Playing live is one of the most rewarding parts of being a musician for many of us, but it can also be stressful and challenging. Here are 4 quick things your band can do before the gig to help it go well.
Dan Spitz (@danspitz) is a legend in the rock world. As a co-founding member of Anthrax, he helped define the tone of metal for more than one generation, and he’s still hard at work pushing the boundaries of music and the influence that music can have on the world. Dan’s latest project has him playing slide blues on a Weissenborn style guitar, a lap-style instrument with a long, deep scale and a body cavity that extends up through the neck for impressive reverberation.
The thrill of performing live is half the reason most of us do this, or most of the reason half of us do this, however you want to put it, and that rush often leads to some of our best moments. Cell phones and handheld recorders are really convenient, but they never quite capture the experience of playing live. Why should you switch to live multitracking?
