I hung out for about an hour and a half and heard some great jams. I played two easy songs and got the shirt. I had fun. I felt intimidated by the musical talent around me, but that's a big part of why I do it... to try to overcome the urge to feel that way. I'm pretty sure that Steve Caudill expected me to break into a solo on at least on of them, but no... "he's strictly rhythm, he don't want to make it cry or sing." Plus, I didn't have anything to drink. The digestive system isn't up to that much of a challenge after yesterday's problems, so no inhibition-reducing potions for me today.
The best part was getting up on stage with a fellow named Tarcio Souza. He's a saxophone player, an Iris engineer, and somebody with a great story. He worked for my first client back in 1993, we've been friends ever since, and he's unquestionably a great Lotus Notes success story. I'll write about this someday soon. I've already got his permission. Update: Declan has a picture of me and Tarcio
Tomorrow I'll remember to bring the fake sheets for all the songs that I had pulled out of my old collection. In fact, they're already in my pack.
