Dealing with a whining guitarist


Platinum Member
We had a guitarist who would fiddle with the settings for half a minute before every song. Audience is waiting, we're waiting, he's tweaking the amp or clicking 10 pedals or swapping guitars...

Now we have a new guitarist who plugs straight into his amp and just hits the footswitch for solos. Sounds like a guitar to me, we play more songs, audiences are happy, we're getting more gigs...

I will add that playing through a crappy guitar amp is like trying to shag with half limp whiskey dick. There's a point where you're just pushin' rope. I'm not making excuses for guitarists that don't have their shit together, as getting a good guitar sound isn't all that hard. I just want to make sure we all know that there's a line that exists somewhere between rocket sauce and impotence.
