Well I met a couple of guys that In work with who have a Blues/Classic Rock band. So we were discussing getting together.
So the guitarist (a good friend of mine) put me to the ultimate test. He said we would get up there and do Mustang Sally, Roadhouse Blues and another 12 bar song I never heard of. While I was telling him I was reluctant because I never had a run through before hand, he was up and talking to the guy heading the jam. Then before I knew anything else he said we are up. I looked at him and smirked something. SO we started with the song I never heard of, it went pretty good, everyone clapped (more than I could say for the house band
) Then we did Sally and people were really enjoying their selves, which made me relax.
I was then expecting Roadhouse when he said to me " Do ya know any blues riffs" So he started in on some blues improve and made me follow. I wanted to kill him for putting me on the spot, but it went really well. We got many compliments and were invited back.
Not bad for never even rehearsing this stuff before hand. He wanted to test me to see how I would hold up under pressure, and I even surprised myself. Still I was pissed because I never got to do Roadhouse Blues. Not because I like the song, but because I was expecting it.
All and all an enjoyable evening and I will be back up there again
