The "What went/ is going wrong today?" thread.
Jul 08, 2012 - 4:26 PM - by willsellout
willsellout's Avatar In the interest of fairness, I think we should have a place to post shit that sucks as well as a place to post when it does not.

I've got a headache that won't go away, my kid is acting retarded, I am traveling for work for the next week, and I don't really have any food in the house that I want to eat.

On the plus side, my kid is in her room for the foreseeable future, I have alcohol to help with the headache, and I'm sending the wife to the store to pick up some food. I'm also packed for my trip.

300 watts makes this a loud little bastard and playing my rather aggressive TBC bass sounds kinda angry!

i finally have an amp that is gig worthy and i don't need a bigger vehicle to haul it around!

The Business "I Have A Friend" Thread
Apr 23, 2014 - 8:57 PM - by basshunter
basshunter's Avatar We have a lot of threads here that revolve around people's businesses, careers, livelihoods. I have learned a great deal from you all, whether directly or indirectly, through these discussions over the years. I suspect many of you have as well. That said, not everybody can speak freely about their businesses without fear of repercussion, the information age having its still grey areas regarding...well, you know.

So let this thread be the theoretical dumping ground for general business/management/development/HR/etc. information seeking in the "i have a friend who" could,use some advice.

Wedding Gig
Apr 20, 2014 - 3:51 PM - by cdb
cdb's Avatar We are not a wedding band by any stretch, we are a bar band--but we were asked to play a wedding, just so the groom who has seen us play many times could sing some Johnny Cash tunes for the assembled guests. Gotta be one of the weirdest gigs I have ever done.

We play 5 or six songs, people start dancing, and then the daughter of the bride (early to mid 20's) decides it's dinner time. This was not the way the schedule was presented to us.

Before we resume our next "set" the daughter of the bride pulls some shit. She was going to make a toast after dinner and then serenade her mom and new step dad with an Ingrid Michealson song on ukelele and we were going to back her up. Well it turns out she didn't bring her ukelele, and at the last minute decides she wants to play an [I]entirely different[/I] Ingrid Michealson song that we have never heard or practiced.

We get busy looking up the chords on our phones and try to listen to it before the set. But then she tells us she needs to sing it "lower" than the recording so we try to transpose it on the fly down to F#. Now I have only heard this song once thru the speaker of an iPhone during this wedding redeption. Apparently the bass holds the whole thing together, but I failed to do so, being unfamiliar with the song, much to her bitter disappointment, with a nasty look over her shoulder at the end of the song. I figured, fuck it, you reap what you sow, pull shit at the last minute, and I still got paid, got fed and drank for free. The groom, on the other hand was very happy with our Johnny Cash and Chuck Berry tunes.

I couldnt play a song I never heard and never practiced much to the daughter of the brides disgust.
