It's Music Again

Band practice tonight went swimmingly. When we practiced on Saturday, one of the singers (who also plays guitar) was still sick. That means that I had to try to carry the whole guitar load on songs I don't really know. But he was back tonight. So I was able to concentrate on filling in holes.

Someone once told me that I would be bored by the music this band plays. Well, the challenge is for me to learn so many intricate harmonies, rhythms, and chord progressions at once. Since we use librettos with tablatures instead of actual music, you have to already know the song to learn it.

Also, we have a tendancy to play the songs once. Tonight we actually worked on parts, instead of racing through the list. It was very satisfying.

I think you're doing a great job, and the guitar parts really make a lot of difference. And it's nice to have someone to roll my eyes at when the tedious parts of the rehearsal are going on (lectures from the 12-string guy mainly)
