No, the angels didn't blow trumpets. The sky didn't crack open with sunbeams. The earth didn't shake.
But Sidy did lean over and hold out his fist for me to punch when I finally got the 3rd solo part of Mendiani down.
'You can feel it, now, can't you?' He asked.
And then we went on the 4th solo, which, remarkably, I really HAD remembered after hearing it only a couple times in class. I had a few little mistakes, but I was pretty darn close on the handing. Which means that now that I practiced it for a little while with Sidy, it's mine.
Lisa was here today too... which was fantastic because we are working on being able to jump in on each other's part. (She's on the dun duns.) We are trying to get so that we can just pick up in the correct place by listening to each other.
At the end of the lesson I felt great. Like, yeah, this is hard, but I can do it. We can do it.
And we rock.
(And maybe the angels were blowing a few horns. Who knows?)
