Really nice guitar playing, good vocal. I like the groove in the songs and you got to be good musicians if thats the third rehearsal (sry for spelling that wrong :wink: ) Although I think your missing a second solist like a harp player, pianist or summit.

Are you the guitar player?

:oops: compliments... not used to that... thx guys 8)

Badboy, there's actually two guitar players, Fred and me, but we kept the "each guitar player a solo in every song" syndrome out of the recording (most of the time)
I have been 'voted' singer for the band as there was no real singer who wanted to be backed by such a bunch of old & uglies ;)
same for keyboard or harp... since I couldn't find a rhythm section, I didn't look for keys or harp, now we're going to get the band up and going, it'll be easier to find someone if we can offer them "plug and play" and a couple of gigs

"an easy usually bounding gait capable of being sustained for a long time"

that's the definition from the dictionary. I meant it as a nice bouncy feeling that is steady, even, and feels like it wants to speed up, but doesn't. That is just what I hear, and it is a very appealing groove to me in the blues, and I find in hard to accomplish.

In short, good kickin' groove and keep up the bluesin'! 8)

thanks for the compliments! It's good to hear I'm on the right track 8)

I have to send this to the other guys - especially the rhythm section! (responsible for keeping me from speeding up :lol: )
