At the bar gig someone shot some low budget phone video (NO, TED...WE WILL NOT BE USING THESE FOR PROMO PURPOSES!)
they're all little 30-40 second snippets, and oddly enough they're all original tunes. I wish they'd shot the whole song on these cos I'd love to see the whole performance.
Mr. Peirce...you might be happy to know that Sarah is on violin on three of these!
Planet Jazz has been playing this first one, "Roger The Mouse" for a while now. Thinking about it, damn... this tune is actually about 40 yrs old!
I'm used to playing this tune on nicely set up elec gtrs, relaxing at a nicely set table of drums and bass! This is really challenging for me, playing this stuff on acoustic (albeit that very NICE Guild 130R of Sarah's), with just light accompaniment from violin. Of course, it's tons of fun, and very good for my little brain to have to make this kind of stuff work in the moment. for better or worse....that's how i play. I'm not a "hey, i'll just work a solo out and play THAT everytime" kinda guy. This is the first time we played it out....
