1381 tasting notes

Between Nina’s and Ashmanra I am learning to be in touch with my more sensitive side. A few years ago I would have smelled the cup and said ain’t no way! Now, well, this is really nice. Rose, apples, and black tea. Not in my wildest dreams, but it works and it is good.

To feel a bit more manly while sipping I am trying to teach myself the bass part to Ain’t No Grave by Russ Taff (off Under Their Influence). It leans towards Zeppelin in places. We are thinking about doing a version of this in church. The ladies agreed to do this if we did a Gaither song with them but they want to tone in down a few notches. We have a drummer that plays professionally in a rock band. We have two metal head guitarists, and me (a punker and the least trained of the bunch). I think the odds of it toning down are pretty slim. Except, I am just not hearing it. Best I can tell it revolves around three chords. I am just not hearing the changes. One of the guys who will be playing guitar is normally our bass player. I guess I’ll have to have him give me a crash course so I don’t cause a train wreck at 100 decibels.

Lol! So glad you are enjoying it! Real men drink tea, but keep on thumping that bass. My husband always has looked hot playing bass, and throwing a teacup into that image would only make him more gorgeous! :)

Find the photo of Ozzy and Slash sipping tea together, maybe it will inspire him. Not that I would know, but I am pretty sure your husband has to be hotter than either of them.

Another bass story – when I get tired trying to learn this song for church I have been thumping bass along with Geezer on Black Sabbath’s Mob Rules (don’t over think it). After the CD shut off, I asked my wife in the living room if I was too loud in the Den. My son yells down the stairs, “YES!” Weird, my dad always said the same thing. In fact he shut the power off to my room one day.

Sorry about the Gaither thing…us little ol’ church ladies think Guy Penrod is just flat hunky.

Gmathis it amuses me that I have no idea what a Guy Penrod is. :) The song is a typical 3 chord bouncy Southern Gospel. It does nothing for me personally but then it’s not about me. I’ll have fun no matter what we play.

You need to sit yourself down in front of a Gaither concert, musical preferences notwithstanding. One of the Gaither Vocal Band, shoulder length gray hair and a scrizzly beard and a honey-smooth baritone/tenor that I’m sure has made even Episcopals raise their hands in church ;)

Oh, I’ve saw him in the background on the Russ Taff video. I’ll try to Youtube him. Can’t let those partying Episcopals get one up on me.
