Jam Session with Mike McGowan and Nick Clark

I jammed yesterday with Mike McGowan and Nick Clark. Mike is a very good drummer and best friend of my next door neighbor's son, Bryan. He has come over to jam in my little home studio many times in the last year and a half, but this time we were jamming in his mom's garage. ;) Nick is a very talented bass player with excellent chops and very tasty note choices. I was very impressed.

Our audience consisted of my neighbors, Dan Chianella, and his son, Bryan. We basically just messed around with free-form jams, funk and we even butchered some covers for fun. I played my R7 Les Paul through my Boogie amp and Bogner cab with the Jekyll & Hyde distortion pedal and it rocked. I have never sounded better. ;) Got lots of compliments on my tone, both clean and OD.

Overall, it was a lot of fun and I hope to do it again soon. We had great chemistry despite our rather large age difference. ;) Mike attends a college that is located in a different part of the state, so playing regularly with him will not be possible. I do, however, hope to get together more with Nick in the meantime to collaborate on some originals and just jam. Perhaps we can get a band together this summer and play out now and then. I would really enjoy that.
