This girl in my ward, Aubrey, was having some people over to her house to jam, and she heard that I play harmonica, so she invited me too. So, Chad Phillips, Matt Evans, Amy Todd, Brittney, and I went to her house the other night. When we got there, in her living room, they had a full drum set, some guitars and a bass, amps, mics, and a piano, all ready to go. Sweet. She talked her dad into playing drums for us (which wasn't very hard), and he was awsome. Chad and Matt got on the guitars, and I sat down with my Harmonica and a mic. The girls sang and danced around. A splendid time was had by all. We started out with Wild Thing, which isn't too tough. Aubrey's uncle Rusty, showed up shortly after we started and picked up a guitar too. Matt evans tried the bass, and really liked it, so he was figuring out how to play that the rest of the night, and had a good time. We did Spoonfull, Crossroads, Wooly Bully, Fight for your Right, Blackbird, and just some blues jammin'. It felt so great to actually contribute to musical creation. They kept trying to play Satisfaction, but it wasn't working out. So then we remembered that there's a ward talent show at the end of the month, so we decided to put together a song for that. Matt, Chad and I are gonna play a song by Alice in Chains, that has a lot of harmonica in it, so that should be cool. I just gotta learn my part, because I didn't know the song before. Good times. We'll see how it goes.
