    Open A and E strings Allow Bassist to Successfully Acquire and Open Beer During Run of Song

    Area bassist Skwee walked into bandmates' kitchen Monday night, during a run of Missionary Man by the Eurythmics and opened the beer mid-song. Band members in living room continued to practice song, and gave bass player a hearty thumbs up and vocally praised the man for his agility, consistency, right-hand technique, and drive.

    Oh---don't forget that the purchase of the new wireless transmitter is what allowed the entire endeavor to take place!

  7. Nice - I played a party once where my 20 foot cable allowed me to reach the keg between songs. That was a fun party :hyper:
     
  8. I remember when I got my first wireless. During a gig I got curious as to how far I could get and still have it work. I wandered off stage and started strolling around. Then I pushed a door open and went into a bathroom. Then I realized that I had to pull the door open to get out. It was a pretty busy song and I finished it up sitting on the counter in the mens room of the club....... never missed a note though.:thumbsup:

    i usually put the beer in close enough proximity to me that it doesn't make a difference whether i'm wired/wireless. :D
