I spent a bit of time working on improvising today. Not over any of the tunes on the list, but using essentially the same ingredients.
I made the set list for the gig on two pages with a large font size. This makes it easier to see when it is taped somewhere near the floor; such as on a monitor.
In case you do not know, a monitor is a wedge-shaped speaker cabinet that faces the musicians onstage. Big name musical acts use in-ear monitors that are like super wonderful ear buds like one uses with an mp3 player. They are super wonderful though, and expensive too.
I did get my first lesson scheduled for next week with Barry the musician I mentioned a few installments ago. I will probably get clobbered with information.
There are just a few more days until the gig. I hope to see some of you out there.
