First let me say that my practice sessions have been rotating between a dorean and major scale, swan lake and trying to improv over bluegrass.  I had my second jam session since i started playing the violin, 3 weeks ago. 


I played the guitar the first song and the harmonica the second to settle my nurves.  The third song was Wait so Long from trampled by turtles.  I was a hair flat on one section and i fumbled my way through the solo's.  After the song, i didn't feel that it went that well.  But to my suprise, in unison, the two of the others said, "lets do that again".

I was a little shocked.  That's when I heard it.  "You nailed it".  For those of you who have not played with anyone else, that is the best three words you can hear.  Upon their request, I think we played that song 4 or 5 times. 

Yea it's nice when your wife says you are getting better, but if you have the chance, play with others.  It's great.

That sounds like fun. Happy that you got some recognition and reassurance for what you accomplished.
