About last night
The open mike went well. I had stirred up some stuff the week before with my comments to the rather rude young man, but it amounted to nothing.

There were only a few players there, so I got 2 sets.

Low Self Esteem
Trophy Wife
Color Of Your Eyes

How Can I Miss You?

Safety sets, but just as well. I did mess up the bridge of Color Of Your Eyes, but I covered fairly well.

The amusing part of the evening was the sound guy lecturing me on how to work a microphone. I've spent a lot of time working out my microphone technique. I put the mike fairly high, so my head is a little back, so my throat is more open. Then I sing a little below it, so I don't pop it. These guys wanted me to sing right into it, cause it's "real directional". Yeah, I know that. I had them laughing by the end of my description of what singing right into it would do.

I think I am going to an open mike at the Alpine next week, which runs every other week. If that's good then I'll switch back and forth. But I do think this will be a regular thing now. Playing is a good thing.

I think I might have paid to see the microphone thing ....

Oh and Yay! for playing out regularly again.
