RE: I have survived toughest year. Still in danger, but still alive.
Thanks mate. I am taking exactly the same set up as the other night. I was thinking of taking timbales but will wait and see how the drummer plays first. Apparently he is nowhere as good as me and he may not leave space and his time may not be good.

His wife is the vocalist. So what can one do?

In that case, good luck.

As it turned out he did not have much in the way of chops, but his time and groove was good! The band was also nice. As it turns out they loved me! To quote the bass player "I kept looking at you thinking, it takes years of experience to play with that much restraint."

The drummer said to me when the bass player told him who I was, "How was I did I do okay?" I said yeah man, easy to play with.

Slowly, ever so slowly, I am getting my life back!

The rehearsal was held at a members place and there was a noise complaint, so we only ran through the set once.

And the beauty of playing percussion as to playing kit, is this is all I had to take! Big Grin

RE: I have survived toughest year. Still in danger, but still alive.
That's fanfuckingtastic, Dale. " [...] it takes years of experience to play with that much restraint [...]" is high goddamned praise indeed -- us guitarists say "play for the song", or "let the song play you" -- and when someone else hears that in your playing, dynamite.

Speaking of hearing, is there any way you could put some audio up so's we can hear the doings? I'd love to hear what drives you.

Thanks mate. I think the bass player recorded something, but I am unsure. It was pretty quiet with the drummer just using brushes.

Something will eventually come up.

The drummer is in three bands, so I can cover on kit if he gets double booked. Or when I do have the set I can slip it to Taso and he can play drums. He's a great funk player. I took him through the David Garibaldi and Mike Clark books.
