Default Re: Worst Gig Experiences?

My first concert; I was playing Don't Cry by Guns N' Roses at a school concert, with a friend of mine on drums, some guy who I didn't really hang out with or get to know singing, and my school's music teacher on bass. I was playing guitar, or course. Before I went on, I had to set up my multi effects pedal, which I had 2 presets on. One for the clean guitar, with delay and chorus on top of it, and on for the distortion, which was slightly louder, and didn't really have any effects. I plugged it in, and it didn't work. So I had to change the clean to distortion on the amp. The amp didn't have 2 channels, only one, so I would have to roll up the gain knob all the way, and start playing again. When I got to that point, and I turned up the gain, the guitar was so loud, and overpowering, that we had to stop the song, and turn down the volume, and start again from where we ended up. Of course, we finished the song correctly then, but I was extremely embarrassed. lol
