flake_E_lee Just getting started
Default when your solo just..gone!!!

so,just home from doing a support slot for a band and we had a 1 hr slot to do.
All went exceptionally well but for 1 song..and its a song I know inside out and even made a solo for it as its a song that has no solo
Well ,it comes to the solo and gone..erased from my brain!
Couldn't find my position,how the solo which I made for it even was supposed to sound...nada!
traincrash!
Ever had this happen?

So what did you do, burst into tears, or just fake it ?

I've had that happen in rehearsal, not on stage. The next best thing is when you have to start a song and you draw a complete utter blank as to how it starts...and everybody is just looking at you like "OK, whatchya waitin' for!?!?!? Uuuhhhhh....


AlyKat's question is a good one...what did you do?

One time in my band we had 2 guitar players & each started playing a different song & I was like WTF, which one do I start singing..I followed the bass & drums & we just drowned out the one guitar player as he simultaneously realized what was going one & switched to the song everyone else was doing...it was funny !

Well, as a bassist if I was doing a solo it was already done out of either a matter of desperation or irony so...

Slide bass in G minor 'cause fuck it or everybody chokes and I do what I have to do until guitarists find their balls again.

Hence the importance of the ability to improvise. Adapt on the fly and no one is any the wiser.

Forgetting the words of a song while playing live would totally suck

As lame as it was I always had the words in front of me just in case...that was my biggest fear.

I've done that sometimes. I might make something up on the spot. Or mumble, sometimes that works. Or repeat lines from another part of the song.
