I had another fairly productive jam with Nick and Roger last night, despite being pretty shattered. I’ve now learnt Cutaway, so I can now play a whole set! Starting to get familiar with the songs too which will mean that hopefully I can stop worrying about which bit goes where and concentrate on playing something musically interesting! We spent quite a while working on Quiet Life In The City (one of Nick’s songs) too. It’s a nice easy 12 bar, but I find that generally means it requires a lot of work to make it sound good. Blues, easy to learn, hard to master.
Below is our current “tour schedule.” Although playing around Edinburgh (and mainly in the Forest Cafe at that!) with the odd gig in Newcastle isn’t really a tour. But anyway, currently on the cards we have (should hopefully returning the the Bongo Club and playing at Henry’s at some point too!):
