what did I just do?
I agreed to play at an Open Mic night tomorrow evening in a local bar. The musicians get to do three songs each at the Open Mic. I'm going to do three songs by myself at around 10:00, then jam with everyone else until closing time. Willy made the offer and I accepted.
I haven't played in public for years now. I've been playing a lot lately, but I'm not sure how well I will do on a stage again. My personal opinion? I'LL BLOW THEIR FUCKING DOORS OFF!!!
There goes that mile-wide ego again. Hell, I wouldn't get up there if I didn't believe that I could do it.
Good gawd! Blogs, books, career change, puppies, and now Musical performances! Your ceaseless quest for adoration is a thing to marvel. Go for all of it, man.
Vicarious living sucks, but you make it much less sucky. Thanks.
Go acoustic, A-Man !! Let them hear who you really are.
So, what are you going to play?
"Louisana," "Kathy's Song" and "Angel From Montgomery." It's a good mix of strumming, picking and banging a guitar.
Yeah... I'm going to blow their fucking doors off.
And, here I am...stuck here. I'll miss your version of "Louisiana"...you know how I love that song.
Study without thinking, and you are blind; think without studying, and you are in danger.
If I could get my membership fee back, I'd resign from the human race.
