My band had a show last night, and we did a cover of 'Son and Daughter'. I messed up the lyrics, but I think we did a jobs job. Check us out.

not bad, but it sounds like you cant hear yourself too well, do you use ear plugs to help with feedback?

the band sounds pretty good, plenty of passion, with minor mistakes. a good song to cover, but when you actually sing the parts that the guitar replaced ("i, want, you, to be a woman") maybe sing the lowest part?

We don't use ear plugs, we just had major problems hearing ourselves through the onstage monitors. The outside mix wasn't that bad, our fans said it sounded great. The worst part of the performance was that I forgot the words to a song I've know for half my life. It happens to all of us I guess.

We've always wanted to do the three part harmony thing, but there's only two singers in the band. We tried it with just two harmonies, and it doesn't sound that good, so we decided not to sing it.

ah monitors..i forget about those too.

i plan on covering 'love of my life' (sinces ite fairly well known among non queen fans but not a cliche' that i know of) and i STILL get verses mixed up. so no worries, it happens to everyone. but you did the right thing by 'the show must go on'.

I fucking hate playing a gig without monitors.

I hate it because, when I walk off the stage, I have no idea how it sounded, so I don't know wether to be satisfied or not.

Even though people might tell me it sounded great, I'd rather have heard it myself.

I agree. We had monitors, great monitors (JBL'S) too, but I think the guy running the onstage monitors was new.

Have you guys tried in ear monitors? The first couple of times, I'll admit, was a bit strange. And if I'm singing, they still mess with my pitch. But they've become quite affordable and will let you go home WITHOUT your ears ringing at the end of the night.

Shure and Crown both make very decent systems.
Nady? Run.

Plus, you're only sending vocals thru those monitors, right? If so, sounds like you guys need less stage volume. Turn your amps down. Most people, when they can't hear themselves, turn up. Have the guy next to you turn down... obviously you're not blasting him!

I've tried them before, but the guitarist doesn't like them. I don't mind. I've used them a few times with a local Tejano band I play for, and they're not that bad.

We're a three piece band, so I'm (bassist) on stage left, and the guitarist is on stage right, with the drummer right in between. We're usually about twenty feet away from each other. As far as that gig went, I think it was just inexperience on behalf of the sound guy (onstage). The house sounded great from what I've heard (fan reaction). We're not usually that loud on stage, I don't turn my bass amp louder than 6, and the same goes for the guitarist. Our drummer is pretty loud, so we have to make sure he can hear us.

Thanks for the tips Microwave!
