First show!

  1. Well, my band has been together for about 4 weeks now, and we have our first gig. We're playing at a party on Saturday afternoon. I'm excited, as this is my first gig ever. We're playing a bunch of originals and several covers. Does anyone have any advice on anything I should do to make sure this all works? I have fresh strings, so I'm sounding good. I THINK everything is all set, but one can never be too sure.

    And on the other hand, the first band I was in formed in spring of 2000. They have never played a show anywhere. I guess there's a lot to be said for applying yourself and getting your name out there. :)

    Cool! I wish I was in your shoes... I have to beg my guitarist to gig with me.

    (when that doesn't work I just tell everyone I can that we are having a gig to push him into it.)

    He lets silly things like work, romance, family, home life, health... etc etc get in the way of our playing.
  3. Typical guitarist behavior.
