Reflections on Grind Show 7-28-12 and Why it Was Awesome

Reasons the Grind was awesome last night:

  • It was an encouraging crowd (as opposed to the silent kind).
  • I felt really relaxed which allowed me to hit some of the single string stuff better.
  • My family came and that rocked.
  • My dad took some great photos which I can use to promote future gigs.
  • I got some tips from people who thanked me for the music
  • and … I remember most the lyrics!!! (Bonus) Rocket Man felt really great as if the room changed colors.
  • I play the Grind again 8-11-2012 7:30-9 I hope some of you can make it out.
