Jam – 2011-02-01 – Carroll’s

Deadstein was back together on this Wednesday night for a full and ordinary night of Deadstein.  While ordinary for Deadstein, the normality of it all gave resulted in a really nice jam, as it should.  Kevin got his dream bass rig, with a dedicated amp for the sub with a simple high pass filter switch on it.  The remaining highs were sent to the Roland and it was low and powerful.  Thank G-d for that new tech we have in the room, he’s looking after us!

There was a giant ice storm in the country and our area the day before so it was questionable whether the jam would take place or pushed to Thursday.  The storm was a serious morning event, but by the afternoon, the sun came out it warmed up and Deadstein was on.  The roads were not a problem and didn’t freeze up on the way home either.

The night’s music can be described as a Grateful Dead sandwich on very thin Beatles toast, with a whole lot of cheese.  It was fun to be playing Jerry again after last weeks jam with Jason when I played Bob.  I’ve been practicing a lot at home recently being stuck at home with all the snow, but I hadn’t done anything between last week and this week.  It didn’t seem to matter as I felt pretty fresh and relatively competent.  The Taxman –> Aiko transition could have been good if I communicated it to anyone.  In the Minglewood I ad-libbed a little about the Egyptian revolution which was in full force during the times of our jam.  We lost a lot of energy by the time the midnight hour rolled around but there was plenty of good stuff in between.  And that’s what she said.

    A fun night. The MP3s sound good. Consistently tight playing and with some tasty leads and jams. Kudos to Rich and Larry for your leads on Peggy-O!
