Tip #1 – Tuning (Video)

I recorded this back in September of 2014, but thought I’d share with you once again!

Tip #2 – Bad Sound Continued

Last week I wrote about dealing with a sound man that is incompetent or unwilling to help you.  To take it a step further, in situations like this, sometimes all you can do is just get through the gig.  The best advice I can offer in this particular situation is to back off and trust that your sound is getting out to the front of house.  That’s probably the TOUGHEST thing to keep in mind as we’re typically used to hearing ourselves… but if you start to over play and over blow to compensate, you’ll wear yourself down in no time flat!

Have you been in situations like this?  We’d like to hear your experiences!

Have a GREAT week!
