It finally happened !

At practice with the old man(beginners)blues band I'm in, we've been trying to work on extending the length of songs. This is to save the singer's voice over the the course of the usual 5 set, 3 hour show.

It's a 3 guitar line up,rhythm,slide and lead.
The lead and slide players have started to get the idea of taking it in turns of soloing each time through the 12 bars of a tune, and sometimes even swapping 4 bars, when they are reminded about it.

We have been working up an instrumental 12 bar song,with each guitar taking a turn to solo each time through.

Well today, after about the 6 or 7th time through, they all turned to me,the bass player, and gave me 12 bars to solo over !

Miracles do happen !

:)

I’ve really never done any solos, and after spending a week with Victor and his crew last summer I may never even try “o)

It is cool, maybe with some more time working with the modes I may gain some confidence. I was such a Feral bassist before I spent that week at Wootenwoods.
