Got my first gig tomorrow in front of a couple of hundred people, but this a guarantee failure.

We haven't practised together before, which we can't until the sound check.

We're playing:
Guns n Roses - Sweet Child o' Mine
Velvet Revolver - Slither, Fall to Pieces
Flyleaf - All Around Me

I have never even heard of the Flyleaf song before. Slither, I know all right should be able to pull it of. Fall to Pieces, I don't have to play much but I haven't learnt it yet. Sweet Child, I can play but not without the backing track yet. I am playing rhythm, which in my opinion is harder than a lead as if you funk up everyone notices instead of be able to say you were improvising. My rhythm isn't exactly the greatest as it is.

So, yea. Let's have bets how bad this is going to fail. I reckon 8/10.

And I am of to practice

I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.


I don't always post on UG, but when I do, I post in the Pit. Stay thirsty my friends.

If you havn't even rehearsed together with the band, and are going to try to play songs you havn't even heard yet, yeah it will be a 10/10 failure, practice all night and you might fail a bit less...

Why would you agree to play a song you've never heard?


I only got told that we are playing it, it doesn't sound that hard. I wouldn't have chosen three Slash songs either, I don't even like him that much.

You will burst in flames, But not because your playing is "On fire", More likely because of the angry mob that comes after you. All that because you didn't practise.

Oh yeah, Have fun

Quote by Tombe
With pedals you can throw your guitar down for an impromptu pedal drone solo, whereas if you did that on a rack it would just look like you were programming your washing machine.

Man and I thought i was un prepared :P

My advice just go up there and do some Jazzy Improv Jam. Thats what I do. Even if I am in a death metal band.


I need some sort of distraction, like the fat man stripping at the last gig I was at
Then no one would notice :P

I came to this thread expecting to say I bet you can pull it off, but damn. After reading that all I can say is, good luck man, you're gonna need it.
#23
You know those youtube videos you get? Like, "worst cover of Guns n Roses ever!" ?

Yeah, that will be you.

Make sure you get the fail on camera. Preferably on youtube so we can laugh at it.

Really man? You guys are booked for a gig and you haven't practiced?!? You deserve to fail.


It wasn't quite liked that, didn't find out about the gig till about a week ago. Then we have no where to practised as college is closed.

I can play, all around me now. Probably the easiest song I know

I like the confidence boost the pit gives me

I really think you should listen to the Flyleaf song...

...I don't think you will enjoy it, or that it will fit in with the setlist.

Wtf do you expect? Have you never been in the pit before?
#35
So...

A) You've never heard of the flyleaf one?
B) You haven't learned Fall to Pieces?
C) You haven't practised with the rest of the band?

Why are you even gigging if this is the situation?
On the topic of whiney singers.

Erm, about that..

I won't be able to take my amp as I have to catch the train so..

I have to borrow the amp, that I sold to my friend. Which is an MG.

I wanna do the gig but really this is the biggest

The person organising it, is the singer in the band and I don't really know her that well. But she hasn't done a very good job so far. The guitarist and drummer in my band also have another band, which are real good but they don't know if they are playing with them. So I blame the organising.

Oh well, at least my next gig can't be any worse
