    My musician friends and I got together for a rehearsal and I brought along my Zoom H2 to record it. Lo and behold, I took our least crappy takes and releasing them for your listening pleasure (or whatever you want to call it).

    We have a bad habit of rehearsing once every hundred years or so, so there are plenty of mistakes. But I think they're decent takes for a couple of lazy highschool kids.

    The songs include There is No Greater Love, Footprints, Relaxin' at Camarillo and There Will Never Be Another You. My friend is playing guitar and I'm playing bass on the first two, and vice versa on the latter two.

    Comments are appreciated, thanks!

    Thanks a lot Jim. It's funny, I thought the best song I posted was No Greater Love, which has my friend on guitar and me on bass.

    Wow, you're only 17 playing like this? Great stuff, man.

    Listening to There Will Never Be Another You right now. I like the ending of the second chorus, where you quoted Scofield's version (Not You Again).

    I'm actually trying to buy a Zoom H2 from someone now myself.

    Hey James, if you're not busy tomorrow night we're playing at the Interlude coffee shop at 8. You could stop by sometime if you wanted to see us live.

    And thanks Ken!

    Great sound...agree your the star of the show.

    What's the guitar and amp?

    Sounds very spruce top...even if it isn't.

    That is some sweet tone and it is gonna be real fine when you step to the next level.

    Thanks again for all the comments.

    And the guitar is my friend's Heritage H575 (maple top?) through a Super Champ XD (great amp for the $$).
