I gigged recently and the onstage sound was awful. Guitar was too loud and bassy, I couldn't hear the singer very well or myself. I said to the guitarist that we had to sort this out as I was not enjoying myself at all. He said the sound out front was good and it didn't matter if it sounded bad where we were. He has a wireless and goes out front during soundcheck and during the first couple of songs to see how the mix is. I also think he is always surrounded by a glorious bubble of guitar whenever he gigs so doesn't appreciate my feelings on the matter. Anyway, enough complaining about the guitarist. My question is do you guys think that a great onstage sound is an absolute imperative or it doesn't matter as long as it sounds good to the audience?
