    I had played many small gigs but this was the first real big gig first big venue. The Loft in Poughkeepsie NY. With my band Stifled I wasn't nervous at all very comfortable with my bass playing. But while tuning bass before first song my E string wouldn't tune right I wanted drop D but the tuning knob was loose and wouldn't tune right. But I still managed to get it close to D and played a great show. I was born to play! (www.myspace.com/stifled.rockband)

    Congratulations! Looks like you guys are going places.

    (For alternate tunings, I am more comfortable bringing a separate bass for each tuning... like on Saturday I will have one tuned to DGCF).
