Well, bluegrass, anyway.
I promised some folks that I'd listen to some music that their band does pretty regularly and see if I could sing with them for a couple of things. There's a small concert coming up in two weeks, so I sat down tonight to have a good long listen to the cd's they've loaned me, especially since there are a lot of harmony bits I have to work out by ear.
I was doing all right for a while- there are a few bouncy gospel-type songs, a couple silly things... I put everything in a list on my computer and had them spitting out randomly so I could pick up as much as I could on the fly. We are dealing with bluegrass, though, and I finally hit a couple really wrenching ones, and now I'm crying so much I had to shut the music off because my throat closed off.
Crying! Because of a couple of songs! What the hell is the matter with me? And how am I supposed to do this concert if I can't even LISTEN to the damn stuff?
