This is a new personal record for fret abuse. ....off to Gary Brawer Guitar Repair I go.
It was about 10 (maybe 15) years ago that the bass player here (Thomas Morgan) used to shyly ask me "Excuse me, can you show me how you voice a 13th chord?" He was amazing then at age 14.
We all said "Man, when you get your driver's license, your parents will never see you again."
...I hope he at least writes them once in awhile.
Keep those fingers warm...
Pictured below is the the scene for which I was selected to provided the sound track via my acoustic guitar. These two shared a very emotional wedding ceremony in beautiful Santa Rosa CA. They are very much looking forward to the life they will build together. It was very touching.
From there, I went to my next gig: this time with a jazz trio. Another couple had been married on the very same day---50 years prior. Their celebration was similarly touching but was a look back at the lives they had made together. They shared little pieces of wisdom like "When you're wrong, just admit it. When you're right--shut up about it."
I'm thankful to share experiences like these with people. It's another one of the great parts of being a musician.
...and that was my day at "the office."
