    There's no way I'd have gotten up there the first time if anybody expected me to sound like a sax cd!! At first it was just blending in with long tones on a chorus, fills here and there and an occasional 8 or 16 bar solo. At the time there was an excellent lead guitar player available weekly. It wasn't until about 6 months later that he became unavailable and by then I was ready to do whatever was needed. Still not sure if I'd be able to do a whole 4 minute number as the main instrument without a lot of preperation though.

    What I'm saying in a roundabout way is-------it's quite possible you're more ready than you think and sitting in on rehearsals may be just what you need to 'get over the hump.' Good luck and God bless you.

    OK--I can't even agree with the accordian comment anymore. I was in the Olive Garden mens room yesterday and the piped in music starts on a jazzy/bluesy tune with the accordian as the main instrument. I stayed in the bathroom to hear it all!! I've no idea who it was, but the guy/gal had great articulation.
