I've played in church for about 5 years. Just last year I was asked to join a local band that was in need of a bassist so I excitedly took the offer. Practiced for a week then it was time for our first gig (kinda short notice but I've known the band for a while beforehand. I was a little nervous, even though it was a small venue and I had played much larger places with our worship band, I couldn't help but be a little shakey. . Ya know? Set up was awesome, rig sounded great, and I was ready to go. Drummer kicks off first song and two notes in my A string breaks! I'm beet red but finish the song with minimal damage. Then I get to use the headliner's bass (American made Fender.. yesss!) The rest of the show went great and the night goes down in my book as an almost disaster that I will tell my kids about when they are older. . Anybody else have a memorable first gig experience?
