Will Ray Jammin’ With Jeff Foster
Just had to archive this in my StringDancer blog. Ego is a terrible thing to waste.
I didn’t do too bad, I guess. My hands weren’t warmed up, and I was on a borrowed axe with a strap that was a tad too long for me. Those are my excuses and I’m sticking to ‘em.
It was a fun evening, and my little bit up there was over all too soon… would have loved the chance to really stretch out with the man and try some other genres on for size. Will is a walking encyclopedia of unique, cool and unpredictable guitar tricks. His use of slide rings (on both hands, no less), the Hipshot B-Bender, and a fertile imagination make him a player to fear, yet he is an affable, easy-going guy who just loves to play, and it shows. It was a distinct pleasure to jam with him, and I hope I get the chance to do it again sometime.
Thanks to all my old and dear friends at Muncie Music Center for the invitation. It was well-worth the trip up from Bloomington.
