So the Blue Bear director sent me a message Sunday night asking if I'd like to join a workshop at a steep discount. It's good to be a bass player. Although I'm still living mostly off of savings, I said yes, since I'd have the chance to play with my teacher Steve again.1 note - Make notes
So tonight was the first rehearsal of my ninth Blue Bear workshop. (Not counting various vocal and other recitals since I started taking classes there in 2004.) Besides me and Steve, we have a guitarist, guitar/keyboard player, drummer, and two singers - all guys. Which I prefer, actually. About time we have some more male singers!
A dozen or so songs were suggested, many of which I recognized and most of which I liked. We started with Dylan's "Like a Rolling Stone", for which Steve wrote out a quick chart; I got the hang of it pretty easily. I have a good feeling about this group!
Our show will probably be on Monday, September 21 at Café du Nord. More details closer to the date.
