Nothing more than you'd expect Mary. I'm sure they pushed straight past that. They are used to playing together.
I'm just so pleased for you Mary. That first practice is a monumental step. Funny how something apparently so un-noteworthy to non musicians is such a massive deal to us players. I remember my first get together/rehearsal well (ahem, a few years ago), & it still has a special place in my heart to this day. First big step Mary, now for lots of smaller ones, each a little challenge in it's own right, but equally, each a little victory.
Gigging by summer eh! & why not - fantastic! A goal is a great way of adding focus to your band, but don't let it be a negative pressure on you. Sure, welcome it, but park it for the time being, & just soak up the vibe :)
