JEM 7VWH in public for the first time

co. picnic was this sunday...which i am always against those things. BUT one of the guys had this bright idea to play at the picnic. he's a gigger.... top 40 beach boys stuff. i have never played that stuff and swore i never would. well, he hits me up with this 2 days before the picnic. we never played before of course and there were 2 days notice! we snagged the warehouse manager for drums. he hasn't played in 14 years! not lookin' too good.

long story short, we get there, setup, no one knew we were playing. lots of people. we did 2 surf tunes and a carlos santana tune.... i learned them on the fly. the one tune was "pipeline" from the ventures. i did it like anthrax did....metalled it up a bit. i started the whole thing out with the national anthem; hendrix style.... everyone loved that. whammy bar city crazy! hehehee.

anyway, i got so many compliments on the jem. no one ever saw one before and they were in awe. it is artwork. the tone was happy with that guitar. that was the first time i "gigged" with it. it sounded so great through my 2X12 Crate.

they want us to get together and play again..... uh..... nahhhhh. the MC who organized this introduced us well and for me it was perfect...... WE HAVE STEVE ON THE GUITAR WHO IS A METAL PLAYER AND WE ARE THANKFUL TO HAVE HIM HERE..... HE IS SWALLOWING HIS PRIDE TO PLAY SOME BEACH BOYS ALONG WITH US. hehehehe. i snuck some metal in there...... and it was good.

Man that sounds great Personally I'm a big fan of the Beach Boys, great tunes and who can resist singing along with at least some of the tunes

I used to play Pipeline out a few years back, and I think it's a really good fun tune to play It was sort of like "Miserlou" but not as mainstream after the whole Pulp Fiction thing.

Ironically I think the JEM7VWH has a brilliant clean tone for the whole surf style thing, but I couldn't resist doing a "Scott Ian" with the whole thing either

I definately think you should play with these guys again, it might even help you climb the corporate ladder

we're talking about jammin' again but i'm not sure if it will happen. if so, it won't be a serious venture.

Great story, dude.
And the mandatory Superman T-shirt.

I wish my company had picnics or something, but the only thing we do have is a payday night out and the object of those is to get as drunk as you can.

Not really my thing, but I still tag along.
