Strawbale Jam

In honour of Malcolm's birthday this week's session at Secret Bass was expanded to include just about any sort of musical instrument. As well as the usual djembes and dun duns we had my electric guitar, a drum kit, Malcolm's synth and Tibetan singing bownls, didgeridoo, arabic drum and assorted shakers, bells and other noise makers.

Thus ensued several hours of jamming around such diverse styles as reggae, jazz, blues, prog rock (?) and arabic rhythms. I have not had much experience of improvising in a group, but I managed to play some basic chords and even solo a bit. Considering how little I have played lately I am amazed that my finger are not more sore.

We had a break for food in Fabrizia's cozy loft before heading back to the studio for another session.

I would really like to do more group work apart from the drum circle. If anyone is interested in some informal jamming then give me a shout.
