Nice to hear. I've honestly doubted that 99% figure, and still do. But I'll gladly accept any positive feedback I can get. No denying my ego problem is written all over this issue, but it's really not just me. And the band practice point is legit: it dictates much of the song selection, keys performed in, harmonies and leads alotted. That's very different from a free and open jam session, after all. Two groups are definitely better than one in terms of clutter; too bad it isn't practical. My hearing issues make me useless in the big band settings. I have trouble accepting that, just as I have trouble accepting musical and other limitations. It wrecks my illusion of omnipotence.
