So long story short, the band I was playing in last year broke up and between taking a hiatus, having problems finding guys to fill a line up, getting busy with work (and family, and you name it) I haven't played in public since last June.
So an old friend of mine invited me to play with his band this weekend at a big motorcycle rally the next town over. It's just playing classic rock covers in a tiny bar but I'm still pretty excited.
My hands are not cooperating too much though. During the break all my callouses reverted back to soft, weak shit flesh. I've been trying to get back in shape the last few weeks but I haven't had much time. This week though, I've been putting in a couple hours a night just playing (and dialing in Marshall tones on my Axe Fx II).
Friday night's show is four hours. I think I'm gonna be sore Saturday morning.
That's what beer is for!
