Murphy's law

Disaster or success? Probably, or at least hopefully a combination? Ola said to me just as I jumped into the van: "no back up guitar today"? Hey what can go wrong, one gig, one hour, new strings, new battery for the Piezo mic - it's cool! The soundcheck went flawless with the best stage sound ever at Bryggarsalen thanks to Josefine Faber (I've played there many times over the years).

Gigtime - the guitar is dead except for a scratching sound. To make a long story short, the input jack had gone bezerk (when and how did that happen...beats me?) Being the first gig in 26 months, all kinds of thoughts started to emerge in my head. Can we play? What can we play? How much time do we have left after all this? Anyway, after I realized the new conditions I changed my mindset and after a while I kind of liked being a hands free singer again. In fact I noticed or maybe I should say discovered a thing I haven't thought of before, like for instance how much the memorizing of lyrics is connected to your guitar playing (mindblowing)! I'm also very happy and impressed by the way Musical Companion took the opportunity and made the best of the situation. Ola played in a more freely fashion that suited the "new line-up" very well. Kjelle tried to cover up for missing harmonies and Anton and Thomsson were all over the place covering up for me. Thank you big time lads!

I also want to thank Mats, Håkan, Josefine, the bands and everyone else involved for making Sweden Prog Fest 2014 the nice and warm festival it was and last but not least you - the audience for being so supportive during such a rough gig as this. Thank you! I've probably done over 1 000 gigs with my Gold top and it has never failed me. The first time ever I go to a gig without backup my golden friend shows real bad behaviour, it must be Murphy's law! Anyway, the lesson is learned - always travel with two guitars!
