    Is volume killing smaller gigs?

    And therein lies the error. It's tempting, but it may work better if everyone else turns down. OK, the mix is wrong, bot only because the 'drummer' is at the wrong gig. It highlights their incompetence, and, if that doesn't bother them, it's a sign that it's time for a change. Let him thump away, but on his own. In extreme cases, putting down one's instruments and leaving the beggar to enjoy his evening-long drum solo may get the message across. Worth a try..?

    Best Heckle

    A 'Zappa Plays Zappa' gig at a prestigious Parisian venue. Dweezil Zappa launched into a slightly over-long monologue; interesting enough for the first few minutes, but had run out of 'steam'. A voice very, very close to where I was sitting (OK, it was me ...) chose a moment between phrases to call out loudly 'Shut up and play yer guitar..!'. He did (and very well, too...).

    Taking care of Cables

    It may be worth expanding on a point raised in a preceding post. It's really not a bad idea to invest in a quality wireless system; there are so many advantages, not least of which is the elimination of the risk of having cables trodden on..! One of the systems that have come up regularly with good, or even excellent, reviews is the Smooth Hound system... I have one (yes, I know; I'm a drummer , so..?), and it fully justifies its reputation. As a bonus, it allows one to really hear what the bass sounds like from the audience point of view. Just sayin'.

    Taking care of Cables

    Good advice on looking after 'em above, but just in case you need more cables another day, this site is the 'go-to' source for all the cabling needs, at more than reasonable cost, very fast service, top (and I mean top...) quality, run by our very own OBBM, a long-established, highly respected member here... OBBM cables ... What is my relationship..? Only that of a very satisfied repeat customer, for both standard and custom cables, nothing more. Just remember: Cables = OBBM. Hope this helps.

    Does anyone actually LIKE jazz?

    +1 ^^ 'Swing' isn't jazz, and jazz isn't always 'swing'.

    Summer of 69? Drop D?

    But they have actually played it before, surely..?

    Summer of 69? Drop D?

    A special case, and a special talent, but Joni Mitchell down-tunes and re-tunes to various 'open' and other tunings, 'live', on stage, and plays beautifully all evening. Gifted, maybe, or just lucky..?
