Subject: RE: Harmonies By The Number

You're right, kinda. I do minimize my skills. One rmemorable night a couple of years ago, my group was supposed to be singing, and I had my electric guitar with me. Several other groups didn't show, so the minister got up and started singing, and the guys egged me on (volunteered me, against my will.) We were a crazy "band." There was an ancient black lady playing sanctified barrel house piano, a drummer, a 14 year old kid on trombone (This was a House Of Prayer church, with history leading back to New Orleans) and me. I must say, we dounded pretty darned good.

Under duress, I can get by.
