My church is hosting the play L'il Abner, and the music director asked if I could play bass for it. It a lot of orchestra and jazz stuff, and I cant read standard notation at all. So I get the 60 page book, and really struggle through the first 2 songs. Then I got lucky and figured out what G was, and went from there, and did pretty good. I cant say I did great, but Im getting there. Now I have to learn about 35 songs before friday, althouhg I do have 3, 3 hour rehersals this week. But hey, Im not gonna make a fool of myself!
