Coming up on the weekend, another wedding gig. A guy is singing this piece, and wants me to do the guitar part. Wish me luck....

Well, I did it. Phew! It was the toughest gig I've ever done... the guy singing was really good, and I wasn't so good with my playing. I had limited time to learn this tune, which I thought was easy when I first listened to it. I was wrong - it was bloody hard!

I felt a bit out of my comfort zone, but after a couple of times practicing the song with him, it went okay in the end. People were happy the performance, although I contribute most of that to the singer. He was real nice guy by the way.

The other wedding gigs I've done have been for redneck types (we all know the type), whereas this was a more sophisticated crowd. I could definitely feel the pressure! I'm glad it's over. :beer:

Glad it's over for you, Rob, but I'm sure you played quite well.
It's always difficult playing outside your comfort zone. I've done it, and was quite uncomfortable at the time.:)

Way to rise up and play out of your zone. Glad it went well!

Well, Well done. Take a bow. I love the guitar part in the Pavarotti/Sting vid. I bet it was "bloody hard".

Especially hard since I'm blues/jazz kinda guy. I really suck at playing that classical stuff.
