Merry Christmas all.

My mom is hosting the family shindig this year, we're expecting 14 people total. My cousin Bob has been playing keyboard/piano/harmonica in a bluesy type rock band for decades...he's pretty good, and he knows a million songs....we've jammed a little at a couple of previous family gatherings at Bob's house on his girlfriend's kid's little Fender amp and Strat that happened to be there. So my mother just called to tell me Bob is bringing his keyboard today, and she tells me to bring my guitar. I don't really have an appropriate amp to bring (no acoustic). I have this little super crappy practice amp that someone gave me, that sounds awful....and a Marshall Jubilee 100 watt half stack. I'm not bringing the Marshall.

then your choice is simple. use the little crappy amp. unless of course a shop is open where you can rent an amp for the day. good luck with that though, it's Christmas.

or maybe bob will bring the fender amp. call him

Mom just told you to bring your guitar, maybe thats her way of telling you Santa has an amp for you!!! Or not, but that would be very cool.

it's your family, I don't think you have to blow them away with perfect tone.

It's just for fun, I don't see what the problem is with the little amp.

Crappy amp it is. I need a decent 1x12 combo someday.

Shoulda learned some Christmas songs too. Oh well, looks like it'll be 12 bar blues jams again.

she doesn't mind listening to the radio. but hwen i finished my song 200 lashes, which is not a kinky song despite the titel, she wasn't even interested enough to go see the link. she won't play any, and she won't have live music around her. i doubt she's even been to see a live band in the last 20 years.

she broke her heart on music and gave up. and now it's anathema to her.

but i agree with you. no music? = no life.

It's Christmas and your Mom want's you to bring your rig over. I say you are very lucky and regardless of how crappy your existing small amp is or not, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to create memories that will last forever. You are blessed with a great Mom, you lucky dude!

Rock On!

your all set, those amps are programmed to play "house of the rising sun'
so at least you have 1 song down.

I was at a party at friends, and there was a guitar floating around, when I was given it to play, I strummed a couple of songs, and noodled around a bit, before playing some blues riffs, and a friend started improvising a song about his job.

Quite fun.
