And then I was asked to learn 13 songs. FAST.
Well, shit. Here goes, eh?
Happy to report I've been playing with Adios Amigo for the past month and am now almost fully up to speed on their entire current library of music. It has kept me from learning any outside music, but it's been spectacular. I'm super excited to play my very first show with them on August 30th at Rockit Room.
Things don't show any signs of slowing. We've got another show each month through November and I can hardly wait to get back to performing. So pleased about this new musical venture!
And playing and learning so much so quickly has already had some surprising results. Rahi, Chris, Evan and I, all previously of Red Weather, have been playing music with two talented guitar player/songwriters, Ethan and Kenny. On a tune Ethan wrote, I was playing fiddle when Rahi suggested I switch to keys. I turned around, sat at the piano, and without any help or even knowledge of what chords the guys were playing, I was able to just...play along. Just like that! It was so thrilling. Excited for more of these kinds of moments.
