There’s nothing like an AUS meeting to cool yourself off with all the coolness it provides in the hottest month of the year, right? This month, on Aug. 8, we tried our hand at the old Creedence Clearwater hit “Have You Ever Seen the Rain?” – here’s the Presentation Format from the meeting, with the extra bells and whistles. It’s amazing how, at first strum, you can think a song is fairly simple and not too tough, yet during the meeting, Bob can bring you into the song to see all the rhythmic tricks that one can play. (We also had great fun bringing back last month’s KISS song “Rock and Roll All Nite,” and banging it around with great fervor.
Yet Bob had another trick up his sleeve (not easy when you’re wearing short sleeves): he filmed us playing “Have You Ever Seen the Rain?” This means that if you weren’t at the meeting, you can watch and listen to the video on our YouTube channel, at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=amhXIHrDsss and you can download the Presentation Version of the song (link above) and have it ready when we perform it at a future meeting. Watch for more of this kind of thing in the future. You won’t have to worry about missing a song when you miss future meetings. Way cool! Be sure to send us any comments you may have about the video, and what you’d like to see recorded at AUS meetings coming up.
Our next meeting will be at the Memorial United Methodist Church, as usual, from 7 – 8:30 p.m. on September 12. We hope to see you there.
