Rock and Roll

Well I felt so bad about my fiasco on Friday that I forced myself to get something done in the Rock Shed.

This track, if you can get it, is my version of something we used to do in a band I was in - we played it at the start of gigs to get our fingers going and make sure the sound was OK.

It is very rough at the edges, I had to settle for the first "not too horrible" takes, but I think it gives an idea of what I sound like. Bass, lead and rhythm guitars are all me, drums were done by the PC.

PS Just had a call saying that the new pickups for my V-Bass have finally arrived! Yay! I can finally rebuild it and make it even more awesome that it was before! Stay tuned for photos...

But I still want to see a video of you playing :) sorry :)

Ali - You checked my blog at 3am? Are you nuts? OK, I think we already know the answer to that one...

Glad you liked it - video will follow soon, I expect.

Fantastic!!! I love it - I like to play my music loud and I was able to do that here at work in my area (not the newsroom) because everyone has gone home - that was really great!
