Popped my bluegrass cherry.

Today I played at my first bluegrass jam.

I played at my first bluegrass jam because I learned how to play any song by ear.

I learned how to play any song by ear because I learned how to improvise in every key.

I learned how to improvise in every key because I practiced guitar scales at work several times a day.

I practiced guitar scales at work several times a day because I needed a new nervous habit.

I needed a new nervous habit because I quit smoking.

So, congrats on quitting smoking, then.

Bluegrass....that's pretty fast, intricate stuff.

I'm an excitable boy. It suits me.

Ooooh, love Warren. I got to see him once in Dallas. I think I love you even more, now.

I live to enable your joy.

Zevon hits me on some visceral level I don't understand. "Roland" and "Play it all night long" are two of my favorite songs and I have no idea why.

For me it's "Play it", "Desperados Under the Eaves" and "Accidentally, Like a Martyr".
