Burning out from life's stresses.
I wasn't going to attend my weekly jam last night. I had missed the week before out of absolute weariness. I was so afraid of how I would react when/if the gentleman who sings If I could hear My Mother Pray Again lead the song.
Well he did sing it about halfway through the jam session, but by then I had lead a couple of songs, played a break in another and so was feeling calm and refreshed!
My songs - Midnight on the Water, Ashokan Farewell, Bill Cheatam - slowed down a bit of course, Clinch Mountain Backstep, Over the Waterfall, Tombigbee Waltz. The break was on Soldiers Joy.
One person thanked me for leading songs!!! YAY!! I am getting closer to having people request tunes they know I play.
