Confessions of a Wannabe Guitarist

My second year of law school I convinced my study group they needed to blow off steam by forming a band.  Each of them had vast musical backgrounds and had basically quit their bands to go to law school.  These were the kind of guys who got a group of carrels in the law library basement and played music and video games in between reading cases, writing papers, and outlining classes.

They finally agreed that if I got a bass, they would form a band.  For my sake we picked a few three-chord punk songs to cover and met an hour or two each Saturday morning before studying.  I wasn’t very good.  In fact the guitarist was nice enough to come over a few times to run through our cover songs with me.  We called ourselves “Supplemental Jurisdiction.”

It was a blast!

It is years later, the band broke up,  and I am still not very good, but I still love it.  So I started this blog.
