We invited the Fratucello’s and the rest of their band Arkidia to our house to practice a song or two. After setting up all the gear and propping my keyboard up on a couple of travel containers we were ready to start practicing our first song - “First Times”.
It was pretty hard to explain to them the song and chords in Spanish (they use Do Re Mi instead of the letter or number system), but once we overcame that obstacle they were really fast learners.
The group consisted of: Pablo on drums, Bruno on bass, Sergio on guitar, Tim on uke, Me on keys.
Bruno also managed to cook an asado while we were practicing. He would keep playing his bass as he was poking the sausages on the parilla. By the way, I found out that Bruno’s family comes from Sicily i.e. mafia territory.
Maté was also being passed around the whole time, in good Argentine fashion.
We shot a live video of us performing “First Times”, hopefully it will be posted tomorrow, internet willing.
