...and, though I say so myself, it sounded really good. Just a rehearsal with a four piece blues / Americana / country band. I must say I surprised myself. The thing is, I know I haven't got any better - in fact, quite the opposite: my electric chops have been neglected - so I'm guessing that what's going on here is the opposite of familiarity breeding contempt. I still only know three phrases but I assume that because I haven't played them for so long they suddenly sounded fresh. We're gigging this afternoon / evening so it'll be interesting to see whether, now that my electric playing is again familiar, I once more think I suck. I'll let you know.
