No worries Strato. I'm am spiritual, not religious, my dad was excommunicated for marrying a second time after his first wife deserted him while he was at war. That kinda soured the whole family.
So we were not immersed in 'organized religion'. I have no problem with anyone and their beliefs as long as they are honest in their faith.
I could make several comments here, but . . . . . well you know.

The church I'm connected with is Methodist - and recently came under fire for a pro LGBT stance. Apparently that's not the norm?
Our first song: Room At The Table (For Everyone).

I was recruited by a drummer friend that moved up here in November and we had talked about forming a band, so 'Presto'.
The pianist is classically trained and her husband teaches at Interlochen - a very cool music school up here.
Speaking of which - went and saw Peter Frampton two nights ago there and he said his daughter had gone there.

Anyway - long story longer . . . . . I'm safe, no hidden agenda with this group.
If it gets strange I'll let you know.

Well . . . . This ain't Rock & Roll.
I remember when the Beatles came out and they played this wild, wacky chord - a C7 :)
What a cool sound. Then learning ZZ Top and got into A9 and Am7 - love, love, love. :D

So now I'm having to learn a whole new set of skills - being a jazzer Tom, these are probably nothing new to you, but . . .
A/C#, A7/C#, Bsus, Bb2, G2, D/F#, :? - it's not so much that they're hard, but surprised at how common they are.
I have to look them up and then try and find inversions, so we're not all playing the same thing.
I still like to think of myself as a box crayons. :mrgreen:

And they seem to have never heard of ABACAB - tryin' my best to keep up with some of the changes . . :lol:
By the way - absolutely loving Summer here in Northern Michigan - Glorious! 8-)
Hope you're all doing well.

Never too late to learn something new and those chords can sound very beautiful. I already learned quite a few of them before I got into jazz, like D (or D7) over F# bass note is a common thing in pre-war blues (Scrapper Blackwell/Robert Johnson). As a teenager I discovered how to play a nice sounding vamp of Am and D9 - IIRC that was inspired by listening to early Santana. Was a good one to try to improvise over with the little knowledge I had.
Glad you enjoy the summer in your new home! :)
