Just wanna share the things happened this last friday.
I have booked a gig just some week in advance and my bass player & drummer were occupied touring with other bands.
So most of the week I had to call all the people I know to get some people to fill in for them.
That was not an easy task, so when thursday night came I still dont have any musicians.
But then I got this faboulous idea - the joint where I was supposed to play on has a blues jam evry thursday, so
I simply went there and asked the drummer in the band if he was available. He was, and the drummer was fixed.
Then me and the drummer spent the whole friday to find a bass-player, which was impossible, so I asked my
ex-girlfriends new man if he could do the bass. (he is a guitar-player, not very skilled though)

Of course we didnt have any time for rehearsing, so we just got there and played. It started off pretty bad, since the
first thing that happens was that the dish-washer(!) told us that we where too loud since there was a couple of old
people dining about 5 meters from us. After we lowered the volume everything went just great, and we played some
ballads and slow blues numbers, and the old lady was very grateful when they left.

The rest of the night really rocked, we did all those old Santana, Zeppelin, Clapton, Hendrix songs mixed with blues standards
and some of my own songs. Besides that there was some wrong notes on the bass occasionally and we missed some endings,
the night was a succes and we got great kudos from the audience. I just enjoyed every minute of it, playing live with real musicians
for the first time in nearly 15 years!!! What a night!!!

Right! Unless You perform for some critical superstars at NAMM, who gives a damn if there are some wrong notes? It was kinda the point with this thread - to encourage some people here to hit the stage and deliver some positive energy. Thats what it all about !!! biggrin.gif

This kind of gig was always the most fun, even when it's more spur of the moment than your arrangement. Glad you had the opportunity to play with real live people again, too. Can't wait to see and hear more of the same.
