Last night I had a gig backing up a couple friends of mine. One guitarist and I have a band together, and we started an acoustic project with another local songwriter swapping each others songs to book full nights at local venues without having to hire openers or anything. That makes two acoustic guitars and DB. All three of us sing. I also play percussion on a few songs. During a break, a nice couple approached the three of us and exclaimed how they loved the music. I had a nice chat with the female about how her father is a bassist in New York, and how beautiful an instrument upright bass can be. During our third set, they brought up shots of whiskey as a token of their appreciation. Only thing is they brought up only two. One for each guitar player. As if my contribution to the music wasn't noticed or appreciated... I wasn't much for taking shots that night, but I never said anything otherwise. It really hurt my pride to be left out like that, as if I hadn't put as much time or effort in as anyone else. I know this isn't much of a "humor" type thing, but maybe others can share their experiences as being completely ignored in the rhythm section. That poopie bummed me out.
