1 Pt 9 months ago First off I should mention that I am an old guy (but I don't look or think like an old guy) I'm in my 70's. I quit playing in bands about a year ago. Not because of age but because I'm tired of playing in country and old blues bands. So now I frequent open mic nights in a local bar. There have been some good jams there but tonight was by far the best (band) I have ever played with. When everyone showed up there were two guitars, bass, drums, singers and three horn players. I expected Herb Alpert and other songs along that line but most was like Chicago 25 or 6 2 4 And a lot of newer songs (not heavy metal or hiphop but hard rocking songs) A lot of what we played I didn't know but I picked up on them after a few masures. I brought my Gretsch 5120 But I would have been better off with a solid body. It was the most rocking night I ever had. Just fantastic. When you think you played it all,,,,think again. Go to the local open mics. Some may be bad but when you hit a good one you willl be hooked, no matter how old you are.
