    I did. It was the best New Year's ever. Here was my setup:

    Fender Jazz Deluxe V
    Valenti "Geddy Vee"
    Genz Benz GBE750
    Acme Low B 210

    We played to about 200 people in a packed bar. The crowd was really into it and danced the whole time. We even did a rendition of "I Love Rock and Roll" and had about 25 really drunk women on the stage with us. I had so much fun I can't sleep, so I am sitting her on TB drinking the champagne that my in-laws didn't drink.
  4. Me too. I was playing Celebration by Kool and the Gang at the turn of midnight. :)

    I hated the thoughts of the gig I had going in. Halfway through the night, I changed my mind.

    I had a blast tonight!!!

    Happy New Year everyone!!!!! :)

    I might have, had my mam and dad not been in bed (they were working this morning). Instead, I was playing on my 360, then I watched an episode of Rab C nesbitt!

    i did. We had a jam session at the place where we practice. That was great fun, lots of musicians but as i was one of only two bassists i got to play for over 4 hours of blues / rock / funk covers, you name it :D oh yeah. My fingers did hurt a bit afterwards :)
  10. i was working on recording a line i had just come up with. so i could send it over to my band mates to work around. and i completely forgot about the time :p
