Jam – 2011-11-16 – Carroll’s

I am trying iPhone – Siri dictation once again for this week’s posting. Let’s see how it goes and see how Siri and I are working together once again this week.

I just look back on the first paragraph and it looked pretty darn good. And on with the posting. We were fortunate enough to be back in town rolls this week with the entire band in tow. Right from the get-go we had some issues with the PA system. The speaker to my right was barely audible and it made a ghostly sound with respect to trying to pick up both riches keyboard as well as the vocals.

after three or four songs we finally call Alan the tech in to rectify the situation. In the end he gave us a feed from the monitor that was next to Scott’s drum kit. This works really well in the sand was good for the rest of the night.

sadly, I was struggling all evening coordinating my right hand and its ability to hit the strings. I had an atrocious night from that perspective of in accurate picking while playing my guitar. Totally I felt pretty good it was just my right hand was just missing all the strings I think I was even thinking well and clearly for most of the night but I knew from the beginning it was going to be a difficult evening. I kept sliding away though trying not to give into the inevitable shadiness of my plane and I got it going through the night it wasn’t terrible but it was just one of those nights that you knew it wasn’t going to be one of those nights even though it was one of those nights.

I got to say we will look for check for much of the second half of the jam. We only made it to 1155 and even that wasn’t easy. As far as guests go we only had the one and only very annoying Scott bear. I was trying my best to get him to stop playing the bongos during the midnight Moonlight. I was having enough trouble just trying to get a tempo going myself and to hear him in the back my head while I was trying get the song started was just more than I could bear, pardon the pun.

Well that’s about it we have one more jam before Thanksgiving which should happen on Monday night so let’s hope it goes better. In the meantime, if you dare listen to kthe MP3 below:

    Whatever the Gind thought he was doing with his right hand hitting the strings the second half of the lead in Black Peter was his redemption. Nice goin’.
