Well, I had the gig, and I have to say, it was amazing. There weren't a ton of people there, maybe 30. I played each song perfectly. The place I played at is called Planet Rock. They usually only allow people over 21 to be there. I'm 13, so they let me play there just that one time. Apparantly they got so many people asking when I would play there again that I'm allowed there anytime. They've also said that they would allow my band to play there, provided that I play there, of course!
I will admit, I have been told quite often that I'm very good at guitar, especially for my age. Yesterday, at my guitar lesson, I got an offer from my guitar teacher to play at a gig - with his band! Not only that, he told me he was recording some metal for a CD that he was putting out, and he asked me if I would mind recording with him on that album!
Also, my guitar teacher isn't like some guy down the block that happens to play guitar and just needs some money. He is part of a Black Sabbath tribute band Mr. Crowley, that tours all around the country. He is also in another band called Slap Maggy (the one I'm gonna be playing with) that is very popular around here.
Well, UG, I lost a lot of respect for Guitar Center today. I decided a few weeks ago on getting a Marshall stack. I ordered a new Marshall MA50H from a guy on Ebay, and I got it right on time. I also ordered a used Marshall AVT412 from Guitar Center. It took them almost a week to get it to me. I looked at the model name, and it said: MG412. They sent me the WRONG ONE. Not only was it the wrong one, they sent me an MG cab!!!
I called Guitar Center about it (I bought it from a GC in Arizona), and they said they would mail me a shipping label for the wrong cab. I would call UPS, and they would pick up the wrong cab. When Guitar Center gets the cab, they will ship the right one. This is gonna take me 2 weeks to get the cab. Me angry.
