Do you jam with your family? I know Josh does - his dad Tim is a trumpeter and I've had the pleasure of jamming with them. In my humble estimation there probably aren't more than half a dozen things in the world more fun than making music with family. If you do - please post a clip or picture or something here. I hope this is a fun thread. Here's my clip:
I was just going through some stuff looking for website photos and found that my wife took a cellphone video of my brother Dave and I jamming a while ago. He is a traditional jazz trumpeter but also a pretty good hand on guitar. I am occasionally able to con one of my brothers or my sister or one of my cousins into jamming - it's a ton of fun. My mom used to have a family band when she was a kid... the "Hansen sisters" they played dances - that's how they made fun money as kids. One of my little cousins - actually not so little anymore - in his early teens - is just outrageously talented. He's a piano player but my brother gave him one of his old cornets and he said: "Cool - this is fun"... a couple hours later he was playing heads to songs as we were jamming and doing a pretty decent job of it. But the thing that completely baked my head was when he stopped us and said: "Wait a sec - this song needs an F# - I don't know how to finger the sharps yet - how do you finger an F#?" ... now this is HOURS afer he has first picked up a brass instrument... So Dave showed him and he said: "OK - thanks." and then he played the head pretty much flawlessly. I just about dropped over. I don't know if he wants to be a musician but if he does - it's his for the taking - that much is clear.
You get one chance to enjoy this day, but if you're doing it right, that's enough.
