We're playing a whole lot more 70's soul/funk/groove stuff, and a whole lot less rock'n'roll, which I think is a good thing in the long run. Of course we're still doing some r'n'r, but I think the grooves we pulled out of the hat tonight blows anything we've done in the past simply out of the water. I mean, Stevie Wonders' "Superstition" sounded simply magical the way we've worked it.
So yeah... I've happily switched from bass to rhythm guitar and keyboards (I'll be able to 'float' around a lot more between instruments) - and I can leave the singing upto those guys, thank gawd for that! Just means now I have to practise-up my piano/keyboards for a bit for a change! heh heh. So yeah... I can concentrate a bit more on physical band presentation and lighting and all that stuff too as well now.
It's not just got to do with my lame attitude and feelingtotally down last week... it's just the refreshing change we really needed. Even when we started playing tonight, just the three of us before Andew arrived, it just sounded and felt a zillion percent better.
Mind you... even tho I wore proper shoes with good supports for my aching left foot tonight, it's still aching like dog's ball$... sheesh.
Peas be with ewe
