We Jammin'

Cover your ears and run, I've picked up my guitar again. I've even managed to swindle a couple of friends of mine to let me jam with them. That's Rico and Badette of Agos fame, and they rock! We've been practicing to play next week at "Bagyo Aid". It's a benefit concert so no free tickets, eh? Lot's of other bands and performers, unplugged. Anyways, I haven't been this jazzed about playing somewhere in a looong time. With all the biking I've been doing, it's been a while since I even touched my guitar. The fingers and ears were definitely rusty and it will take me a while to get my chops back (not that I ever had them in the first place). But no worries, the practicing is paying off, Rico and Badette have lots (and lots) of patience, and I'm slowly getting there, I think.

Very cool, Joe! I saw The Speaks open for the Alarm last year in DC. As I remember, they were pretty entertaining. Good luck on your gig!

great for you to get back with the guitar

another thing.....
have you used your rollers much this winter?

I think I have been able to get out enough outside that I did not feel the need for inside
no long rides
I seldom take long rides
only in the winter I have an excuse
