i havent had time to get on here since then, but i figure ill share it now anyway. had a gig on saturday, it was for this all day park festival type thing. i practiced 3 times with the guitarist/vocalist who had all the songs, and a drummer. drummer was good, but not serious about music. so we have the songs down for the most part, including some covers, and go play the gig. we get there, and theyre running a nice system, EON powered monitors, and 8 yorkville PA cabs, powered by 4(yes FOUR) PLX 3402s. sheesh. too bad this is the first show theyve used them(the engineer at the studio i play at works for these guys, and he told me they had just got them) so theyre running them WAY loud, i cant hear jack from the monitors, and theres about 20 people, sitting, in the audience. if im not in a coffeehouse, i tend to compare audiences to bigger shows ive played, which depresses me. blah. we then get to the goo goo dolls song we were covering, which we practiced in standard tuning, except for the last practice, where the guitarist decided to capo on 1 so he could sing better for it. get to the show, and i watched him capo it on 2 this time(what the??), so im transposing everything in my mind, and he starts the song. i go to play, and im a half step off. so i recoup my thoughts, realize im right on with my fingerings, and i must have bumped my tuner for my E. so right after i adjust a half step or so, he turns my way, and i see hes capoed back on 1. !!!!! so i have to REtune on the fly, and then remember im a half step back for all the notes. argh. ive never played that bad in my life. the rest of the set just went crappy then, and i jetted right after to go to an acoustic jam with some guys. that went very well ok, enough rambling.
