Air Guitar does not count sorry
My story is eerily similar to Chris's.
I was a tromboning fool from 4th Grade through College. I was an All-State Band Member for a year and I was really good if I say so myself. I toyed ever so briefly with focusing on music some how but never really did.
One joy of college though was playing in some cool Jazz Bands and Combos, having some feature pieces in which I was the soloist. It was great and I will always treasure my playing days.
I miss it, I got the old man out last month after we moved and played a little for my son, he laughed. I would love to join a Jazz combo or community band if I had more time, such is life with a 1 year old
My wife...was an all-state Vocalist three years! She is an amazing singer and one of her steady gigs is wedding soloist. She also can play the guitar, piano and drums. She is an awesome talent...
