If I wasn't able anymore to listen back to recordings of live gigs...I would consider that a major impedance to my progress.
I want to post some stuff from the new blues trio I have been working with. Some really tasty stuff.
lol ... here's Larry after first hearing his playing recorded: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aNUr__-VZeQ
Seriously, this is good stuff ... as I'm sure your blues will be!
