On Friday night, before our sound check, we were warming up in the lobby of The Haven. All we had was John’s guitar. He started playing the intro to A Song for Ab. Michael began stomping out his drum beat. Wes, Austin, and Ben joined in, singing their instrumental parts. And at the end of the song, we all just stood there, giddy, loving the ways that music can fill a space, the ways that a song can sound so different with parts removed, and loving that we are all creating this together.
After the show, we recruited a friend to record it on their smartphone.
