Playing a show tonight


Recommended Posts

Tonight I am playing a show at a pizza place my friend works at. I have never played a serious gig in my life, only one or 2 songs at open mics and talent contests, so, anybody have any advice? My set list is below. Songs with astericks are originals.

 

Thanks so much... I am very excited! :thumbup

 

Pieholden Suite

Terrible Vision

Clouds

Jesus Etc.

Rollerskate Skinny

California Stars

Come Pick Me Up

Falling Slowly

Tear Stained Eye

After All*

Man on the Moon*

Time You Take *

Far, Far Away

Streets Where I

Bel Air is an okay song to play...dunno why I didn't think of it. I will keep it in my head in case I run through all those and need more to play.

 

I saw the Black Crowes last night A-Man and I thought of you

Oh, you know I love that song - just joshing you.

 

Here's the setlist of the show you went to last night.

Knock 'em dead Sarah! :thumbup The only advice I would offer is that usually for the first song or two I'm pretty anxious, so I like to start with something I can play in my sleep (or drunk :lol ). After I get acclimated it's fun!

 

Again, best of luck and have a great time.

:lol on the "low rider" reference A-Man. The trombone section of my high school band arranged that song for the section, and it was always so fun.

 

I play "On and On and On" based off of that solo acoustic tab that was posted in the tab section, but instead of capo on 5 I capo on 1 to sing it better. My register is higher so a lower capo works well. I also played around with the chords. It's more of an interpretation... I will see if somebody can video a bit of it friday that i can post.
