After a way too long hiatus, Snake Suspenderz had a full-on rehearsal tonight. We covered a lot of ground too. We played pretty much nothing but new stuff, that is, new to the quartet. Here's the list:
- Sunny Afternoon
- Wonderful World
- Paper Moon
- Fly Me To The Moon
- Love For Sale
- Tiny Bubbles
On Summertime I played my new(ish) melodica. It's a Hohner Alto model (the kind with the "chiclet" keys rather than the piano keyboard). The guys seemed to like it and Thad said that some of the licks (and the key I'm most comfortable in so far) would fit with Love For Sale, so that's why we tried it out.
I really like Sunny Afternoon (big Kinks fan) but I don't think I have it quite down yet. It's a superior ukulele tune.
Wonderful World, Paper Moon and Tiny Bubbles are all songs that I used to do but sort of let lapse. I've been working on bringing my old list back up to speed as well as working on new stuff.
It just occurs to me that we did one that we already had down... Mack The Knife.
We also talked about a couple upcoming gigs and some other "biz" talk. It was a good rehearsal, but we need to do a bit more regular ones.
And more gigs wouldn't hurt my feelings either. But what else is new?
