Re: girlfriends, wives, and the like coming to gigs
I'm wondering what it's like to have someone "help" you set up your drums. How do they know where eveything goes? How do they know what cymbal goes on what stand?
Do you sit down with your girlfriend and explain how memory-locks work? Do you show her your rug and say, "Honey, see these bits of duct tape here? That's where the ride cymbal stand goes. See, and then you attach this tom to the stand. No, not like that. Here, let me show you. Yeah, it's a little heavy, don't worry about it. Look, maybe you should be taking notes. You're going to need to have all this down by next week if you want to help me set up my drums."
