Tonight at Crave

I went to Crave Grill tonight for the open mike and worked on a few songs that I am trying to re-attach to my brain so I can just sail through them at the Tillie's show ...
Two short sets ... I did

Things You Never Know - it's been awhile for this one, but the work I have been putting in paid off and it was a pretty good version
The One I Chased Away - I did fine with the lyrics, but messed up the chords for the chorus every time. I know what I need to work on with it now though
Hides - Cause I had to do something familiar, and it was a serious set. Interesting intro this time out, found some new stuff that I hadn't done before.

Ghosts - With the new lines, it worked just fine. I don't have it locked in my brain yet, but I do well enough that a simple cheat sheet (as compared to a really complicated one) will do just fine.
Need - I think I have this down, but the 2nd verse still gave me a couple of little fits.
How Can I Miss You? -Just end the set on an up note, after a lot of depressing songs. Backed up by the Crave Hillbilly Chorus (this title becomes very funny if you see the restaurant)

So, this weekend looks good, I'm going to work on more songs tomorrow and then give my fingers and guitar a rest on friday.

Oh, Lojo Russo friday night here in Des Moines.
