I've mainly played the piano completely relying on reading the music, I do pick things up by ear but I haven't really ever improvised.
When my Sister and Chris were married, I went with them to watch Paul play a couple of times. I was amazed at how well he played the guitar and sang!
Then came the real challenge. Paul asked me to play the keyboard at Church. I said I'd have a go, but to be honest I didn't have a clue. Just going by the chords was quite difficult as I was so used to having every note written down. I then started to do some singing, again playing and singing was something I'd never really done.
After doing this for a while, Paul asked if I wanted to play with Silver feet. I was always ridiculously nervous, but I started to gain confidence.
I was really excited to be invited to play with Chibber. I've enjoyed every minute, we have a great laugh and I feel really fortunate to be playing with such a talented bunch of people!
