Imagine this...

A small performance space, people just keep showing up with instruments. Sure, there are chairs, but join the circle of people wailing, squeezing, hammering, what have you. There are thirty or more - playing the old favorites until midnight. There's a famous family band from Ukraine...they lead and point out solists, rhythms, etc. It just gets louder and louder. Shaun says: "There'll be a lot more of this, but next time with alcohol."

My goal is to learn to play - just a few chords, and keep up. Oh, to be part of the tight-packed jam.
