How about those rocket like construction kerosene heaters? Those are pretty good!
Not smart in a barn full of hay.
depends what effect you are going for.
No thanks, I saw the Great White footage.
I had thought about it, but I play a lot of barre chords (dunno why, I just never taught myself to play the F shaped chord up the neck). Seems like it would get in the way of the strings.
What about a sweater?
You flatter me.
Was gonna ask about that. Decreasing temps have to make it tough.
the temp changing while you're playing makes the wood expand/contract. It's really rough on guitars.
...now a Poly Coated Tele probably would've been alright.
We used to do these Barn gigs every year....they were a blast... they ha fire works and several bon- fires. They would ask us to repeat the first or sencond set after 2 am to "wake the Amish" community across the pasture.
This guy knew how to throw a party, he had a buffet with wild game that he hunted, everything from bear to elk...4 wheel recreation vehicles and a track everyone took turns on, a large pond (swimmin' hole). Everyone brought campers and just set up in this massive field, and we would play in the barn, full PA and lighting.........good times....
Thanx for the memories!
I've never worn them but I here that the expensive under armor underwear kicks ass in cold weather. When I worked on the ramp in Denver some of the guys swore by it. But it's like 50.00 or better per item.
Yeah. Me too. Wasn't trying to go there though. That was a shame.
Hosts were smart and made plenty of no smoking signs. They made sure that everybody had a safe time. We had no pyrotech. It was the first time I wished we had the old par-can lighting, if only for the warmth.
Hate playing in the cold. Your fingers feel like cigars.
if my hands get cold while playing my left hand starts cramping up.. I would be done quick
Still all sounds like a great gig.
Nothing like 8000 watt pointed on you (in winter) ...
But it's your hands that get you. When I did that sub zero gig I stuffed my coat pockets with "hotshots" .....those chemical heat packs. Stuck my hands in my pockets after every song... I ended up having that constant pain of when your flesh is thawing.
I bet that barn sounded great! Lots of great records where cut in barns.
I think Canadians are taught never to take warming up ideas from Americans
Hey NGG...any video clips from that night?
