    My daughter and I play a gig with a pick up band each year at the Reading MA Street Fair. We rehearsed twice this year. Attached are a few tunes we did. I'm playing my Welch Tele with the Wilde MicroCoils through a '67 Showman and Eminence 15 inch. I'm using a VOX Tonelab front end. I hope you enjoy.

    I'm playing some slide at the end of 3 More Days.

    Nice tunes. Nice job. I always thought it would be cool to do something musical with my children, but I ended up with five son's, and only two are competent musicians so far. I have one pianist (classical music), and one tubist. I suppose there's a chance of something in a jazz combo.....? Oh yeah, nice tele.

    Nice stuff - just one tip: get her to lower the music stand. It's a bit intrusive up there.

    Thanks for the comments. The sound mix is from the sound engineer's board plus 2 mikes for an ambient depth of field. I used my Roland VS 1880. My wife was running video and noticed later that my daughter's music stand was blocking the drummer. Overall we had a lot of fun playing a total of 10 songs. We've done this for the last couple of years. It's a lot more interesting to play with live musicians than in the home studio jam environment. I really misss playing out... Thanks again.
