I think you meant "roadies", not "groupies". The latter only 'help' in distracting you while you're trying to pack your gear after you're finished.

MaltaGirl

Lol, yes, you're right... having never had either I'm not too hot on the terminology!

Antonio

Hey you're making me miss the 'live' panic of performances! It's incredible how little things seem like the end-of-the-world once everyone is watching and waiting for you to start :)

Even with all the problems you mentioned, you seem to be enjoying though... which is great!

MaltaGirl

Well musicians love to swap war stories about disasterous occurances at live performances, lol!

I had a blast last night :-) There was one song in particular, and I think you'll understand what I mean, where the music was very powerful, the rhythm driving, the melody haunting... and I could see people competely immersed in it. And if nothing else, all the hassle was worth it just for that one song :-) (it's the one I wanted to record).

Antonio

I know the feeling - all hassle ultimately becomes worth it because of those couple of seconds (hopefully minutes or even hours) when you see that everything fell in its place.

We then forget everything and want more... which brings with it more hassle :)

Athena

Call me dirty-minded (which I am) but since when church music groups have GROUPIES?:P Have I missed something in my long absence from church? *cheeky grin*

MaltaGirl

Vicious circle, eh, Antonio? :-)

Athena, as Kenneth pointed out, it's ROADIES that I need, not groupies... honestly, you people don't let me get away with ANYTHING... :-P

Athena

It's because we're all horribly dirty minded :-)

Antonio

Yes it is Maltagirl :)

About the groupies thing... leave them for my band (which doesnt exist yet) if you ever find some ;) Jokes apart, having a roadie helping especially in carrying things around helps A LOT and makes life much more easier. Even just one person, who usually isn't musical but digs music and is made to feel as part of the band, is enough for me. Usually it's a friend or someone close who doesn't mind wasting time hanging around.

MaltaGirl

Well, Athena, I suppose that's ok, because my mother has often had occasion to tell me to get my mind out of the gutter... it's not my fault that my brain makes connections! *snicker*

Antonio, yes, sure, I will point any groupies (real or imaginary) your way... in return, please send me any spare roadies, because in the meantime I am resorting to snagging any innocent bystanders who look like they are too nice to say "No" to "*smile* Would you mind taking this amplifier out to the van? Thanks! *smile*". heheheh...

Kenneth

My amp weighs around 30 kg and is rather bulky to carry around. Please, send any roadies THIS way (groupies go through the back door.)

MaltaGirl

Hmmm, how about time-share roadies? Lol.

But 30kg? Sheesh. Mind you, I tried to lift our heaviest one on Sunday and I couldn't.

Kenneth

I had to get used to it, though I don't carry it around much lately as I'm not currently involved in any bands.

Viva l-qtugħ ta' laħam l-għada!

Antonio

X'inhu mela l-amp Ken? Jekk nixtri wiehed jien bil-valvi kieku nikkunsidra biss - xi Laney abbli.

Kenneth

Dan. Tal-valvi ovvjament li aħjar, imma b'biċċa Squier Strat (li għadha minn ta' meta bdejt 6 snin ilu) b'pickups nofshom imsaddin u l-electronics kollha iridu t-tibdil) + amp bil-valvi = [bżonn urġenti li nixtri kitarra sura] diżastru nobis fil-ħoss.

Allura kelli ninqeda b'dan.

Antonio

Ifhem jien nemmen li l-amp huwa hafna iktar importanti biex ikollok hoss tajjeb milli l-kitarra innifisha. Jigifieri m'ghandekx skuza ghax ghandek squier :)

Biss il-Marshall (bil-valvi u minghajrhom) dejjem rajthom bhala matti bhala hoss ma nafx ghala... opinjoni suggettiva ovvjament - ghax anki l-Fender amps idejquni kultant (skond is-setup) ghax qisu ghandhom hoss wiehed taghhom u daqshekk.

Xi darba nixtieq nipprova xi Hi-Watt jew xi Vox... imma nahseb finanzjarjament huma naqra (jew hafna) out of reach :)

Grazzi btw tad-diskursata - ili ma nitkellem (jew nikteb) dwar amps u muzika ingenerali mhux hazin :)

Kenneth

Naf re: Marshall, imma kont fi żmien fejn kelli bżonnu ta' malajr u dak l-aħjar li stajt insib. Huwa minnu li l-amp jagħmel il-ħoss mhux il-kitarra, imma jekk tara l-kitarra tiegħi, tbiddel fehmtek. Kull amplifier bil-valvi li ppruvajt, tarraxni bil-feedback li bdiet tagħmel!

U naħseb li Maltagirl qed tarana dimonji ;) Għalhekk, inkomplu did-diskursata darb'oħra f'x'imkien ieħor.

MaltaGirl

Ibżax, Kenneth, qisu tiegħek... mhux għalhekk qiegħed hemm il-"comments"? ;-)
