Well I played my first gig on friday never bothered making a thread til now cause i got kinda bored at midnight. Anyway i had lots of fun down at Mandys Coffee Shop in Carlisle, kinda like a 30 minute drive from my house but i knew the people there and they hooked us up with free coffee and some food after the gig. Lots of fun too, i was kinda bummed we didnt get a chance to play any metallica well heres the lineup of what we played. I had most fun with the eruption on stage cause i screwed up the one part just improvised and rode with it and the crowd enjoyed it ;)

1. System of a Down - Aerials
2. System of a Down - BYOB
3. Green Day - Good Riddance
4. Green Day - American Idiot
5. Van Halen - You Really Got Me
6. Van Halen - Eruption
7. ACDC - Back in Black
8. ACDC - Thunderstruck
9. Led Zeppelin - Black Dog
10. Led Zeppelin - Stairway to Heaven


Kinda stuff for the whole crowd, Closing with Stairway was nice though ;)

Getting better, not nearly as easy as i thought but its fun to screw around with it...honestly i only had it on the guitar for eruption cause of the dive bombs...i really didnt want to actually hit the thing or have the ambition to even screw with it during a solo such as stairways :lol:

keep it tight - it definitely takes practice but it's also a personality thing - it'll come to you... :wink:

hey Budd...have you ever heard The Spirit Of Radio by Rush? The intro to that song is amazing, it would be cool if you knew it or could learn it. Its played on the neck of the guitar.

Its been a while since i've heard any rush a good 3-4 years actually. But you might be in luck cause i think we might be playing some at my next gig next month back at the coffee shop February 24th ;)

It was actually lots of fun too...I thought i'd be really nervous and i was through the first two system of a down songs...but then we go to the green day [really easy stuff] and i just flew past then and when i screwed up in the eruption i kinda got worried but i just kept going and going and turned out decent enough. Not to mention all the coffee they hooked us up with i had to pee like 10 times :lol:
