It could have been bad...

Post by Blindboy » Sun May 29, 2016 11:45 pm

Well, Saturday night, we played at the restaurant and had a large number of guest artists and audience. (It's a holiday weekend) Some friends of mine from Albuquerque were playing at the bar across the street (where we used to play) so I went over to watch them. They were a killer three piece and sounded awesome! I was invited to sit in... it was the first time I have played at this bar in years, since we parted ways on a bad note. I got up with my little modded fender amp and my Casino and played a few songs, having a great time. I set my Casino down (carefully, I have busted a guitar on this stage before) and as I hopped off of the stage, my foot caught on the cord and yanked my guitar off of the stage. :yikes: It's about a four foot drop and I was unable to catch it before it hit the ground. :thumbsdown: I picked it up and checked it over and it seemed all right so I put it back up on the stage by my amp. Later, when they invited me back up for a couple more songs, the dang thing was still in tune! :phew: No damage, thank goodness, except a volume knob fell off. They found it and saved it for me.

:phew: indeed. You had more luck than I - I damaged my car while driving backwards. Looked into the mirror to stay away from a brick wall, didn't notice a wooden bar on the other side. Damn, need a new fender. Not Fender... :cry:

A near thing Blindboy, but so easy to do even when being careful. Not the type of guitar you want to have throwing itself off a stage - OK for something like a Tele maybe which would just damage the floor. Must have been a relief to find all was well. :thumbsup:

Bad news about the car Gerd - another thing that is so easily done. :sad:

Yes. You are right. The outcome could have been worse, but it was not. Is not it weird how people think. We, including me, think first and foremost for the worst. I think for the worst so much that I'm slightly paranoid. God I'm Doomed.
