    Had a very pleasant afternoon in the company of @Jeanette @tenorviol at Ron's abode (thanks for the hospitality)
    The three of us got together to try and improve our playing in a small group, i have issues with reading/timing and this is a good way to try and improve on both issues.
    We started off very shaky but gradually grew into it, towards the end sounding a lot better. Our best effort being 'Groovy kind of Love' which i have to say Jeanette's reading and playing was very good.
    No pressure guys but we could aim to play this tune at the cafe meet :eek:
    Enjoyable 3 hours of playing :thumb:

    Thanks Ron, Jeanette :)

    Thank you Kev, I had a great time grooving with you guys :)

    My reading and timing finally feels like it is coming together, must do it again soon.

    Thanks Ron for looking after us and your patience.

    Just to add, you really can't beat playing with other people it's even more fun than improvising so if you have the opportunity grab it :)

    Sounds like you had a good afternoon.

    I think I have an addiction to playing with other people (ooh err missus!)

    I would definitely recommend joining a group - there will be one at your level somewhere nearby.

    I've just discovered I'd bought some nice little savoury things to go with lunch lurking in the fridge... I forgot about them whilst I was woking away...
