Paddymac et al--

Sound advice. (Gasp) I think we are sort of stumbling along a converging path. Our last gig was our first chance to play with a new sound system. I guess as you say nobody ever believes he and/or his instrument has enough volume. There was also a problem in that this was street fair & the noise from an electric generator, though not so loud as to drown the music, got inside our heads & messed us up. It was like we were selectively deaf on that pitch, & me and my alto lady were having a hell of a time finding our pitches. Would have loved to take your last piece of advice but the coppers had their stupid "public info" table directly across the street from us. As we were eyeball to eyeball, I felt that a hip flask was probably counter-indicated, though I'm sure it would have helped my balance.

Seriously, we'll work along the lines of what you said. Thanks again.


PS Yeah, well, I was about to get an artist to paint a lovely picture of Sambulus egregius on my h.d. case, but I guess you're right. Guess that wisdom belongs over with the thing about not letting your dog eat poinsettias.
