One of those nights - ...grrrrrr......
Despite having a back spasm to end all back spasms, I worked last night. *
Started the night (as i usually do) on the BFP. *It's a little lighter than the UV. *I was wincing in pain every few minutes, but having a good time nonetheless. *My voice, which had been a bit frayed last week was back and strong.
About 2/3 into the set, I'm about to start playing a solo (i think it was on my ZZ top medley) and I broke not one, but TWO strings :shocked:. *The A and the D, no less! *Fortunately, I was able to finish the solo on an organ sound on my keyboard. *My singer handed me the UV and I finished out the set on it, wincing slightly more with pain.
I changed the two strings in the break and started with the BFP again. *The second set comes and I'm less than halfway into the set and I go to start the solo on "Brick House' - first bend - :shocked:POP*:shocked: the E string goes. *Finish the solo on organ and the singer hands me the UV again.
Of course, the third set had a lot of new rock stuff in it, so I ended up playing the UV for half the set anyway, just because I needed the low notes. *Ugh.
At the end of my last gig, I popped a D on my UV - thank god I didn't pop a UV string after the BFP strings - I woulda had to stop the set! *Fortunately, that hasn't happened....YET.
sorry - had to vent. *I feel much better now.
