Re: The feel-good gig of the month
AMEN,brother!you brought back a long forgotten memory of mine.I went to an audition years ago with my shit setup and got the usual stares and the occasional laugh from all these guys with all the cool shit(ie:Marshall half stack,vintage Les Paul,highway to hell-and back rackmounted who knows what..)me and my homemade poorboy rat"strat"clone,homemade tube amp(from dads stereo)and cheap ass Crestwood wah with optional paint job..and I didnt even have a distortion pedal.I had a Radio Shack preamp in front of all that.I got up dead last,and swear to God beat the shit out of that rig for five minutes.Got the gig.Turned it down when they asked me to get some real equipment.Just about every other guy there offered me a gig with that same equipment.Even had Albert himself tell me it was the best sounding stuff he ever heard a white boy play.I was hopin he was talkin about the licks,but I wasnt all THAT good.Still got almost all that stuff.You GO,man and let them boys know it aint the meat,its the motion!
