Thread Name: Help needed from guitarists
Subject: RE: Help needed from guitarists
Our band doesn't gig much these days, and we never practice together
for geographical distance reasons.
If we have time prior to gig soundcheck, just a quick set reminder and run through of new songs learnt apart in isolation.
So I easily get random fits of forgetfulness and panic
and have to lift the fingerboard up close to my face
to get my orientation back as fast as possible under variable stage lighting.
But all the time I need to keep my eyes firmly on our singer and lead guitarists hands
to follow his constant unpredictable variations from song patterns and structures..
good job we've been playing in bands together
for over 35 years..
