I Get To Play Guitar With My Highschool Band!
I am a member of my school's jazz ensemble, and only because the band director found a few loopholes for me. Turned out, I had to be a member of the school's marching/concert band. Being the 16 year old rocker that I am, I couldn't bring my self to learn trombone or anything like that. Besides, I can already read standard notation pretty well.
So a few days ago (Thursday the 12th) the band director comes up to me during my 5th period class (jazz band) and hands me some sheet music. He told me he wanted me to play guitar with the band during halftime next Friday!
So far the only downside I can speculate here is that I am no longer able to hang out with my friends during the football games, and I have to wear the dorky band uniform the whole time... :/
The song I am playing is called "Boo! (Mountain King)" and it seems to actually be a really cool rock song. So when I get to play on Friday, I will be sure to have it filmed and I can share with all of my fellow Jemsiters my first real guitar performance!
