Ive been working on my stage presence a lot. And after 2 weeks of rehearsing jumping around, looking away from my left hand, and interacting with the other members of the band I was ready to try some of it out at my gig last Friday night. It went pretty well for the most part. I played a little sloppier but I the crowd was into the music more. And then it happened: Our last song rocks pretty hard and the rhythm guitar and I jump back into playing after a shredding guitar solo. I jump I kick my heels back I kick my amp combo The volume slides from 2 (which was plenty loud for the venue) to 10 I land while I slam down on my E string. It was like an atom bomb blast going off behind me. I didnt realize the volume had just moved and I thought I might have driven my heel through the grate into the driver. I know I didnt keep my game face on and I had to turn around to verify my fears. It took what felt like forever (but was probably only 5 seconds) to figure out the volume was up because I kept looking at the face of the cab to make sure I hadnt kicked a hole through it. The moral of the story: make sure you have plenty of space in front and behind you when you jump around.
