Keeping It Fresh

It’s always a good idea to keep a good balance in your life, which for me usually means, remembering to take a break from work and relax. Lately to do this I’ve been taking the chance to exercise a bit of creativity and have been playing with some mates in an informal band, firstly on guitar, and at the moment on bass. We’ve been practicing a few covers with varying levels of success, but like to warm up with a bit of improv. Here’s some recordings I took at our practice a few weeks ago, which ended up being entirely improvisational. It’s recorded using iPhone, so isn’t amazing quality. Each track starts out a bit rough, but gets better as we sync up and work out what the others are playing.
