    If you don't, or won't, or wouldn't, thank you, this thread is not for you.
    I'll be back for that perspective in another thread...

    If you do, on some kind of regular basis (i.e. not "I went once ten years ago") why?
     
  2. I had a major stroke eleven years ago. Nine and a half years ago I started to go to a local open mic night to get used to playing with/in front of other people again. These days I go on occasion to support that same venue and to see friends of mine that hang there. I no longer go to play, as I have a few bands that I play with regularly.

    Playing acoustic blues isnt a hot gig item here in rural Iowa. I got a couple guys that like it and are good at it. Occasionally we pull a gig, and make $100 each...jamming every week keeps us tight and expands our playlist. Also, it's fun.
