Happy Easter, whoever-reads-this! Growing up, we used to celebrate Easter every year with the traditional dinner. It was mostly I think for my Grandmother. Once she passed(1984), we kinda slacked off. My brother and I grab a Sunday breakfast or brunch a couple times a month but decided to forgo today because of the crowds.
A gig last night at All About Wine. Three horns, guitar and bass. Working without drums makes you listen a bit differently, maybe listening a bit harder. I tend to play less notes and well within my technique. It's all good.
Personally, I prefer smaller groups-duos, trios, maybe a quartet. You get to play a lot more, but then you have more responsibility.
My new gear(Gretsch guitar, Boss amp)sounded good last night. The guitar slips out of tune here and there, but that might just be old strings. Might have it looked at again..
The last couple days I've had trouble sleeping, which is why I haven't written in here. Thursday and Friday were actually okay, Saturday a bit of draggin' ass but still not too bad. Last night I tossed and turned again but got a couple more winks in this morning.
This too shall pass. Always does.
Thanks for reading, whoever-reads-this. Happy Easter!
