I think we kinda got a "pass" on the quality of our music from our friends, 'cuz there weren't very many bands around...they had jus' been spinnin' 45rpm vinyl records at the dances up to that point, so they were real tolerant of us and were just happy to have a live band. But yeah, it was fun. I was the chairman of the social committee on our senior high student council, so I started bookin' lotsa bands into our auditorium programs and dances. I found out real quick that people would pay a little more to hear good entertainment. Any place we walked into that had a piano became an instant jam..I'd pull out a harp and my buddy'd sit down on the keys and we'd schlock our way around until a crowd gathered. We'd take over the practice halls at college too, and jams would happen. My buddy'd take his 6-string acoustic everywhere with him and if we weren't throwin' a frisbee or a football, we were jammin' harp and guitar. When we got into college we'd talk the night janitor at the school into lettin' us into the auditorium and we'd sit down on the big Steinway grand and let the music echo all over the hall. We jus' played all the time. Pretty soon we got another guitar player and started playin' any kinda blues we could figure out and started writin' tunes for our instrumentation...harp,guitar and keys...no bass or drums. You jus' gotta keep your eyes open for people who'll play and hope to get lucky. Even to this day, I find that if I wanna play more, I gotta network a little and insert myself into situations, or jus' take advantage of invites that I get, rather than be too lazy to show up. I've been real fortunate though, 'cuz I hooked up with a whole buncha guys I used to play with 25-30 years ago who still live in the same town, and we jam every week...been doin' it for about 15 years.
Very cool, Well I'vbe talked to a friend of mine "my nephews Grandpa, and he wants to jam with me and his son by marriage, So I'm going to be set up this summer since his son by merage is a drummer you all are going to see vast improvements this summer I guarantee you that

Jeff, I've been trying to get hooked up with someone who wants to play but every time I'm running into people who are quiet a bit younger then I am and who are into bob Dylan or bob Marley. That's not for me I'm trying to find people who wants to play classic rock, southern rock, blues, and so on. You get the point.

By the way I betcha you had an awesome time playing didn't you Jeff when you were in school?

Btw, I missed it if you've posted before, what kind of SG are you playing? I have the 61 RI and it's the best guitar I've ever played by a long shot.

Maybe you're getting more relaxed in your entire life Derek, and it's bleeding over into your music. That's my guess anyway. I've got a good friend whom I've played music with- off 'n' on - for about 30 years. His theory with art of any kind is to think like a catfish and lay on the bottom of the river and let the river come to you. It's a generality, but it works to a great extent. Your heart wants you to be a decent musician, so explore your instrument and the music and have fun doin' it. As with anything that you really enjoy, time will fly by and you won't even notice the improvements you make in your music...they will mostly be gradual improvements, with an occasional "eureka" moment when you figure out how to do something you've been struggling with. And, like you say, after a coupla years, with luck and some talent, you'll be able to say you've come a long way. It never ends.
That's a great point Jeff, but I think from the last video post I've came a long way's and I will keep on rockin,

Now is it rockin or Rocking?

LOL anyways thank you bro.
