Third gig - great guitar, sad occasion: funeral



Played at a very dear frend's funeral with my good friend and fellow musician Frank Janssen.

Because we did some singing, I needed the Fishman once more.

First use of the mike on that one. Mike and guitar sounded very very good!

So the feedback issues must have been due to the small room and not-so-smart place of the amp. Thanks for the advice!

We did the entry music, improvising around a Dutch song from the sixties (verdronken vlinder -drowned butterfly-, by Boudewijn de Groot).

And we did two songs, Dutch translations:

- 'De gedachten zijn vrij', Die Gedanken sind frei -my thoughts freely flower-, check Pete Seeger;

- and 'Als jij me lief hebt', If you love me, check Malvina Reynolds.

Used the guitar for a jazzy lead in the entry; for a steady rythm in the second, a more biting bluezy playing ijn the last one.

The occasion was sad; but this 575 is great!!!
