I want to play the blues a lot but need some help with titles! On BIAB, there are some blues tunes many by W C Handy - scored for guitar - that I can play the tune over the top of - soprano works best and it comes off sounding like Branford's playing on his high concept album I Heard You Twice The First Time (which I like a lot). I could page through all the fake books but unless it says 'blues' in the title, I may not know if it is a true blues or not!
I went to my first gig tonight. It was a blues gig downtown LA near where I live. I was trippin' balls on getting there. I had no idea where I was going. Ended up in a bad neighborhood, drinking beers with some crazy cats that uhh, well you get the idea.
It was FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU*****
I'll just be a jazz musician, it's easier. Or something. Because I don't plan to return, even though it was an awesome first gig. totally wild, spontaneous, but I dunno...
