Hey guys, being bored and all, I'm gonna share a strange story about the guitar.

I was about to have my first gig in front of about 500+ people. I was doing a rock, shred rendition on the British National Anthem. I did what us guitarists would find average, pinch harmonics, pentatonic runs etc. Now, after that gig as I walked off the stage, this man in his thirties said to me "We're gonna form a band one day you and I". It was a strange experience taking to him, but he was right. Later in the day, that guy and a bunch of his buddies came over and said, "Could you be the KEYBOARD player?". Shocked, as I was thinking that they were gonna put me as guitarist. Lucky for them, I can play the keyboard. And now I'm stuck being the keyboard player to a folk band! Haha...

I guess to be a star, you have to do a load more other things...

Haha, how unexpected tongue.gif So basicly, they just assumed you could play keyboard?

Musicians succeed better if they're multi-functional, after all ^^
