Hi all !

I finally had my fist gig last night ! biggrin.gif and it went surprisingly well. There are some really nice fellas here who play together for some time and wanted to put up the show. They contacted me 4 days ago and asked if I want to help them with the second guitar. I said yes of course. Fortunately I knew some of the songs that they were playing and we had a hour of rehearsal before the show. It was mostly blues so it was easy to follow but still, it went surprisingly well and I got to play the intro for Voodoo Child biggrin.gif

Maybe continue as a band together if everything goes well.
I'll post some pics when I get them.

Oh and my new AMT SS-20 preamp was amazing. I don't know how much of the applause were for my improvisations of for the sound of this thing but it cut through the mix like the knife through butter tongue.gif

Great experience !

Thanks a lot guys ! smile.gif

So it was an underground bar here in Sibiu, there is a concert there every week or so. The strange thing was that I wasn't that nervous (as I thought I will be) but I was feeling very weak. I don't know why, maybe I wasn't rested enough, or because of the rehearsal before.. I had to drink a liter of mineral water with lots of sugar to get me on the feet. But after that it was all good.

We started with the Chameleon song from Herbie Hancock just to get in the groove and the and then Voodoo Child ( where I got to play the intro biggrin.gif ) and everybody got on their feet and start cheering and it was I got on steroids smile.gif)

I am still waiting for the pictures though. I'll post them these days smile.gif
