You know, no matter how much complex modern harmony they teach me, I do still love me some twelve-bar blues. Here’s one I made up the other day before work:
I decided to call it “Ant Bite Blues,” in honor of the fact that moments before I recorded it I was bitten on the foot by a fire ant out in my front yard. It’s not my best performance, but I think it’s fair work considering how little shedding I’ve been able to do lately. Besides, no matter how many mistakes I may have made, listening to this recording is a lot more fun than getting that ant bite.
As always, if you’re interested in hearing more of my trombone playing, please have a listen to my Musical Résumé.
