Was just looking over my November schedule. Two retirement home gigs, two Moonlighter's band gigs and two Timeless Melodies gigs. Wow...I'm all over the board. I've always been a firm believer in the "the more you can do, the more you work". Its been a blessing and a curse. Playing multiple instruments is a great thing, as long as you play them well. Lately I've been practicing a lot of Ukulele and upright bass - they need the most attention. Uke is easy and its more fun than anything, upright bass is a seriously challenging instrument, and it will always be a work in progress. Sure some guys fake it pretty good, but real upright players are serious dudes! Right now I'm still in the fake it mode. its fun, but it makes my fingers sore - need to build up the callouses. I worked up a pretty good blister over this past weekend. But that's a good thing.
