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.
