    Got chance to play a gig in far NW NV last week. First time playing in front of an audience in nearly 40 years. Stepped in and got to go back to my roots by playing bass. We all knew the set list. Everyone else tapped for the gig (of friends) were in working bands so I knew I'd be outclassed from the beginning. Only the keyboard and drummer had played together before that night. In the end I held up my end and had a blast. Everyone enjoyed it enough that this first-effort is being talked about as being a regular part of the event going forward.

    The night's topper was that when everyone else left for the night, the band hung back for about an hour or more and jammed with some different improvs. The woman that closed up (and ran us out) caught me as I was loading my amp and said that next year we needed to start sooner and jam more (instead of as many canned songs).

    Made my year. Played the Fender Jazz Bass (Mexico) and the Orange Crush 50 bass amp.

    The lead player had a Telecaster and DSL20 that he got great tone from and was well-able to stand out in the mix.

    Ok , it must be the whole combination but works well and punch was what was the DSL lacked in my opinion.

    I think maybe some spoken word stuff might be cool over that. In my head, I kept hearing, like, someone reading Jack Kerouac or something. Or maybe weaving some tale with some degree of random poeticism...it's cool

    Think I've smoked enough? Maybe I should try some more and listen again lol

    I think it was cool and laid back, the planet caravan was a great description of it, but a bit more bluesy.
    Cool work Ibmorjamn!!
    Cheers Mitch

    Yeah , I kind of agree but it needs percussion just not a regular drum imo.

    Maximine from the MF did a backing track a few years back and I provided him a lead to mix over top of it. Short clip and hope you like it.

    I seriously appreciate the compliments.

    People ask why I do originals instead of covers.
    Many years ago, playing covers...we started slipping in a couple originals.
    Never announced them.
    Just played them between cover songs.

    One particular show...some random guy comes and says: "Dude that one song was badass...it was really awesome. I can't think of the name but I think it was a (some band) song...It was right after "AmI Evil"

    From that moment, I told the band, I am not learning any more covers. We write or I'm on my own.
    It meant more to me that one person (actually it was more than 1) liked what I wrote than everyone else there telling me how much I could sound like James Hetfield.r...

    Again, Thank you.
    I'll post them as they get closer to finalization.
