Sam's Saturday Sadhana
Another day in Paradise. In bed at 1:30, up at 9:30. Just a wee bit of tossin' and turnin', so at least approaching 8 hours of sleep. Feeling fine, and on that second cup o'Joe.
A gig last night at Robbie's. Some volume problems(getting it adjusted just right), and a few tempo disagreements between bass and drums, but you still get in and give it your all.
I liked three, maybe four, of the solos I played. And like another Robbie's gig from years back, didn't really have my chops until about the last 3 tunes of the evening. But, again, you give it your best effort. You just plant your feet and say, "fuck it". Here I'm is...
We had a sparse crowd, but still glad to see everyone who made it. One couple drove all the way from Bloomington to see us. Tickled as hell about that.
Nothing on tap for today except maybe an hour of Cardio. And some good guitar practice. Even though I get (some)things done, I don't consider myself a disciplined person by any means. Much of the time I need 5 days to get two productive ones..
Next gig is August 17th. Between then and now, much shedding and hopefully a bunch of new YouTube cuts for you. As ever, thanks for wading through all this muck. Happy Saturday to you. More later.
