Nathan plays with John Schmidt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We went to a John Schmidt concert on Thursday, thanks to Ryan and Michelle. We got there late, and we were going to leave early to get James again, but stayed for the whole thing after this! We were in the back, and check out what happened....

John Schmidt had an unplanned part in the concert where he asked for audience participation to come up and Jazz add lib with him. The person had to
1.Be able to joke
2.Have done some jazz improv before
3.Say from the audience the Jazz Blue's scale in C
4. Not be forced up by other people.

Before he was really done talking, Nathan was yelling out the blues scale, and John said, that'll do, come on up! Nathan did awesome, I didn't even know that he could play like this, and John Schmidt was like "He's good", Nathan then said "You too", and the audience cracked up. Anything you hear up high is Nathan, while John played low. Here's the video:

That's so neat! I always love that portion of Jon Schmidt's concerts when he pulls someone up from the audience. That's so cool that it was Nathan this time! They did great!
