We're jammin' in London
I can't believe it has more than four months since I last picked up an instrument.
We'll my head might not have believed it, but my fingers certainly did -and my shoulders are killing me after playing bass for 2.5 hours.
Anja organised a jam for us at Enterprise Studios on Denmark St just off Charing Cross Road. You'll know you're in the right place when you get to the rows and rows of music shops.
The studio is down a skungey looking alley - musician wanted and gig posters plastered all over the alley walls. The studio is huge and with dozens of rooms off the maze-like hallways it's easy to lose your way - I did on the way out.
Our room came complete with drum kit, guitar, bass and mics - all high quality.
With three guitarists and two guitars I was relegated to bass - which meant for a good workout! I haven't properly played bass since my High School jazz band days.
After a slightly rusty start the four of us were soon blasting our way through cover songs and a few original numbers.
We're hoping to make this a regular event - and when I get my first job I'm off to purchase my very own UK guitar!
