It's the big gig. Or the first,doesn't matter. What matters is how to be in control of your gear and your sound. That's why I'm here.
What's a D.I.? Why are there 2-4 channels on your amp? Tube vs.solid state? What's that buzzing sound? These are all questions that I have found women are afraid to ask.
So who am I to be the one to answer? I'm a working musician who has been gigging in every type of room for 10 years and have been working guitar retail for 20+ years.
