The US Air Force wants me to perform the National Anthem for my wife's change of command ceremony at Shaw Air Force Base in South Carolina.
It'll be a very professional situation with about 450 troops standing and saluting at attention, with my wife accepting the US flag while I play the Star Spangled Banner.
Thing is, I'm wondering how much creative liberty I should take in this situation.
I want to give a solid Rock and Roll guitar performance (which is why i've been asked to do this) but I think this situation calls for proper by-the-book so to speak rendition.
What would you do in this situation?
This will be the first impression of all of my wife's subordinates and superiors.
Also, which guitar and amp?
I'll need to acquire new gear once there since all my stuff will be on a ship from Japan.
