Andy took a reprieve this week leaving me to lay lead for the first time in a while. i broke out the old Phred Rags the Guitar, fresh off a recent painting and took it for a ride. From the first lead forward I was feeling close to the Phred and the the world of lead. It didn't seem too distant and while dexterity might have been lacking, attitude and tone felt okay. Alan stuck around for all but the last song and we cobbled together a pretty respectable jam this week.
