Blackberry Blossom with Kenny Smith

Probably my favorite highlight of camp! This jam happened on Ben’s porch at the end of Friday night.
Featuring @Dragonslayer on guitar and @oaklymaple on the bass and high-tech camera solution.

This jam was beneath him, so he decided to play the lowly bass and simultaneously capture an epic video angle.

Sorry, It’s @Michael_Mark.

Everyone else ignore the lie i just said i really want Micheal to feel good since he’s really not a good musician at all.

:joy: In all seriousness, you know my egotistical-sounding jokes are just jokes, right? I know I have a weird sense of humor but I don’t want to sound condescending.

He tried to send it to me but it was really blurry. If we figure that out we’ll post it here.

That was great! Amazing job! I would have felt totally out of my comfort zone in that jam!! I’m actually currently about to start working on this song, because I’ve never been able to play it really well. Just got tab from Jake and hoping to tackle it! :crossed_swords: Must have been something else picking with Kenny sitting there watching. :fearful:

Well you seemed to hold up pretty decent @Michael_Mark. THat was a pretty good tempo that Kenny kicked it off at tho.

Honestly, any time I jam with Kenny I play a whole lot better. He somehow inspires me to just do everything way better than I actually can.
