So last night I got together with Trinity River Bluegrass. (That's the band I'm in...you didn't know we were so official as to have a name, did you?) Anyway, we practiced through our songs like normal. We were all tired and ready to be done. At the end, Raymond started playing a nice chord progression, and Dave chimed in with his guitar picking (which is really good!). I know enough to follow along, so that's what I did. Then, Raymond started singing the words of our last song. I'm better at singing than playing, so I got to add my own part. Pretty soon, we'd rearranged a song! We really liked it, but realized we'd never remember it for next week's practice. So, I pulled out the trusty MacBook Pro, opened up Garage Band, and we recorded our first song! If you're hearing music from my blog right now, that's the song we recorded. If you don't hear anything, check the music player in the sidebar.
Raymond is singing lead, I'm doing backup, we're all on guitar, and Dave is doing the melody on the guitar. The original song is You're Running Wild, sung by Rhonda Vincent.
Of course, it gets rough at times, because we'd only played through it once or twice, but I'm pretty proud of it. We were all giddy last night! Our first recording! Hooray!
Hippotherapy for James - Contrary to popular belief, "hippotherapy" is therapy using horses, not hippos. James LOVES horses, so I was excited to start hippotherapy at Hope Landing ...
