I traveled from China to Bahrain on Wednesday, arrived in Manama early Thursday morning, spent the next two days getting my bearings and reporting on the uprising/revolution in this country. Played some guitar in my hotel room, but did not spend a great deal of time looking for places to play as I had so much professional work to do. Last night, however, going out to speak to some regular, middle class Bahrainis about their country, I took my guitar – just in case. No, nothing happened. Except when I returned to the hotel and the two men at the reception desk asked if I could play some music for them. So I played “Wicked Game” in the lobby of the hotel. Stay tuned, because the plan is that tonight I will take part in a jam session in Manama. Will report on that tomorrow.
