Default Re: What would you tell a keyboardist?

I feel a story coming upon me... years ago I knew a couple of good guitar players who got together to form a big band. They had lead, rhythm, bass and a drummer, then they invited a keyboard player along to jam at a charity gig.
Since they were all good players they didn't rehearse, they just turned up and began by playing the usual standards. It sounded absolutely dreadful. Unbelievably bad, they were playing in different keys, off-tune ... a mess. The lead guy walked off stage, they all fell out with one another (scuffles in the car park out the back) and the band broke up.

What it turned out had happened is that they didn't tune to the keyboard and so they were completely thrown by the fact that nothing sounded right.
Just saying you know....
