Over the past two days we’ve been tackling our newest songs that haven’t yet become a part of our live show. It has been particularly exciting watching these songs unfold. For example, I (Gina) have had the luxury this week of getting to play and experiment with a gallery of different guitars and sounds, which is extra exciting for a modest nylon string kinda girl like myself. During one of Charley’s new songs not only did I get to wail on the strat, but I also got to fine tune my whammy skillz. Not bad if I do say so myself. Yesterday, Andrew insisted Matty pull out the wha pedal and Sam and I pretty much fell over laughing as Matty’s telecaster sexed it up. Thursday as we got into one of Andrew’s new songs and Sam broke out the pots and pans in the living room. It’s going to be sweet.
After two very busy days, last night we got a chance to wind down as Matty’s mom prepared a full on Mexican feast equipped with tacos, beans, guacamole, and homemade margaritas. As an inexperienced margarita maker myself, I didn’t blink at the mug full of tequila Jenny poured into the blender. Two margaritas and my tongue was happily numb. We capped the night off with a jam on Rosin and Horsehair in which Matty got to break out his new baritone guitar. Let’s just say, Matty and the rest of the band would make excellent cowboys.
