Last Thursday I once again visited the Blues Jam at the Cross Roads Blues Club. It's hard to describe just how much I enjoy visiting and playing at the place. The atmosphere is great, the music is brilliant and it's really cool to feel a little bit accepted by these guys, even if Ken has trouble remembering my name (must be his age!)

I started of my little bit by Singing and guitaring on "As The Years Go Passing By" with a really good Jazz/Blues guitarist Alan Garwood, Steve Butt on Snare Drum and a guy who's name I didn't catch playing a tea chest bass. I then joined all the regulars as ChickenBone John took us through the last song of the last jam of the year, appropriately enough "Cross Roads Blues"

It's always a bit hard to tell how well jams are going, I find that I play best when I don't think too much and just let go a bit, which means I haven't really listened much to what I've done! I had some really nice feedback from a few musician's and audience members though so must I must have done OK. I'm hoping to be there tonight to watch the last session of the year.

By the way, if any crossroad regulars find this site, say hello!
