In the blues/rock trio I play with we have a set of 4 classic rock songs we usually pick to finish from. But by far my favourite is Baba O'Riley - Pearl Jam version

Re: Zoom Q3HD Video Recorder

My guitarist has one and we have been taking it along to gigs recently. The sound picked up from it is really good, but the video is so-so. Especially with the lighting issues others have pointed it....

Re: Seeking kit with 26 bass & natural laquer finish

I picked up a Zep set in black lacquer the tail end of last year.

Re: kick beater flutter thread no 1001

I have had this same issue now, moving over to an un-ported head. I don't know what it is, but it seems to be more noticeable in bigger rooms.

Re: Offered a gig, don't know what to do!

Sounds like a really tough decision as you are kind of jumping in the deep end. i.e. first real covers band.

Re: Does your band OVERPLAY?

Space and dynamics are the two most important things in music I would say.
