First... Gig?

Current mood: okay

So a friend of the family had a 40th Birthday party last night and his friend Gordan was going to be there.

Now Gordan's an exceptionally good guitar player, been playing for over 40 years and I'm pretty sure he's jammed with Tommy Emanuel a few times. He can listen to a song, and by the time it's finished he'll know how to play it.
He brought 2 guitars with him, one for me (I couldn't bring mine) and one for him.

The guy who's Birthday it was plays the drums and he brought his drum kit with him (The party was at a community hall). He also just recently got a Bass from eBay for his daughter (Who, funny enough, wants to play Bass) and he brought that with him too.

There were maybe 60 people or more at the party and we (The 'Band') played the music for the night. I can definately say I enjoyed myself and playing alongside Gordan is amazing. If I didn't know the song (We were playing alot of older songs as well) he'd spend a minute or so teaching me some chords and things to play in the background of his playing so that I wasn't just standing there like an idiot.

All in all it was a really good night and it was my first (Sort-of) gig, which was cool :)
