We are at the IMAC in Huntington on Long Island. We just finished a great first set… in fact the drummers are still on stage, doing their fantastic duet.
Mo, the monitor engineer looks at Ron and Robby playing, turns to me and says: they never seize to amaze me.
Now Ron comes off stage and declares: this band is happening!
I am having a great time tonight and feel full of ideas. It’s the little things that make such a difference, like having the perfect right hand nail length. It varies from day to day, and is complicated by the temperature and humidity changes from venue to venue and city to city. When the temperature drops, the flesh of the finger shrinks, and the nail is too long. When the temperature goes up, the flesh gets larger and the nail is too short. Of course one learns to adjust to that, but sometimes it is just perfect… and the guitar seems to play itself… Off to start the second set now… Robby starts the new intro to the intro to the intro of Snakecharmer with a beautiful Kora riff…gotta go!
