Re: slight OT: scary situation: 1st live performance at an open mic....
Congratulations on your first time playing out. You were smart to keep it
simple. After years of experience, I have a basic rule that I almost never
"Never introduce more than one new thing at each gig."
The "thing" could be a piece of gear or it could be a new technique.
That way I only have to worry about one thing blowing up in a totally
unexpected way. Everything else I've probably dealt with before or at
I know the thing well enough to deal with it without thinking too much.
