memory.  First of all, we had lots of guests, ironically Scott Bayer not being one of them, but we had Stu, Michael and the rest of the entourage.  It’s always encouraging to see them all especially when they get spinning with the music at a dizzying pace.  I heard a few hoots, an occasional howl, lots of talking and even some singing along with the music.  All of it good.

From my guitar perspective I had a little trouble getting off the blocks.  The Twin I had came with the Fender speakers and it was weak and impotent.  I couldn’t get it moving with it.  I probably tried another one by the third song and that problem was solved.  I was fighting my pick early in the night as it’s point was worn and I was missing strings.  I had some moments where I felt better than other this night.  Once people started showing up I think I played with a bit more urgency and got a little more comfortable with my sound, so I don’t want to hem and haw about my inabilities too much, but come on Larry, I can be clutcher than I am.  I played with some 80s Garband at home earlier in the week so I had practice with the Let It Rock and the Melody, but I blew most of what I practiced in the Let It Rock.

    Even if you only had 5 minutes left to live, you would want to hear the Monster Jam at the end of Rhapsody In Red. The song itself was pretty good too, but if you must cut to the chase you can start at 5:18. Hold on tight!!

    I agree. Also the jam on Comes Together is really coming together too. Listen starting at 4:45. It has turned into a real Dead jam. By adjusting the key half a step we could segue into (or out of) Feel Like a Stranger.
