Well this past weekend I finally got my big break. I got to go out to Charlotte Lowes Motor Speedway with The Word on the Street Band for the Little Trees 300 and the Winston Cup race. I've only been playing bass for 4 months after converting over from guitar and had never played either publicly before other than in a tiny church setting. This was my first time in front of the general public, if that's what you can call a bunch or partying NASCAR fans. It was just like my first sexual experience in the following ways: 1. I had long anticipated this event, but when the moment finally came, I was way too nervous, and not sure what the first step was. I had to be told what to do every step of the way. 2. Although I had practiced many many times by myself, it did not even slightly compare to doing it with someone else. 3. Even after practicing over and over, I still froze when the time came to make my first move and couldn't remember what came next. I was all thumbs for awhile. 4. Once I had what I thought was a good rhythym going, I was hoping everyone else involved thought so too. 5. When I finally got settled down and started getting into it, I really started to enjoy myself. 6. I had wood the whole time it was going on. 7. It was over much too soon. 8. I can't stop talking about it to my buds. 9. I am now obsessed and can't wait to do it again! That's it for my first gig story. Here's a pic. That's me in the back on the left almost against the tour bus. It was the most fun I've ever had with clothes on!
