I was thinking about this last night for some reason. I was a high school kid, living in Starks, LA. The youth leader at church played guitar and sang, and his brothers who lived nearby played drums and bass. We all got together and actually played a couple of gatherings, but mostly just for fun. I remember I had some kind of Jaguar copy electric thing, and a Sears amp. The rig sounded awful and my playing was probably even worse, but it was fun! My dad and I had played guitars together and sung harmony way before this, but it was my first time playing in a "band", and I was hooked. There's safety in numbers IMO, and to this day I am uncomfortable playing acoustic and singing alone in front of people. What was your first ensemble experience with music?
