Thanks mate wink.gif

Well,best thing about giging is sharing pure energy with audience.
And I don't think only of raw and loud energy like playing heavy stuff etc.
It's also like when you're singing some soft part with keys in background and then add nice solo after.
Dunno,it's just wonderful. smile.gif

Best thing ever happened to me?
Can't tell for sure,just trying to give 100% from myself all the time.
And biggest award is applause I guess so lets say I've had many best moments so far. smile.gif

And worst...probably breaking the string while shredding laugh.gif

Yup, would def agree, a total buzz to play live, nervous tension before the gig etc, love it! smile.gif

just trying to think of a worse moment here ... actually not so much worse but most embarassing and it wasnt me, our drummers stool leg went through the floorboard on the stage and he fell off his stool mid song(not hurt or anything) but was real funny, not at the time, but afterwards ... and now actually thinking about it laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif

The free beer!

When our vocalist (was was also playing guitar at that gig) raised his amps volume so it completely drowned mine. This was after the sound check (about 1 second before we started gigging) so it was a huge surprise to both me and I'm sure the sound technician.. and it was very wierd to play without hearing myself at all mad.gif

So everything went pretty much alright for me. No beer spill over amp or pedals. No accident smashing guitar into a wall or anything. *knock on wood*

The Best Experience: Playing the guitar solo for Queen's: We Will Rock You. The pounding and clapping of the crowd then me ripping out May's solo and hitting everything perfect.

The Worst Experience: Having my mom open my bedroom door and tell me that dinner was ready... Dang none of the aforementioned event actually happened!

Oh well, maybe one day!

Hey guys, the worst gig I ever had was when I worked in the house band at a strip bar every weekend for a year. After every song, there was no applause whatsoever! We were simply providing background music for the girls to dance to. It sucked.

Yeah,that kind of gigs is really killing people,specially musicians.
I played on few events,parties for major companies,
you're just sneaking around,quiet as possible.
It was like...an iPod band laugh.gif
