I'm so proud of myself! I attended a "MOBS" meeting and jam in Portage la Prairie, Manitoba and I am now it's newest member. Gee, it's a good thing that I still had that $20.00 left in my purse for the membership fee. I met about 5 people there who I knew already from working as a waitress at the donut shop before I made a career move to the ice cream parlour. (So, why hasn't anyone told me about this group before? )Everybody was very accepting of me in spite of my limited mando playing abilty. (I have only been playing for less than a year. Two hours of practice a day. Everyday.) Anyway, I didn't know many of their songs, but I managed to strum along, even if my mando was out of tune. How nice it was for one of the members to volunteer to come over this week to re-align my bridge! The beginners group I jammed with even asked me to pick a song (I chose"Wildwood Flower" )and play the lead.(And nobody said I sucked!) I even sang a bit, too. I hope my singing was not as off key as my mando. Anyway, boy can these people play! There really is an amazing talent in Manitoba. Men, women, young, old. And lots of mando players! I even have a new appreciation for b#$*o players!
