In my case, I am learning bass lines, so it helps me pick apart the structure of a song and figure out what should happen when. It doesn't… Continue

Ready to bust loose!

Dear members,

What a great week! I went to Houston, played and recorded a song that our producer says is "world music". Song was written by Reames/Folse 2002 called "Mother Earth". Got a chance to expand into a less bluesy feel, different type of

vocal, out of my comfort zone. Producer staring at me through the glass- for the first time in a long while, I didn't know what I should do for this song. I had performed it live many times, but this was different. How would you feel if a man… Continue

What do I do next

So I have written an albums worth what I think are some good songs. I did a few solo things to get my feet wet and find out if I was cut out to perform. I took that momentum and founded a band, The Hampton Bridge. We played a few small things to feel out band arrangements and find our "stage grove". After a whole bunch of rehearsing we have recorded quite a few things and blown the roof off of a few local clubs. What do I do next. How do get the music industry to hear my stuff. I really enjoy… Continue

These sessiuns are usually lead by one person who keeps the group on track with the theme of that purpose. The Trinity Hall Irish Pub in Dallas have been sponsoring sessiuns for a number of years under the direction of the "Traditional… Continue
