ONE OF MY guitar students turned me on to Phillip Phillips and his song "Gone Gone Gone." It's rhythmic and not easy to pull off. I practiced it a few times and played it last night during our Pepper Spray performance at One Restaurant.
I have a long way to go. But that's okay.
It's good to try something different. We played three or four songs last night we've never attempted as a band, if you can call Pepper Spray a band. It's more like a bunch of guys who like to play and make noise. Works for me.
I encourage my students to go beyond what they think they can do. Maybe they will fall flat, and maybe it will be a semi train wreck, like my attempt at Phillip Phillips.
You can't grow unless you go.
And we have more fun than should be allowed last night, thanks again to the great One staff and my fellow Pepper Sprayers, Justin Sievert, Adam Yates, Tim Smith and Adam Duesterhaus.
Let's do it again!
