I hadn’t solo’d on this tune up until this gig, so I was a bit unsure I guess but it’s in D major so what could go wrong!! Ha, besides everything. After listening to it I just here so many things in my head I could have done (more/better) but like most things at a gig “keep it simple”.
Thanks gents, the pentatonic studies lessons have helped getting the solo melodies in my head worked into the horn. Still have a long way to go!
This group is a blast to gig with but they only play a few times a year at special events, the other gig videos I’ve posted were with a blues band that has since imploded (kind of a thing with hobby bands) but just as well I’m really burnt out on playing standard 12 bar blues tunes at 80 bpm, I’d rather play rock and roll. I’m trying to find more gigs where we would only play 1 or 2 sets, none of them want to play the traditional 4 set gig which I understand, none of us are young any longer. I think if I could find at least a monthly event we’d practice more and sound tighter.
Yeah the suits are a must with these guys, I look like a giant purple circus tent… need to have the jacket taken in some (and drop about 40 pounds…)!!
