Murphy's Law strikes again!

  1. I was a little late leaving the house for our show tonight, so having my bass stack, guitar, drum stuff and bass in the car I decided there wasn't enough time to make room for a second bass...


    ...intro of the 3rd song of our set...
    I snapped a string! D'oh!

    On the other hand, I'm quite proud I did fine jumping around the neck to play the song in a different position. :)
    A guy lended me a P copy which gave me a cool flat bassy sound. It also had an awesome pinky fluffy strap.

    on top of that, we rocked and have over 60 emails to go on our mailing list, so it's all good! :)

    I decided to leave my backup bass in the trailer for our NYC gig, and, also during the third song, "Snap!" Matt from Reel Big Fish actually saw it happen and gave me his MM whilst the guitar tech replaced the string during the 4th song.
